Weekly Calendar: August 30- September 3

LOCKERS: If your child wants a locker, we are going to open them up by request this week.  August 31 through September 3. We will have locker request forms in the main office for your child to come fill out. They will turn the form back in to the main office and we will assign them a locker. If your child requests a locker, they will be able to access them before school, at the beginning and end of lunch, and at the end of the day. They will not be allowed to access them during the remainder of the day to help with congregation in the hallways and help students get to class on time

CROSS COUNTRY: It’s time for cross country to begin. Mr. Young will be coaching cross country this year. If you are interested in finding out more about cross country talk to Mr. Young for details.

Free WiFi • Canyons Connects Families with Internet Access

Try imagining life without computers. Impossible, right? Technology has changed how we consume news and entertainment, make travel plans, stay in touch with our friends, shop, and even learn. 

Yet, a surprising number of Canyons District students — 10 to 15 percent — have no access to a computer or reliable Internet at home. 

As part of ongoing efforts to bridge the digital divide for students, Canyons is again partnering with the Comcast Corporation to cover monthly Internet connection costs for families in need. The program, coupled with investments to build Canyons’ stockpile of computing devices, aims to ensure all students — those learning online and inside the classroom — are equipped to succeed.

Applying for free WiFi through Comcast Essentials is easy. Here’s how:

  • Call your child’s school and ask for the person over Internet Essentials.
  • If you qualify for the program, the school will provide you with a sign-up code.
  • Call 844-963-0178 and provide Comcast with your sign-up code. You will also be asked to provide your home address and to choose if you want the WiFi equipment shipped to you, installed by a technician, or held for pickup at a local Xfinity location. 
  • The Internet subscription is valid through June 15, 2022.

Not all home addresses are eligible for Comcast connectivity. Our offer of subsidized WiFi is only available within Comcast’s service area.

Over the next few weeks, Dr. Robins will host five interactive community events to introduce himself, inform patrons about the state of the District, discuss Canyons’ COVID-19 response and recovery plans to support student learning and wellness, and invite community input as CSD undertakes a strategic planning process to review and enhance its mission and vision.
