Building a Culture of Safety

Safety at our Schools

We work hard as a District to prepare for and prevent emergency situations, and we’re encouraged by statistics that show schools are the safest places for children. Schools are the heart of a community, and must often serve as the linchpin of a community’s response to an array of emergencies from fires and earthquakes to hazardous spills. This is where a “safety-first” mindset and emergency-preparedness pay off, and why it’s important for all of us Think Safe. Below is detailed information about some of the steps Canyons District has taken, and will continue to take, to keep our schools welcoming, secure and prepared. We encourage families to familiarize themselves with this information and discuss it at home. If you have children in one of our schools, tell your child that the most important thing to do in an emergency is to follow the directions of their teachers and school staff. It’s important to reassure them and let them know that you have confidence in the training that school staff have received. We also welcome your questions and ideas, which can be emailed to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
