Chris Laypath


Hello Vae View Elementary Families!

My name is Chris Laypath and this will be my second year as the Principal of Vae View and my 16th year as a principal for Davis School District!

I believe in empowering students to reach and reimagine their potential to make a positive difference at Vae View and in the world.  I want every student 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 "Vae View Mustangs are Champions"  I believe that we can all be a champion in life as we overcome obstacles and grow and progress along the educational path and the path through life.   

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

Viva Vae View!
