DRAGON DELIVERY                                                                                           January 10, 2021

From Principal Christy Waddell

COVID:  We have 4 confirmed cases of students with Covid this week.   We do seem to have many who are staying home on quarantine because of a parent that tested positive.  Remember, if your child needs to stay home, email the teacher to find out what work they can do so they won’t get behind.

KINDERGARTEN: We need to know everyone in our boundaries that will be coming to kindergarten.  Please fill out this form and give it to the office. Kindergarten.docx

SUPPLEMENTAL KINDERGARTEN: We are offering this again. January 20ththe window will open for you to apply.  This is first come/first serve so if you are interested, please sign up as soon as you can. Here is more information:  https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/general-news/ready-for-big-kid-school-time-to-get-a-jump-on-planning-for-kindergarten/

FRIDAY BOXED LUNCHES/BREAKFASTS:  These will continue throughout the rest of the school year but will only be handed out on Thursday when Friday is a regular school day. Friday January 15 was originally scheduled as a teacher work day so students were not going to attend school. This means no boxed lunch for this Thursday will be handed out.

FREE LUNCHES: This will be through the rest of the school year.

PTA INFORMATION: January 2021 Spirit Night: Wednesday 1/13

Come support Draper Elementary School and Pier 49 Pizza on Wednesday 1/13/2021 from 11:00am to 8:00pm.

Ready for ‘Big Kid’ School? • Time to get a jump on planning for kindergarten

The start of the 2021-2022 school year might seem like it’s light-years away, but when it comes to making arrangements for kindergarteners to attend school, the time to start planning is now. While students who are 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2021 won’t be heading to class until late next summer, there are several decisions parents and guardians will need to make before then — and it’s better to start sooner than later.

“Parents need to think about which option they want, the half-day option that we offer, or the Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program we offer as well,” said Canyons Teacher Specialist Leigh Ann Fisher. “This may determine the school their child attends, because if their boundary school isn’t offering the Supplemental program, then they need to think about, ‘Where am I willing to travel to take my child so that they have that option to have the Supplemental program as well?’”

Starting on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m., Canyons District will begin accepting online applications for its Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program for the 2021-2022 school year. Computers are available at Canyons schools for families who do not have Internet connectivity at home. The opt-in, tuition-based program is offered at schools based on community interest and available space in the building. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Free Meals for Children Extended through End of 2020-2021 School Year

Canyons School District is extending its free meal service through the end of the school year.

This means all students — whether they are learning in the classroom or remotely — can receive free lunch and breakfast through June, 30, 2021.

There’s no need to apply for the U.S. Department of Agriculture-authorized benefit, which was originally set to expire at the end of December. All students are automatically eligible.

Canyons District is committed to ensuring no child goes hungry and has sponsored free meals throughout the pandemic. The USDA waiver provides the flexibility and funding to ensure nutritious meals continue to reach all children at a time of rising food insecurity.

Schools will continue serving meals in their cafeterias per the staggered schedules they’ve established to promote physical distancing. Online and at-home learners may pick up meals at specific times and locations as designated by each school. Additionally, these families may pick up meals for any siblings who are 18 years of age or younger. Schools ask, however, that they preorder their meals so that the kitchens know how much food to prepare.
