The 2020 Census is Coming — Make Sure You’re Counted

School lunches. Special education grants. Training for teachers and support for families in need. Census results, and the programs and resources tied to them, affect our students every day. A complete headcount of everyone living in the country, the census only comes around once every 10 years, and the time to be counted — and to make sure your community receives its fair share of federal funding for schools — is coming. This month, every person living in Utah will take part in the 2020 Census. It’s possible to respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail starting March 12. It takes only 10 minutes, the information is kept strictly confidential, and if you don’t have access to a computer at home, we can help. Join us for “We Count Week,” March 16-20, and come complete the census at one of four Canyons District-sponsored Open House events.

Fifth-grade students and their parents invited to maturation program


As a preventive measure, in alignment with recommendations by health authorities who are working to control the spread of COVID-19, we have postponed all fifth-grade Maturation Programs. We hope to be able to reschedule these events or arrange to videotape the presentations and share it with parents through a password-protected link. Once we’ve finalized our contingency plans, we’ll send an email with further instructions to all fifth-grade families.

It’s difficult to know who has more trepidation about discussing health and the maturation process, pre-teens or their parents. But while growing up can be hard, talking about it needn’t be. To help you rock “the talk,” Canyons School District has developed an informational maturation program  for fifth-grade students and their parents. Presentations conducted by the professional speaker Carrie Ann Kemp have been scheduled through the month of March. All parents are encouraged to attend these free events with their children, and to choose which date best fits their schedules, so that they can continue the discussion in their homes. Please follow this link for event locations and times.
