Canyon Crest Elementary School

Canyon Crest Parents/Guardians, 

Please note the following weekly announcements. 

Visitor Management System

We are grateful for our visitor management system, which helps to keep our students safe.  Per district policy (see attached), we kindly request all visitors to present a valid government issued form of photo identification, including visitors who are checking their child out early or dropping something off. This will go into full effect starting November 1, 2023. We appreciate your support in ensuring the safety of our students.

If you are planning to help with classroom Halloween parties, we highly suggest that you scan your license and check in before the parade starts. We always have a greater volume of people scanning on that day so please plan out your time accordingly. 

Fall Break

Fall Break will be October 19 – 24.  School will resume for students on Wednesday, October 25.

Red Ribbon Week This Week!


Red Ribbon Week is a national awareness campaign in the United States that promotes drug prevention and education. During Red Ribbon Week, each day has a specific theme to encourage participation and raise awareness about the dangers of drug abuse. The themes are:

Monday, 10/16, Day 1: Wear Red – This day encourages participants to wear red clothing or accessories to symbolize their commitment to a drug-free life. Tuesday, 10/17, Day 2: Use Your Head, Don’t Do Drugs – Wear a hat today. This theme emphasizes the importance of making smart, informed decisions and not getting involved in drug use. Wednesday, 10/18, Day 3: Too Bright for Drugs – Wear Sunglasses today. This theme suggests that individuals should avoid drugs and focus on living vibrant, healthy lives instead.

Important Ski School Information

NO Refunds. NO makeup lessons.

This is an independent program and not a school sponsored event. 

There is an additional $50 bus fee that is NOT optional. This fee is paid directly to myself via Venmo, cash or check and I them in turn pay the charter company with one cashiers check for the total amount. 

Corporate passes CANNOT be used for ski school. Lift tickets ARE NOT included in the lesson price and must be purchased separately unless the participant has a season pass. 

You can either rent skis from Sundance, use your own skis or rent from somewhere in the community. Sundance rentals this year WILL include a helmet. 

Skiers must be at least 8 years old to participate & snowboarders must be at least 9 years old.

All students must have a completed and signed online release form from a parent/guardian. I will also have a separate waiver that must be completed. 

Participants will be released from school at 12:30pm on each day of the program. 

Parents must be made aware that there is a 1⁄2 hour of free skiing after the lesson without supervision of the Sundance instructors. Participants cannot ski alone. If they want to do one additional run after lessons have ended they must ski with a friend or other participant in the program. Please reach out if you have any additional questions!
