SACK MEALS: Please be advised that for no-school days, such as Fall Recess on Oct. 15-16, our schools will NOT be sending sack meals home with students. The free take-home meals will be sent home only on those Thursdays that precede independent-learning Fridays.
For the next two weeks, (this week is short due to Fall Break), our Second Step Social/Emotional lessons will center on being assertive. Being assertive involves using an assertive posture when we interact with others, (facing the other person, head up, shoulders back, calm/firm voice, respectful words). Communicating assertively is the best way to ask others for help. Assertiveness will help you be successful in a variety of social and academic situations.
If you would like to learn more about Second Step, or engage in some of the home activities with your child, we would encourage you to create a family account, by going to www.secondstep.org and entering an activation code. Activation codes are as follows:

Third Grade: SSP3 FAMI LY73
Fourth Grade: SSP4 FAMI LY74

If you have any other questions about Second Step, or would like to talk to the School Counselor for any other reason, please contact Mary Lynne Richardson at email@example.com.
Time in quarantine could be cut in half for Canyons students and employees who were wearing masks during the moments they were possibly exposed to COVID-19 while at school.
Under guidelines released by Utah government and education officials on Thursday, Oct. 8, quarantined students and employees who test negative for COVID-19 after the seventh day from their last exposure — and, importantly, only if they were wearing masks at the time of exposure — can return to in-person learning, activities, and work.
The previous length of the quarantine as mandated by health authorities was 14 days.
