Early Out Fridays

Posted in General Info

Coming Next School Year: Early-Out Fridays

We will have a new schedule next school year! The Canyons Board of Education on March 17 approved a new schedule for all elementary schools in the district. The schedule brings back early-out Fridays and gives teachers uninterrupted collaboration and planning time so we can better meet student needs and prepare students for college and careers. This is something that our teachers have needed for quite some time. Trained specialists will teach students in areas such as arts and P.E. during teacher planning time.

To help in your planning, please note that early-out days will be on Fridays only. So, during short weeks that have a Friday holiday, we won’t have an early-out day. Also, the District is working to set start and end times for all elementary schools before school lets out for the summer. This information will be communicated to you when it becomes available.

For your background information: The schedule was recommended by a task force that included teachers from every elementary school in the district, including ours.  The task force has been studying, trouble-shooting, and taking feedback from colleagues since December to come up with a schedule to that better serves students and gives schools flexibility to plan teacher collaboration time appropriately.

If you have any questions, please call the front office or visit www.canyonsdistrict.org.
