Provo City School District

Canyon Crest Elementary School

Canyon Crest Parents/Guardians,

Please note the following announcements.

1. New Security Fencing for the School

To ensure student and staff safety, Provo School District has installed permanent, locked security fencing that will access the back playground and field areas at Canyon Crest.  This area will remain locked 7 days a week.  Authorized exceptions will be made through the school or school district. This may involve an adjustment for some families, but we are very excited to finally have our perimeters more secure and to make our school a safer place.  This follows the pattern for all schools in the district.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

2. RISE Testing

We want to celebrate the learning that has taken place this year. Our students have been making great strides. We will be showing off all of that learning in the next few weeks with RISE Testing. RISE testing has begun. Students 3 – 6 grade will test Tuesday through Friday from April 11th until May 12th. We ask that you make sure your student(s) gets a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast. Testing will be every morning from 9am until 11am. Please make sure your students are on time and ready to test. We also ask that you try not to check your students out during testing.

The schedule for this week is below.
