Canyons School District Classes Dismissed, March 16-27

At the recommendation of Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and the Utah State Board of Education, Canyons School District is dismissing school for two weeks starting the morning of Monday, March 16. This means schools will not be in session from Monday, March 16 to Friday, March 27.

While the Canyons District Offices will be open to conduct the public’s business for the two-week dismissal period, until further notice, classes will be dismissed until Monday, March 30. If this date is extended for any reason, Canyons District will immediately communicate with parents.

During the state-requested dismissal of K-12 public schools, Canyons District elementary, middle, and high schools will be open to the public during regular school hours on Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17. During these two days, students may come to the school briefly to collect personal items or homework left behind at school.

During the two-week dismissal, select Canyons District schools will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. so that students can participate in the School Nutrition Program. Sack lunches will be available for any child under 18 years of age. The schools will be open to students to obtain the grab-and-go-meals.

In addition to the dismissal of classes, all District-related athletic competitions and practices, school activities, events, dances and performances are cancelled. Community Education classes also are cancelled. Please be assured that during the two-week dismissal, as a proactive measure, school custodians will complete a thorough cleaning of all Canyons District facilities with hospital-grade disinfectants.

Early next week, Canyons District will provide additional guidance to parents about the learning opportunities that will be provided during the two-week dismissal. Details about year-end tests and the accumulation of credits that count toward graduation also are forthcoming. If you have questions about Canyons District’s response to COVID-19-related issues, please refer to or Canyons District’s social media pages, which will be updated regularly.

If you have additional questions or comments, please send an email message to and a representative will be ready to help you. Again, we thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding as we work through the many issues associated with a districtwide dismissal of classes.
