Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!

While Canon School District is committed to creating educational experiences that will provide all children with a solid foundation for life-long learning, we provide this feature in a safe learning environment through our Make Your Day Citizenship Program.

Dear Black Canyon Parents and Community,

Here is our plan for the final weeks of school. Stay safe and we miss you all dearly!

Learning Time
Teachers will still be available 8am to 3pm (except half days-we still do training) on normal school calendar days.

Official Educational Paper Packets
Final packets will be given out this Monday, May 18th. Your child will have the rest of the year to finish packets that were required and to work with their teacher. The work for the weeks of the 25th through the end of the year is not mandatory and is a lot of review. Your teachers will still be touching base with you once a week.

Next Year
Canon plans on opening as normal on July 30, 2020. If new developments happen this summer and we have to change, we will let you know as soon as possible…but we’d like to go back to normal and we really miss our students and families.

Canon will clean all desk areas daily and places of high activity for students. Sanitizer stations will be in the office as soon as you walk in the door. The teachers have gutted and cleaned their rooms and taken out some items that may tend to hold germs.

Communication with Parents/Students:
Your teacher will be the point of contact with families for the educational program. Teachers shall be available daily to support student questions, grade, and complete individual online professional development and daily planning.
