From the Desk of Michelle Dynes, Principal


I am honored to be serving as Principal at Coyote Canyon Elementary School. I have worked in the Central School District since 1999, first as a 7th/8th grade Science Teacher at Ruth Musser Middle School, then as an Assistant Principal at both Ruth Musser Middle School and Coyote Canyon Elementary. Although I began my teaching career as an elementary school teacher in the Ontario-Montclair school district, I consider the Central School District my home. All three of my children have attended elementary and middle school from kindergarten through eighth grade in this amazing district. Having this range of experiences from being an employee and a parent in this district, helps me in this exciting position of working with students, staff, and families to make Coyote Canyon the best that it can be.


Coyote Canyon is committed to maintaining an exceptional academic environment that provides quality instruction to all of our students, which will ensure that they meet federal, state and local standards. The Coyote Canyon staff is committed in delivering the best practices and strategies to ensure academic success, and it shows in our exceptional benchmark and State test score results.  All staff members express pride in the safety and adequacy of the school facilities and encourage students to demonstrate this pride as well. School and classroom rules are communicated to students and their parents. Teachers, administrators, and support staff deal with violations on a fair and consistent basis.


Programs and activities, which promote safety, self-esteem, responsibility and social, emotional and academic growth are high priorities at Coyote Canyon. Our programs in place monitor policies, procedures, discipline and rewards for student conduct including:

  • School-wide discipline plan

  • Disaster plan and fire evacuation procedures

  • Anti-bullying policy

  • Intervention programs

  • Counseling program

  • Positive reward systems

  • Before, after school and lunch student supervision

  • Monthly safety inspections

  • Citizenship and special awards

Academics and safety are our top priority at Coyote Canyon Elementary.
