COVID-19 Action Plan and Updates

Is Spring Recess still happening as planned? Is the school year being extended to accommodate make-up days? What is Canyons doing to support at-home learning? The dismissal of all 50 CSD schools and programs as a preemptive measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 has generated a lot of questions, and it’s important that families know where they can go for timely information they can trust. Canyons District has created a web portal where students, parents and employees can find the latest announcements and developments. Government guidelines are changing rapidly, and we’ll updating our community on a regular basis, so please bookmark this link for future reference. The Canyons Board of Education and Administration wish to express appreciation for the community’s support and efforts and diligence of our employees as we pull together to keep our communities healthy and safe.

Preparing for the End of the School Year

The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and spring fever is emerging. The end of the school year can bring fun and excitement…and sometimes a dose of stress and worry. Behavior changes are common in your students during the months of March, April, and May. Students may feel stressed about end-of-year testing and projects that are looming. They may worry about an unstructured summer and saying goodbye to friends, or just be feeling “burnt out.” You may notice that your child is increasingly irritable or emotional, or see a change of eating and sleeping habits, and an uptick in erratic behavior or withdrawal. These could be signs of extra stress and anxiety your student is experiencing. It is important to recognize these feelings and worries as well as provide validation and supports. The following list provides ways to support your student during these stressful times.

  • Reinforce good sleeping habits. Students should get 8-10 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Remove technology from bedrooms. Turn off electronics at least one hour before bed time. Refrain from drinking caffeine within four hours before bed time. 
  • Support healthy eating habits. As big events arise (i.e. end-of-year tests), make sure students have eaten a healthy breakfast. Drink at least 64 oz. of water a day.
  • Encourage students to finish strong and achieve goals. 
  • Help students stay organized. Use helpful apps and reminders for large events and projects.
  • Urge students to participate in end-of-the-year activities to have fun and socialize.
  • Talk with students about your summer plans and what they can expect for structure. Students, especially younger ones, thrive on schedules and predictability. 
  • Focus praise and encouragement on the hard work your student puts into their tasks rather than end results. 
  • Help students stay balanced. Provide opportunities for physical activity, positive social interactions, hobbies, and family time as well as academic and work time.
  • Keep your expectations clear and consistent.
  • Be willing and open to talk about worries and stress. Refrain from minimizing your child’s feelings. Provide a listening ear and positive supports to help move through the stressful time.
