Afternoon Private Vehicle Pick-Up Changes

Thank you for helping us have a wonderful first day in our new building.  Your children were amazing today!  They adapted quickly and learned many new procedures with smiles on their faces.  

Our morning drop-off went very well.  We appreciate your preparation and patience with our buses and drop-off in the morning.  Cars moved through the line very smoothly.  Our morning drop-off procedure will remain the same with private vehicles staying to the left and using the car lane as we did today.  We need to make some adjustments to our afternoon pick-up procedure.  Please see this document for changes to the afternoon pick-up procedure for private vehicles.

Dig it! Peruvian Park Students Help Break Ground for New and Improved School

It isn’t unusual for kids to play in dirt, which is perhaps why Peruvian Park students jumped at the chance to toil in the soil as special guests of a groundbreaking to mark the start of the construction of their new school.

These prideful Panthers joined Canyons District administrators and local elected officials with golden shovels in their hands and commemorative hard hats on their heads to turn some celebratory dirt at the Tuesday, March 30, 2021 event. The evening signifies the transition from the careful planning stage to the actual construction of a beautiful, tech-friendly, two-story educational facility.

Bus Route Information for Move to Crescent View Building

We will be moving to the Crescent View building (11150 S 300 E) after spring break.  Canyons School District will provide bus transportation for all students. This includes those living inside school boundaries as well as those who live outside of Peruvian Park boundaries.  Please click below to find bus schedules and routes for your students.

We would like to thank the CSD Transportation Department for creating these schedules early, so families have time to plan and make arrangements for daycare before our move. Specific bus numbers will be assigned at a later date.  

Kindergarten students will also be offered bus transportation.  Please click below for additional information.

It’s school library month! Check out these late-fee-free facts about Canyons District libraries.

Do you know how many libraries are located within the Canyons School District? Do you know how many items — books, textbooks, resources, equipment and other materials — are in those libraries? And how about this one: Without the help of your favorite search engine, name the author who said, “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”

Would it help if we gave a hint that the author was from Argentina?

If you answered one or more of those questions in the affirmative, congrats! You’re either a certified librarian or a certifiable bookworm. You’re probably even aware that April is School Library Month.

If you scratched your head and couldn’t answer the questions, don’t worry. Most of the rest of us couldn’t, either. But you’re in a good place — even better if you’re reading this from a library — to find answers to those questions and a several other interesting tidbits about libraries.
