When a student is absent, a parent/guardian must call the school on or before the day of the absence to advise the school as to the reason for the absence. Our attendance office number is 602-896-5422. Messages may be left on the attendance line 24 hours a day. Only a parent or guardian can call and excuse an absence.
In an effort to minimize interruptions to the classrooms at the end of the day,students cannot be checked out any later than 3:00 p.m. on regular school days and 1:30 p.m. on early release days. This time is reserved for announcements, homework assignments, and end-of-the-day instructions.
Students may participate in volleyball, soccer, basketball, cross-country, cheer, wrestling, track and softball. Eligibility for competition will be determined by quarter report cards and midterm reports.
Uniforms are not required, however, students must adhere the dress code.
Breakfast and lunch are free for all students. Breakfast is served from 7:55 a.m. until 8:15 a.m. in classroom. Lunches are served daily in the cafeteria.
All parents and guardians have a ParentVUE account that can be used to access important information about thier student such as grades and attendance. Parents/guardians will need an activation key to log on for the first time. Bring a photo ID to the school office and ask for a ParentVUE Activation Key to get started.
