Education Specialists serve as a guide and support throughout the education process. Families meet with their Educational Specialist regularly to discuss student as they progress toward their goals.  Please keep in mind that this communication with your ES is essential and a requirement for participation in this program. Please show that you value our program by having a truly effective conversation about the academic progress of your student with your Educational Specialist. Here is the Monthly Parent Touchpoints Schedule we will follow for these discussions.


At the beginning of the school year, you will create an individualized Student Education Plan (SEP) with your Education Specialist. Your student’s SEP will outline the curriculum your student will be using and your goals for the school year.

Common Dress

Canyon Grove Academy has a common dress code. The intent of the common dress code is to minimize distractions in the learning environment, promote a sense of community among students, and increase campus safety and security.   To keep it simple we have a Canyon Grove Academy T-shirt available for purchase.  Our fun T-shirt is worn by our students at all our school-sponsored activities such as Epic, Discovery, and field trips.  Ask your Educational Specialist for details.


Morning Meeting: 9:00 am Below you will see the traffic flow.  Please have students there on-time (which is between 8:45 – 9:00 am). Morning meeting is when your child’s Educational Specialist celebrates student accomplishments and recognizes birthdays. The ES will also build our culture of shared experiences by recognizing positive behavior and helping students take personal accountability for their own actions. We appreciate you bringing your student on time so they can be part of our awesome Canyon Grove DE team-building activities.


Recess: 12:00-12:20 pm Students play first and then eat so they do not rush through eating to get to their recess activities. Recess is held indoors. They can choose to play quiet games or join the larger-group, interactive fun!


Lunch: 12:20-12:40 pm Lunch is always a favorite time of the day for most students.

Home Lunch: Please send your child with a lunch from home that can be eaten within the given time frame. Also, send only water for them to drink and food that does not need to be reheated. Please let them know that they will be eating what you send with them in their OWN lunch.  🙂  There is no bartering lunch items.


Clean up: 3:00-3:15 pm

We are responsible to clean up the building from 3:00 – 3:15 pm. We all made the mess together, so we all get to clean it up together. Because of this, there is no pick up between 3:00 – 3:15, because we are all helping.  🙂 Thank you for your help with this.

Pick up: 3:15 pm

Please be there to pick up your child at 3:15. Most dance classes begin shortly after our Epic Day ends. It is important that we are all out of there on time. If there is an emergency and you will be late, please contact the ES.

Please ONLY be late if there is a true emergency.


  • Pick-up Authorization: If someone other than the parent/guardian is picking up, please notify the ES before clean-up begins.  Make sure they bring ID.
  • Attendance: If your student misses an Epic Day, please email your Educational Specialist to excuse their absence.

Discovery Day: Wednesday

12:00pm – 2:30pm

Discovery Day T-shirts can be purchased at the front office.  They are required for all students and volunteers attending Discovery Day activities.

Signups for Discovery Day are posted prior to each session.

The bus will leave from each pickup site at 11:20 AM and return around 3:00 PM unless otherwise stated in the sign-up. If you miss the bus you are responsible for your student’s transportation. DO NOT stop the bus if it is pulling out and you are late. If the bus is moving you have missed it and need to transport your students to the location. If they miss the bus one direction they can still ride the bus back.   More info

Any students who are not picked up within 15 minutes after the bus arrives will ride the bus back to the school and wait in the front office to be picked up there.

Patriot Park, 391 N. Saratoga Rd. Saratoga Springs. Meet the bus on the east end of the parking lot just off of 400 N between Saratoga Rd. and Redwood Road. The area marked in red is where the bus will park.
