Ridgecrest Roar

RIDGECREST ROAR       May 3, 2020

Good evening Ridgecrest families,

Once again, I have a lot of information to share with you.  First, I want to thank all of the families that came to the Reverse Parade on Friday. It was so fun to see all of the students and parents.  I know the entire Ridgecrest staff was so excited to see the students.  Thank you for all the decorations and for going the extra mile to make the teachers feel special.  We had a wonderful teacher appreciation week and the parade was the perfect way to have it end.  An additional thanks to the PTA for the wonderful gift bags for each of the staff members, they went above and beyond to make everyone feel appreciated!  If you were not able to make the parade, we will be collecting Chromebooks on May 26, 27, and 28. Parents will be able to pick up supplies at that time as well.  More information to come on Chromebook pick up. 

 

Construction on new skylights starts on Monday at Ridgecrest.  We will be working remotely due to the power being turned off as well as trying to stay away from the dust and loud drilling sounds.  The phones will be forwarded to myself and Mrs. Hille’s homes. We will get back to you as soon as possible, so please leave a message if we do not answer.

 

We are still working on some plans for our 5th graders and how to help them feel special, have closure to the end of the year, or possibly a summer get together, as well as Kindergarten online registration. I will include those items in the Roar as soon as we have finalized plans.

Registering your Child for School During the COVID-19 School Dismissal    new-student-registration-insta.png 

 Are you looking to enroll a child in one of our schools — now, or for the coming year?

 Canyons School District has launched an online registration portal to assist families in registering new students during the COVID-19 pandemic so they can take advantage of the at-home instruction being provided throughout the “soft closure” of our schools. Traditionally, students who are new to Canyons have had to register in person so they can provide verifiable copies of their birth certificate along with other required documentation.

Now, to streamline the registration process, the District has created a way for families to scan and preliminarily submit those documents online. The online registrationhttps://www.canyonsdistrict.org/new-student   is available to all those registering in Canyons for the first time, whether they’ve recently relocated here and need to enroll in classes immediately, or they’re a toddler preparing for “big kid school” in the fall. 

“The registration process is not complete until approved by each school’s registrar. But this online tool will make it easier for families to start the process so new students don’t miss out on any instruction and we can quickly connect them with a teacher and instructional materials,” says Dr. Floyd Stensrud, CSD’s Director of Planning and Enrollment. 

To access the enrollment tool, click on this link: https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/new-student  and follow the prompts. 

If you have more than one child registering, you’ll need to complete an online form for each child. In addition to basic demographic information — home address, the child’s birth date, etc. — you will be asked to designate the school in which you plan to enroll your child. You can locate your boundary school at this link. As a reminder, enrollment in a non-boundary school is contingent upon approval of a school choice transfer permit.

Before logging in to the portal, it’s recommended that you have on hand a scanned copy of your child’s birth certificate and immunization records: https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/new-student/immunizations  and proof of residency, https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/images/Proof-of-Residency.pdf

 If you are unable to upload these documents at this time, or you are living without a fixed residence, the school will contact you to collect the paperwork needed to complete your registration.  You can also access them on the Canyons School District homepage.  https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/district-news/item/12475-registering-your-child-for-school-during-the-covid-19-school-dismissal

It is possible to start filling out the online form and save it for completion at a later time. But once you submit the form, you will have to work with your child’s school to make any changes.

If you don’t have access to a computer at home, contact the school in which you intend to enroll for assistance.

Students who are already enrolled in a Canyons school and will be returning to the District in the fall will complete online registration as they do normally. The online registration window typically opens in early August and is advertised in the summer. 

Questions? Please email communications@canyonsdistrict.org, contact your neighborhood school or call CSD’s Department of Planning and Enrollment, 801-826-5181.
