  • Please check Skyward to view the student fees you may still owe. You can do this by logging in to Skyward under Family Access and then clicking on Student Fees. This will show you all of the fees that have been charged to your student’s account as well as payments you have made. You will also see refunds from spring sports participation, 3rd trimester class fees, etc. posted as credits. Seniors will receive a diploma cover on May 28th during the graduation walk-through, but WILL NOT receive their actual diploma in hand until ALL school fees are paid in full. Payments can made through your student’s Skyward – Student Fees tab or in the Main Office. Please call (801) 826-5800 if you have any questions about your student’s account.
    Refund checks will be issued next week after we have conducted textbook/Chromebook returns this week.

If you haven’t paid, please do so as soon as possible. You can pay with a credit card online through Skyward or by check in the Main Office.

  •  Novel Coronavirus: Steps We’re Taking to Keep Schools Healthy As you follow news of COVID-19, otherwise known as novel coronavirus, you’re likely to have questions about how it may impact schools. Please know we take the safety and health of students and employees seriously. The District is always taking steps to clean schools and prevent the spread of disease, and is continuing discussions about how to respond if there is an outbreak of COVID-19 in the area. Information about our prevention and planning efforts, and what families can do to help, can be found on Canyons District’s homepage.

Yearbooks will be here soon! However, we do not know exactly when. One of the main yearbook publishing factories has been closed in California as a result of Covid-19. Jostens is trying to get all of the yearbook orders completed as soon as possible using other printing locations. As soon as we get a firm date for the yearbook arrival, we will send something home. We are currently hoping to receive them the week of May 29th , but that is subject to change.
Jostens is developing a virtual signing platform where students can share their code with classmates and sign each other’s yearbooks. Once we receive this information, we will send it out and students can begin this activity. After the student has received all of their signatures, they will be able to print the pages of signatures and insert them into the yearbook.

  • The Advanced Placement (AP) program has made an announcement to address questions relating to the 2020 AP exam administration. The full details of the update can be found on the AP Central Coronavirus Updates page.
