Canyon School Weekly Memo
October 15, 2021
"The Canyon School Community will nurture caring, respectful citizens who embrace lifelong learning."
Second Week of October - This was a quick four-day week at Canyon. Most of our students took part in Picture Day on Wednesday - any students who weren't able to take part will be able to have their photo taken on Retake Day (Tuesday, Nov. 16). Throughout the school year we practice a variety of emergency and safety drills- over the coming weeks we will be practicing a few different kinds of safety drills - click here for more information about that.
Near Misses and Crosswalk Safety - The area around our school is very congested before and after school. We ask that all students and staff use the actual crosswalk area, located at the west end of the west end of Victoria Crescent. Click here for more information.
