IMPORTANT Parking Update:
***Important*** There is now access to the schools back parking lot off of 700 East. You may enter/exit through 700 East and that road will now continue through to 900 East. So, in essence, we have 2 entrances now. One off of 900 East and also one off of 700 East.
Picture day is coming up on September 14th & 15th during the student’s Math class. Students that do not have a math class may get their picture taken before school, during lunch, or during the APP period. Pictures are used for Hillcrest IDs and for the Hillcrest yearbook. Families may choose to purchase additional pictures. Picture purchasing packets are available in Math classes and the Attendance Office. If you have any questions please contact the main office at 801-826-6000.
Superintendent Listening Tour:
CSD Superintendent Welcomes Questions, Feedback at Districtwide Listening Tour
Have a question about Canyons School District? Suggestions, concerns or compliments?

Coming soon to a middle school near you: community members will have a chance to do just that as Dr. Robins travels the District for his inaugural Superintendent’s Listening Tour. The Town Hall-style events will run from 6:30-8 p.m. and take place at the following locations. Questions and comments can be submitted in advance or during the events at canyonsdistrict.org/voice. Just choose the “Superintendent’s Listening Tour” location from the dropdown list found on the submission form.

El superintendente de CSD da la bienvenida a preguntas y comentarios en la gira de escuchar a todos en el distrito
¿Tiene una pregunta sobre el Distrito Escolar Canyons? ¿Sugerencias, inquietudes o cumplidos?

Los eventos al estilo del Ayuntamiento se llevarán a cabo de 6: 30 a 8 p.m. y tomaran lugar en los siguientes lugares. Las preguntas y los comentarios se pueden enviar por adelantado o durante los eventos en canyonsdistrict.org/voice. Simplemente elija “Gira de audición del superintendente” de la lista desplegable que se encuentra en el formulario de envío.
