Hey, Canyons District parents!  Did your student miss the chance to get “the jab” at the COVID-19 Student Vaccination Clinic scheduled at their school this week? 

You have one last chance to register for your child to receive the vaccine at a CSD school. 

The District’s final first-dose clinic for age-eligible students will be 8-10:30 a.m. on Friday, April 30 at Jordan High, 95 Beetdigger Blvd.

It’s school library month! Check out these late-fee-free facts about Canyons District libraries.

Do you know how many libraries are located within the Canyons School District? Do you know how many items — books, textbooks, resources, equipment and other materials — are in those libraries? And how about this one: Without the help of your favorite search engine, name the author who said, “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”

Would it help if we gave a hint that the author was from Argentina?

If you answered one or more of those questions in the affirmative, congrats! You’re either a certified librarian or a certifiable bookworm. You’re probably even aware that April is School Library Month.

If you scratched your head and couldn’t answer the questions, don’t worry. Most of the rest of us couldn’t, either. But you’re in a good place — even better if you’re reading this from a library — to find answers to those questions and a several other interesting tidbits about libraries.

CSD, Health Department Team Up To Provide ‘The Jab’ at High Schools

Plans to provide “the jab”  to age-eligible students who have parent permission to participate in a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at a Canyons District high school are moving along at a rapid clip.

The clinics, held in partnership with the Salt Lake County Health Department, have been scheduled for various times this week.

Parents and guardians who responded “Yes” to a recent survey that gauged interest in reserving the two doses of the Pfizer vaccine have been sent instructions to register for the clinics.  This information was sent to the email address for the primary-parent contact of the student.

If you responded affirmatively to the survey but did not receive information about how to register, please call the CSD IT Help Desk at 801-826-5544.

Registration for the clinics can be done online, by telephone, or with hard-copy forms.

Registration must be done in advance of the clinics. In addition, a signed, hard copy of the permission form must be provided to the school before 16- and 17-year-old students can receive their vaccination.  This must be provided at the time of the vaccination clinic.
