Last Day of School
Posted on 05/07/2018
The last day of school is May 18, 2018.

May 18th: Our closing bell ceremony will be at 8:30am.



**SCHOOL HOURS EXTENSION NOTICE**

Teachers and administrators were delighted to welcome back our students this past Friday. I was able to visit each school to meet students and teachers for the first time. Our teachers were overjoyed to be with their students again, and our children were eager to re-engage in learning. Schools are quickly adjusting schedules for important end-of-year events. Those revised dates will be communicated shortly.

We do not anticipate any changes to 8th grade promotion ceremonies or upcoming field trips.

The question on everyone’s mind is whether the school year will be extended. Although our schools were closed for six days, the loss of those instructional hours will not require extended school days at the end of our calendar to meet Arizona Department of Education requirements. However, we will need to extend all early release days to full school days until the end of year. This includes early release Wednesdays as well as the last day of school. All three of these days will be full school days. If needed, students may be signed out using the standard procedures.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding. We plan to thoroughly make the most out of the final days in the school year and enjoy every moment with your fabulous children.

All the best,

Lori Shough, Ed.D.

Superintendent
