We are excited to start a new year with our Panther students! Whether you choose in-person, online, or parent-guided instruction, you are a part of the Peruvian Park family!
As students select the in-person learning option, they will see changes at our school to mitigate risks and promote safety. Please review our repopulating plan by clicking below.
Canyons District has streamlined the family-notification process when it has been determined through the contact-tracing process that a student may have been exposed at school by student or employee who has tested positive for COVID-19.
To ensure that families receive the notification, parents of children who will need to quarantine will receive an automated phone call and an email. Parents also will receive a text message if they have signed up for that service in Skyward. The process was put into place in recent weeks and has proven effective in immediately notifying parents of this important information.
The official information will come from the Canyons school nurses, who are at the forefront of the District’s COVID-19 response. Canyons District nurses work hand-in-hand with the Salt Lake County Health Department and other health authorities to confirm test results, conduct contact tracing, answer questions of parents, students and employees, and help track the District’s overall COVID-19 cases.
While many traditional celebrations that take place this time of year might look drastically different this season, the Canyons Education Foundation is planning an event that ticks all of the boxes: It’s fun, it’s for a good cause, and the entire community can participate.
The Canyons Education Foundation’s inaugural Virtual Fun Run kicks off Nov. 22-28, and provides an opportunity for participants to complete a 5K that is safe and will benefit members of the community through a fundraiser for Internet connectivity and computing devices for students in need.
“We know there are individuals who would love to help out within the District, so this is a way for employees and our own student families to be able to help other student families,” said Denise Haycock, Development Officer for the Canyons Education Foundation.

Time in quarantine could be cut in half for Canyons students and employees who were wearing masks during the moments they were possibly exposed to COVID-19 while at school.
Under guidelines released by Utah government and education officials on Thursday, Oct. 8, quarantined students and employees who test negative for COVID-19 after the seventh day from their last exposure — and, importantly, only if they were wearing masks at the time of exposure — can return to in-person learning, activities, and work.
The previous length of the quarantine as mandated by health authorities was 14 days.
Now there are more opportunities than ever for Canyons District students to become fluent in two languages.
Two Spanish Dual Language Immersion programs have been added to the mix of Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese programs already offered by the District, which should help meet growing demand for this popular educational opportunity.
The start of October signals the opening of the window to apply for CSD’s Dual Language Immersion Programs for the 2021-2022 school year. Parents and guardians can apply online anytime from Monday, Oct. 5 to Wednesday, Nov. 25.
In addition, families interested in learning about these programs are invited to a virtual Orientation Night on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 6:30-8 p.m. To join the orientation, click here and enter the meeting ID 861 2733 3185 and the passcode 201030.
