Navigator Families,

Can you believe we are halfway through the school year?! I just wanted to reach out and communicate a few items with you.

First, we are so excited to welcome Scott Fronk as an administrative intern beginning February 1st. Some may know Scott already as a special education coordinator and some may get to know him through school communication and IEP team meetings moving forward.

Next, we are still significantly short staffed in several of our programs. Many of our openings have not had any applicants. If you know of anyone looking for work that you think might be a good fit, please send them our way! Directing them to the school website canyonview.wsd.net can give information on starting pay and job listings. Building consistent subs is also extremely helpful–so if a flexible schedule is needed that is do-able as well! Winter illness coupled with staff shortages have made some days of school pretty tricky.

Finally, with the need to be flexible some days with covering staffing needs it would be VERY helpful if teachers could know of student absences the night before (if preplanned appointment or ongoing illness) or as early as possible the morning of. This can help curb some of the teacher stress related to scrambling for coverage for a student who is not going to attend that day.

Thank you for entrusting us with the precious gift of your students’ education–it is truly a privilege to spend the days with them! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Juliana Woodbury

Canyon View Families,

I hope this letter finds you well and that you have had the ability to mentally/emotionally/physically untangle from the past year.  This school year we are going to step out of the shadow of the past few school years and navigate for the future.

As we are looking forward to the 2022-2023 school year, there are going to be a couple of things that are immediate priorities as we kick off the school year.  The first is building safety.  I have worked this summer with Rod (our fabulous custodian) and the district to assess continued improvements for safety.  This will include additional cameras and electronic door locks.  Doors will not be able to be unlocked/propped open for building safety.  Teachers and paras, it will be critical to support building safety by how we teach the students to access things in the building and move about.  Parents will also need to be aware that they will need to enter through the main office and follow visitor procedures.  The second immediate priority is staffing programs. We currently have multiple open positions.  Please network, connect, and share our openings.  I firmly believe Canyon View is SUCH A GREAT PLACE TO WORK! Please share with others how great it is and encourage people to check it out.   

Last year our mantra was DETERMINE YOUR DIRECTION with a focus on how we can choose our course.  Earlier this calendar year I heard a speaker talk about teaching for the future and not the past.  Our statement this year will be LEARN FOR THE FUTURE.  As part of that learning we collectively, as a navigator community, are going to also consider teaching, connecting, behaving, planning, envisioning, creating, growing, and being purposeful in our future mindset.
