Before we know it, however, Canyons District schools will hum with a back-to-school buzz — and yellow school buses will be a familiar sight in neighborhoods. Parents are encouraged to be prepared for the Monday, Aug. 19 first day of school for first- through 12th-grade students and the Wednesday, Aug. 22 start-day for kindergarten and preschool students by taking a minute to review 2019-2020 transportation plans for students who attend Canyons schools in Cottonwood Heights, Draper, Midvale, Sandy and the towns of Alta and…
