Canyons District's COVID-19 Action Plan, Updates | Read More >

Back to School • Register for the 2021-2022 School Year Starting Aug. 2

Summer may still be in full swing, but Canyons District schools are gearing up to welcome back students with familiar faces and enthusiastic high-five’s.

With the pandemic, we may still face some unknowns. But one thing remains certain: When classes resume, Canyons will be there for students.

Registration for the coming school year starts Monday, Aug. 2.

Have vacation plans for that week? Still weighing your back-to-school options? Not to worry. You can complete the registration process when it’s convenient for your family. Because registration is not first-come, first-served, you won’t need to worry about being the first to log in and register your child. Also, the time you register will not impact the teacher or course selection for your child.

Apply for Canyons Online, CSD’s Remote-Learning Option for Students of All Ages

While there’s still a few weeks left in the Summer Recess, it is also prime time to start making plans for your child’s learning when school starts in Canyons District on Monday, Aug. 16.

Armed with the lessons learned during the COVID-19 year when schools heavily relied on technology, CSD is launching Canyons Online, the program through which high-quality online classes will be provided to students ranging in age from kindergarten to the 12th grade.

This is a change from a previous announcement that stated Canyons Online offerings would begin at the third-grade level.  In response to requests from families who want their children to learn from home until a COVID-19 vaccine is approved for young children, CSD is now accepting Canyons Online applications for kindergarten, first- and second-grade students.

Also, some parents discovered during the pandemic that their young children thrived while at home, learning at their own pace.

Message From Our New Principal

Greetings Beetdigger Family, 

This is Dr. Bruce Eschler, and I am honored to be serving as the new principal of Jordan High School. I look forward to getting to know Jordan’s fantastic students, family, staff, and alumni, and to continuing the Beetdigger tradition of “honoring the past, embracing the present, and anticipating the future.”

By way of introduction, I’ll share a snapshot about myself. This coming school year will be my 17th as a full-time educator. I got my start teaching English, reading, and English as a Second Language to junior high students in the Murray School District. I’ve served as an assistant principal at the high school level for Canyons District, and worked at West High School, Upward Bound, and the University of Utah in various educational capacities. I received a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of Utah and a Ph.D. from Brigham Young University, which I guess makes me a Utes and Cougar fan. I’m married and have one human child and one canine child. We all love the outdoors, and the humans in the family are avid readers. 

The opportunity to be Jordan High’s principal is both exciting and humbling. I recognize that this school is more than a high school. It is a family with a long tradition. Being a Beetdigger is something special and taking on the primary leadership position for this school comes with great responsibility. Advocacy has always been the center of my work as an educator. I’m here today because teachers, mentors, and my own family advocated for me. And I pledge to be an advocate for every student at Jordan High.

I also look forward to the work we can do together, and to sharing the many great things happening at Jordan High. Next time you’re on campus, be sure to drop by and say hello. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, and know that my heart now “beets” for you and our Jordan family. 


Dr. Eschler
