November 2019 Principal Message

Posted in Principal's Message

Hello Edgemont Families,

School safety has always been a topic of discussion — and action — in the Canyons School District. Some measures are obvious, such as security cameras, emergency preparedness drills that we practice throughout the year and vestibules that require visitors to check-in at the Main Office before entering schools. But much of what we do is invisible. From the Internet filters we use to safeguard students from accessing inappropriate online content to the consistent rules and expectations we enforce to keep our classrooms free from bullying, harassment and discrimination, Canyons District is building safe schools from the inside out. 

Join us on this mission to Think Safe toward maintaining schools that are welcoming, secure, and prepared. Below is Edgemont’s Safety Drill schedule.  All drills are posted on our website (edgemont.canyonsdistrict.org) and on our marquee one week prior to the scheduled drill.
