Hello Vae View Elementary Families!

I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Vae View and to join this fantastic school community!

My name is Chris Laypath and I have been an elementary school principal for 15 years.  I have previously been the principal at Taylor and Clinton Elementary.  This will be my 20th year working in Davis School District.  I am passionate about helping other recognize, realize, and reimagine their potential.  My mission is for all students to be and feel successful. 

I am married and have two wonderful children who have attended Central Davis Junior High and Layton High School.    I have lived in Layton for almost 20 year and love this city and community.  I love to travel and have a goal to visit all 50 states.  I also love food,  the Utah Jazz, and the Utah Utes.

Our school theme this year is “EPIC” as in this school year is going to be epic!  Epic stands for Elevating, School Pride, Insightful, Connections.  We will be focusing on all those things this year. 

I am truly honored to be at Vae View this year and to be a part of all the fabulous things happening at this school.

Here’s to an “Epic” 2020-2021 school year
