With the arrival of the season’s first major snow, and more in the forecast for the Salt Lake valley, there will be days in the coming weeks when traveling to and from school is challenging for families.
So, please, give yourself extra time to walk and drive to school or arrive at the bus stop safelyand be careful out there. On wet, wintry days, our schools are lenient with tardies, because we want everyone arriving to school safe, sound and ready to learn. Keep in mind that, while some of us would prefer to be hitting the slopes or staying tucked in bed with a good book, “snow days,” or school cancellations are rare in Utah. More often, the District will choose to delay the start of school in order to provide our partner cities with more time to clear sidewalks and streets.
Such decisions are made by Canyons administrators in cooperation with the Transportation Department, which has drivers out surveying the condition of roads as early as 4 a.m. To alert parents about school closures and delays, the District will employ its website, the Skylert emergency-communication system, and 脸书 and Twitter (@canyonsdistrict and @CanyonsT). Parents and employees should also listen to Wasatch Front radio and television stations for more information.
Bottom line: No public announcement means schools will be open and operating as usual. Unless extreme weather creates unsound traveling conditions, schools operating under the Canyons District umbrella will remain open on scheduled school days.
About 34,000 students count on us to deliver a quality education in a safe, welcoming environment. Unscheduled school closures disrupt learning and place a burden on parents who work full time and can’t easily be home to supervise their children. Neighborhood schools also are a primary source of breakfast and lunch for many of our students.
巴士站： Parents are asked to meet their children at bus stops when buses are running on delayed or emergency schedules. To stay abreast of bus delays and other transportation-related announcements, follow the CSD Transportation Department’s Twitter account @CanyonsT.
Canyons District has established the following communications policies in the event of a school closure. The District will employ its website, the Skylert emergency-communication system, and 脸书 和Twitter（@canyonsdistrict）提醒家长有关学校停课的信息。父母和雇员应收听Wasatch Front广播和电视台以了解学校关闭的信息。
我们将告诉您的是： 学区将传达以下三个信息之一：1）学校关闭的日期和日期； 2）学校开课的日期和日期； 3）和日期和日期学校将被解雇。
我们如何决定： 峡谷停学主管或他的指定人在与高级职员协商后授权将宣布停课。的 国家气象局 也可以咨询其他州，县和市的机构。
关闭仅适用于一天： 所有公告仅限一天。 没有任何公告意味着学校将正常开放并正常运营。
While school-closure decisions will be made in the best interest of a school community, the District respects the rights of parents and guardians to decide what’s best for children in their care. Please remember, however, that school absences can quickly add up and cause students to fall behind.
化妆天数： Days lost because of inclement weather are made up on Presidents Day. The Board of Education reserves the right to make adjustments to the schedule as needed.
