Hello Oakdale Families & Friends,
We’re fast approaching the end of our second term. This week you have an opportunity to reconsider your Students learning option, requests will be accepted this week only, Feb. 7-Feb. 14 . Those wanting to shift from in-person to one of two remote learning options available or from remote learning to in-person instruction will need to complete a change-request form by Feb. 14. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any late requests.
Change requests will be submitted using the same Skyward Family Access portal families used to register for school at the beginning of the year. Families simply log in to Skyward, click on the “online forms” button, select “Term 2 Change-Request Form,” and follow the prompts. Please watch this tutorial for more information, or call the Main Office should you need any assistance.
We are also excited to announce a new feature to our Oakdale Roadrunner Dash – Junior Dash. Junior Dash (see information below) is a way for us to highlight our students’ accomplishments, from CEOs, Sciences Fair awards to research projects/projects with 4th Grade University of Learning.
Teacher of the Year nominations closing date has changed to March 5. If you haven’t had a chance to fill out the nomination, please do so. Review the link with the fillable form that can be completed, or the TOY nomination can be picked up in the main office. Please return nominations to Deidre.Walbeck@canyonsdistrict.org or deliver them to the main office.

WHAT IS DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP? Digital media and technology are evolving at a rapid pace, bringing with it amazing opportunities and real risks for our children. On the positive side, young people use the Internet and mobile technologies to create, connect, explore and learn in ways never before imagined. Challenges from harmful behaviors, cyberbullying to digital cheating are surfacing in schools and homes across the country. Young people face ethical challenges daily without a roadmap to guide them. To combat this, conversations about digital practices need to begin in the home. To help with this, each month, we will provide resources to begin having these conversations with your children at home.

Parent-Teacher Conference Sign-Up
It is that time of year again! Please make sure to pick a time slot for Virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences. The window to sign-up is from February 10-19, 2021. Below are the directions on how to schedule an appointment:
Login to your Skyward Family Access
If you have more than 1 student in Canyons School District Schools, choose All Students
- Only one appointment can be scheduled per teacher per student.
- If guardians maintain separate households, they must log in separately to schedule individual conference times for their student.
- If you have more than one student, the system will allow you to schedule them at the same time with two different teachers; however, a warning will appear because this will double book you.
- On the left side click the Conferences tab
- Click All Conferences next to the student’s name you wish to schedule a conference for
- Choose the time you want and click Select next to that time (Status for that time slot must be open or select option will not appear)
