  • General Emergency Response Wording for Handbooks/Websites for Parents

    Emergency Response Situations
    The goal of this section is to give parents/guardians a general idea of the schools response in an emergency situation.  We hope this gives our student guardians information that helps them know what would be going on at their child's school during an emergency response and what to expect when the response is over.  Click here for information.

  • Parent Picking Up Student    TRANSPORTATION CHANGES

    All transportation changes need to be called in by 1:30pm for regular release days and 11:00am for early release days.  This will insure your child gets the message.  

     Students Arriving at School   STUDENT ARRIVAL
    Students are not allowed on campus before 7:45.  There is no supervision before this time.  If they arrive before 7:55, students will need to wait in the cafeteria.  

    All students and visitors should enter the school using the south gate to the playground when arriving before 8:10.  Students are not allowed to come through the office before the gate closes at 8:15.  

    All visitors will be stopped and screened before going back to the classrooms.  All lunches, snacks, shoes, and other items will be left in the office for your student to pick up.  This will avoid disruptions in the classroom during their teaching time.  If you would like to make an appointment ahead of time, you could do so with the teacher.  

               Thank you for your support.

Arizona Tax Credit Donations

  • field trip  Arizona tax law allows married couples filing jointly to take up to $400 in tax credit or $200 for singles   if they donate to extracurricular activities. This tax credit is available to all taxpayers, even if they don’t have   children in school. Contributions are donated directly to the school, not to the state or even to the district.   Though contributions to public schools have always been tax deductible, a tax credit is subtracted from the   amount of taxes you owe. A tax credit is a full refund of your money. You can choose what school/teacher or  an extracurricular program you would like to go to. Teachers use this money to pay for class field trips.
