Important Message From Our Superintendent
There has been a great deal of media coverage and social media activity about the Arizona Educators United #RedforEd initiative involving teachers and others engaged in activities to bring attention to the issue of low public education funding in Arizona.
Teachers and community members have joined their voices to this cause. You may have seen groups of staff assembling on public sidewalks near our schools and then walking into their schools to begin the day. The walk in gatherings have been before school and did not have an impact on the regular school day. We want to commend our teachers for the professional way they have handled themselves and for the respect they have shown our students and families.
Governor Ducey has proposed a plan that would provide teacher pay increases and help provide funding for District Additional Assistance (DAA). DAA provides monies for capital items such as buses, buildings, computers, textbooks, and classroom materials. The Arizona State Legislature will need to draft legislation and vote on the governor’s proposed budget before next year’s funding is assured.
According to social media posts and media reports, the Arizona Education Association and Arizona Educators United #RedforEd organizers have suggested a potential school walkout. We are working to find alternatives that will support our teachers, but avoid disrupting the school day for students.
We strongly encourage you to please read Superintendent Freeman's letter in its entirety.
AzMERIT testing begins in April, and we will be testing most of the month. Please be sure students arrive to school on time everyday, make sure they have a healthy breakfast, and that students get plenty of sleep. We know our Pumas are going to shine!
Sun Safety And Apparel Safety Tips
Choose lightweight, light-colored, and loose-fitting clothing. Sunburn affects your body's ability to cool itself and causes a loss of body fluids. It also causes pain and damages the skin. If you must go outdoors, protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and by putting on sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher (the most effective products say "broad spectrum" or "UVA/UVB protection" on their labels) 30 minutes prior to going out. Continue to reapply it according to the package directions.
