Tuesday, February 18th, the Canyons School District Board of Education will be having a second reading regarding the proposal to consolidate Bell View and Edgemont elementary schools into one new school beginning in the 2022-23 school year. The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Canyons School District administration building located at 9361 South 300 East in Sandy. As a reminder, the proposal is to remain in our current building for the next two school years (the 2020-21 and 2021-22 years). The yet-to-be-named new school will be constructed on the Edgemont property and is scheduled to open in August 2022. Final approval on the proposal is expected to occur in April or May we will let you know the date and time well in advance of the meeting.
Raising children in the age of smartphones and social media brings new challenges and concerns for all families. That’s why we are inviting you to join Bell View PTA Tuesday, Feb 11 at 5:30pm to 7:00 in Bell View Elementary Media Center for our Be Internet Awesome Family Workshop, which promotes safer and more responsible use of online technology among children and families. Our next general meeting will be Mar 6 at 9:00am in the conference room. Other dates for meetings will be: Apr 3, and May 1.
To make up for the instructional time lost due to the weather-related cancellation of school on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, a make-up day will be held on Presidents Day.
All Canyons District schools will now hold school on Feb. 17 on their usual Monday schedules. Buses also will be operating that day.
The Presidents Day holiday was previously set aside by the District’s Calendar Committee as the designated make-up day for emergency school closures for the 2019-2020 school year. Under Utah law, public schools must conduct school for at least 990 instructional hours over a minimum of 180 days each academic year, and recover any days lost due to inclement weather. Districts are expected to build a recovery day into their calendars so as to provide families and employees advance notice of the possible need and timing for a make-up day.
