Our parking/drop off areas have become more unsafe with the winter weather. I, too, have been reminded of where to park. To make our parking areas run more smoothly, we will be starting a new program called “Tiger Tickets.”
Blue Tiger Tickets will be our way of thanking you for following the safety procedures and for keeping our students safe during drop off and pick up times. Example: If a driver pulls forward to drop off students in the north lot drop off zone and remains in/with the car and leaves promptly, the driver may receive a blue Tiger Ticket for following the safety rules in the parking area.
Red Tiger Tickets will be our way of reminding you to follow safety rules and procedures. Example: If a driver parks in the drop off area and leaves the automobile, the driver may receive a red “Tiger Ticket,” reminding the driver to not park in the drop off lane.
Tiger Ticket distribution will begin later this month.
Because 2020 is a Census year, we are asking for your participation. The U.S. Constitution requires the federal government to count everyone living in the country every 10 years. The tally must include people of all ages, races and ethnic groups, all citizens and non-citizens. Simply put, it is a headcount of everyone in the United States where they live and sleep most of the time, even if the living arrangement is temporary or the parents of the child do not live there.
Because the census directly impacts funding for your children’s and grandchildren’s schools.
The population count impacts federal funding for special education, classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, school lunch assistance, and more. Last year alone, Canyons District received $16.7 million in federal Title I, school lunch, and special education funding.
Participating in the census is your civic duty and good for the community.
As always, my door is open. Come see me!
