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

RIDGECREST ROAR       Nov. 15, 2020

Hello Ridgecrest families,

With the arrival of winter, families face new challenges in attending school. Please help your child to remember to wear a coat, have appropriate winter wear, and wear or bring shoes that can go out in the snow.  As you drive to school, please make sure you plan for extra travel time through the winter conditions.  Our drop off and pick up are busier during snow days so please plan accordingly.  We would like to ask that your child is ready to get out of the car within a 5 second window.  This will greatly decrease the back up in the drop off lane.  Making sure backpacks are ready to go as well as giving hugs and kisses before you get in the car are great ways to decrease time at the drop off.  Your help in this is greatly appreciated!


Our food drive is going great!  Thank you for your generosity!  Thursday is the last day of food drive. We plan to disperse the food on Friday. If your family would to receive support from the food drive, please contact me.


The majority of COVID situations in our district are from social exposures.  This might be from get-togethers with friends, colleagues and family.   For this reason, the governor’s order directs Utahns to not socially gather with anyone from outside their immediate household.  Please practice the following precautions:

  • Wear a face mask anytime you are around people with whom you don’t live.
  • Maintain physical distance from those who aren’t in your household.
  • Practice good hand-washing hygiene (use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if you don’t have access to soap and water).
  • Stay home when you: are sick, have symptoms of COVID, have tested positive for COVID, or have been placed on quarantine.
