Canyons District's COVID-19 Action Plan, Updates | Read More >

Ready for ‘Big Kid’ School? • Time to get a jump on planning for kindergarten

The start of the 2021-2022 school year might seem like it’s light-years away, but when it comes to making arrangements for kindergarteners to attend school, the time to start planning is now. While students who are 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2021 won’t be heading to class until late next summer, there are several decisions parents and guardians will need to make before then — and it’s better to start sooner than later.

“Parents need to think about which option they want, the half-day option that we offer, or the Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program we offer as well,” said Canyons Teacher Specialist Leigh Ann Fisher. “This may determine the school their child attends, because if their boundary school isn’t offering the Supplemental program, then they need to think about, ‘Where am I willing to travel to take my child so that they have that option to have the Supplemental program as well?’”

Starting on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m., Canyons District will begin accepting online applications for its Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program for the 2021-2022 school year. Computers are available at Canyons schools for families who do not have Internet connectivity at home. The opt-in, tuition-based program is offered at schools based on community interest and available space in the building. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

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.

Important things to know

School Permits: Tuesday, Dec. 1 marks the start of the window for applying to attend a school other than your neighborhood school in 2021-2022. So-called School Choice transfers, or permits, are allowed under Utah law, and CSD families can apply for these transfers online through Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.

Lost and Found: Oakdale’s lost and found is located right inside the front doors across from the front office. It’s full of winter coats and sweatshirts. If your child is missing something please come in and check the lost and found. 

Parking Lot Pickup and Drop off Safety: When picking up your students, please park your car and come pick your students up at the designated crosswalks.  Please do not park your car and wave your students over.  Students are not crossing in the crosswalks, and drivers can not see students running in-between or behind cars.   Please take a moment to review our drop off/pick up procedures, Drop off and Pick up Procedures.

COVID-19 Updates 
The Health Department recommends 14 days is still the best way to protect people from exposure.  However, they recognize that alternatives can be provided for those who may not be able to quarantine for 14 days as they learn more about the virus.    

You may end quarantine: 

  • On day 10, without testing. If you don’t have symptoms of COVID-19, you can end quarantine 10 days after the last time you had close contact with the person who tested positive.
  • On day 7, with a negative test result. You must wait at least 7 days after your exposure to be tested. If your test is negative and you do not have any symptoms of COVID-19, you can end quarantine. If you end quarantine early using one of these alternatives, watch for symptoms until it has been 14 days after your exposure.
