Free Social and Emotional Wellness Screenings

We’re nearly one full lap around the calendar since the start of the pandemic, and with vaccinations picking up and case counts falling, the finish line is in sight.

We all look forward to this marathon of a sprint being over. But, as any long-distance athlete can attest, when the intensity and endorphins fade, what’s left are the emotions from the trauma and stress you’ve endured.

“We’ve been on this natural high, and now we’re having to process our thoughts and feelings. In these types of experiences, it’s not uncommon to feel a little let down, lost, and even anxious or depressed,” explains Genny Poll, a social and emotional specialist at Canyons District. “And while this can be a little overwhelming, our schools have trained experts and resources to help.”

In the coming weeks, to help our school communities cope with pandemic fatigue and the prospects of a post-pandemic slump, CSD’s licensed counselors are sponsoring free in-person and virtual wellness screenings and consultations for students, ages 10-18. The meetings are for 30 minutes and scheduled from 4 to 8 p.m. by appointment only.

Space is limited, and interested participants are asked to register for each event separately (see registration links below). Upon registering, families will be asked to complete a screening tool. During the consultations, licensed professionals will discuss available community resources to meet individual student needs.

Mental Health Screening Nights, 4 – 8 p.m.

Looking to Change Learning Options? Requests Accepted through March 10

With COVID-19 cases on the decline in Utah and throughout the country, we know some

of our remote students are considering returning to in-person instruction.

Now, through March 10, is the time for middle school families to submit those requests. Those wanting to shift from in-person to one of two remote learning options available, or from remote learning to in-person instruction, will need to complete a change-request form by Wednesday, March 10. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any late requests.

Learning option changes will take effect with the start of the fourth quarter on Monday, March 22. No action is required of families who wish to stay with their chosen path.

Throughout the pandemic, we have worked to provide families with in-person and remote

learning options so they can choose what works best for them given their educational needs and health considerations. This third change-request period is consistent with that commitment.

The three learning options available are the same as described at the beginning of the year: In-Person Instruction; Online Instruction; or Parent-Guided, District-Supported At Home Instruction. An explanation of those options can be found at canyonsdistrict.org.

An email with detailed instructions for submitting change requests is forthcoming from the school. Questions? Please contact our school’s Main Office.
