Celebrating 10 Years
1997-2007


Computer Use

Computers at CVHS are for student and faculty use in the realm of learning and instruction.  This includes computer hardware, software, local area network, wide-area network and Internet.  Computer use is a privilege and not a right.  Misuse of any computers, in any way, will result in the loss of all computer-use privileges by the offender for the remainder of the school year.  In addition, any act that violates the UTAH CRIMES ACT will be reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency.  Students will be required to sign an "Acceptable Use Policy" when registering at CVHS.  This form will be kept on file in the Media Center for one year.  This policy needs to be reviewed and signed yearly by student and parent/guardian.

Misuse of computers includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Display or creation of obscene or pornographic materials

  • Recreational game playing

  • Violation of copyright laws (including duplicating any software to avoid purchase)

  • Access of private records

  • Misuse of passwords and/or other security devices or software

  • Theft/ vandalism

Cell Phone Policy

One of the problems we are facing today is the use of cell phones and other electronic devices during school time.  Students are receiving calls and text messages while they should be paying attention to the teacher.  When the cell phone is used during school, it is a disruption to the educational process. 

Cell Phones and other electronic devices must not be on during school hours, with the exception of the lunch period.  If a student is caught using an electronic device during school hours, it will be taken away and given to the administration. Students will be allowed to get the phone at the end of school on Friday afternoon after visiting with the administration unless, it is taken away again duringthe year, parents will be called and the phone will be given to them after a conference with administration. If taken away on Fridays, they will not be returned until Monday after school.

Camera phones will not be used.  If a student is found to be using the phone in a way that could be considered invading others' privacy, they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Our job is to educate, and everyone has the right to a distraction-free education.

Food and Drink Policy

In order to maintain a clean and orderly learning environment, food and drink will be permitted ONLY in the commons/cafeteria unless administrative approval is given.  Please dispose of all food wrappers, cups, and cans properly.

The student body officers and the administration invite you to help keep the campus grounds and buildings clean and in good repair.

Visitor Policy

All visitors, including parents/guardians, are always welcome.  They must check in at the main office for clearance before going to other areas of the building.  Student-aged friends/visitors will not be allowed at Canyon View High School during school hours to attend classes with CVHS students.  Pre-arranged exchange groups may be allowed with administrative prior approval.  Trespassers may be charged with trespassing. Visitors must park in designated visitor parking in the front of the school.

Posting of Notices

Notices, posters, signs, and banners must be approved before posting. The Student Government and the Student Government Advisor must approve club and class notices. The Iron County School District Administration must approve non-school notices. Notices are to be placed on metal strips only, unless special arrangements are made (i.e. elections, homecoming, special game day banners). No persoanl notices are to be posted (i.e. happy birthday, request or answer for dates, etc.). No notices are to be posted in the parking lot, on cars, or about the campus. Care should be taken to ensure all notices are neat, spelled correctly, with no offensive language or belitting innuendoes to anyone. The Canyon View Administration must approve use of school supplies to create notices, posters, signs, banners, etc.

  • Along Curbs--Bus Zones are marked by yellow.

Students must park in the following designated areas only:

  • B-Section--Designated spots given to students that have purchased a parking spot for the year and have been assigned that specific "B" spot. For example, the parking spot "B028" is reserved for the person that has paid for and reserved that spot. The Parking Permit number must match the number on the parking spot.

Emergency Plan Policy

The purpose of the CVHS Emergency Plan is to provide information and direction for all persons with emergency response tasks.  This includes administrative staff, teaching and support staff, students, and parents.

It is the administration's responsibility to provide for the safety and protection of faculty, staff, and students during an emergency.  This will be accomplished by having a functioning emergency preparedness plan, by providing training to faculty, staff, and students in the operation of the emergency plan in their assigned responsibilities, and by implementing, directing, and coordinating operation procedures when they are necessary.

Teachers and students will be trained in their responsibilities and proper response to various kinds of emergencies.
