Ridgecrest Roar October 19

RIDGECREST ROAR       Oct. 18, 2020

Hello Ridgecrest families,

We are entering our ninth week of school and things are going so well.  This doesn’t happen without a dedicated community, staff, and students. I am grateful to work in such an amazing school.  Thank you!


FLU CLINIC – I’ve scheduled this clinic for the community.  It is this Thursday, October 22nd from 3:30 PM-5:30 PM.  Just come to the school, wear a mask, and stay lined up 6 feet apart.  CNS will bill all insurances they can.  For those 6 months of age through age 18 that do not have insurance the cost is $14 per shot.  Adults are $35.   If families cannot afford to pay, they should talk to the CNS clerks to make arrangements.  They will not turn anyone away.  Let me know if you have any other questions.


Change of Placements:

The window for submitting change requests is Sunday, Nov. 1 through Sunday, Nov. 8. Learning option changes will take effect with the start of the trimester on Monday, Nov. 23.  If you do not wish to move from in person to online, or online to in person then you do not need to do anything at this time.



Reflections Art Contest will look different this year, but it will be amazing! Students reflect on the theme” I Matter Because….” and create a work of art in one or more of these categories: Dance Choreography, Film, Literature, Music Composition, Visual Art 2D, Visual Art 3D. 

Parents/guardians will submit entries online thru the Utah PTA website with photos or videos of the child’s creation. The physical art will remain at home. 

The Video Link below will show you how to enter online.

Here is a link to the rules: 

The deadline is Wednesday, November 4th, 2020 (just after Halloween). Questions? Contact Angela Toone 801.916.2688,

Mask Up! Utah Revises School Quarantine Rules For Students, Employees Who Don Masks

Time in quarantine could be cut in half for Canyons students and employees who were wearing masks during the moments they were possibly exposed to COVID-19 while at school.  

Under guidelines released by Utah government and education officials on Thursday, Oct. 8, quarantined students and employees who test negative for COVID-19 after the seventh day from their last exposure — and, importantly, only if they were wearing masks at the time of exposure — can return to in-person learning, activities, and work.  

The previous length of the quarantine as mandated by health authorities was 14 days.
