Free Meals for Children Extended through End of 2020-2021 School Year

Canyons School District is extending its free meal service through the end of the school year.

This means all students — whether they are learning in the classroom or remotely — can receive free lunch and breakfast through June, 30, 2021.

There’s no need to apply for the U.S. Department of Agriculture-authorized benefit, which was originally set to expire at the end of December. All students are automatically eligible.

Canyons District is committed to ensuring no child goes hungry and has sponsored free meals throughout the pandemic. The USDA waiver provides the flexibility and funding to ensure nutritious meals continue to reach all children at a time of rising food insecurity.

Schools will continue serving meals in their cafeterias per the staggered schedules they’ve established to promote physical distancing. Online and at-home learners may pick up meals at specific times and locations as designated by each school. Additionally, these families may pick up meals for any siblings who are 18 years of age or younger. Schools ask, however, that they preorder their meals so that the kitchens know how much food to prepare.

Brighton High Students Return to In-Person Learning on Dec. 2

Following a two-week pivot to virtual instruction for all students, Brighton High Bengals who are registered for in-person learning will return to campus on Wednesday, Dec. 2. 

After the return, Brighton High students will attend in-person Monday through Thursday with Fridays reserved for independent study and teacher preparation.

Parents and guardians were notified on Tuesday about the return to in-person learning at the Cottonwood Heights-area school via email and text message.  

The number of COVID-19 cases associated with the school now resets to zero on Canyons’ data dashboard. The reset is to have an accurate understanding of new cases occurring at the school after it resumes in-person learning. 

Custodians and other staff have been busy during Brighton’s two-week virtual learning schedule. Classrooms, hallways, gymnasiums and other gathering spaces were thoroughly cleaned in anticipation of the return of students and employees.   

Canyons District continue to ask the community to follow safety precautions. Please wear face coverings, wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, and observe physical distancing guidelines in public.
