From the Head of School...
Dear Summit School Community,
What an amazing first couple of days! It has been fantastic seeing our students and our families back on campus. We have welcomed eight new staff members and over 50 new students. We are also welcoming students and families who have been coming in to tour daily. Clearly, the excitement is real. Summit is an amazing place for an exceptional education.
Thank you for being a part of our Summit Community and thank you for all you do.

Referral Credits and IBE
I hope this message finds you enjoying your summer break and hopefully staying cool with these toasty temps rising. As we begin to plan for the upcoming school year, we figured it was a great time to remind you of a couple awesome programs that Summit offers.
Yes, we are still offering a $1,000.00 referral tuition credit for each new student (non-sibling of current student) who is referred to Summit for the 2022-23 school year. The credit will be applied to your FACTS account after 2 months. We greatly appreciate your referrals!
Also, if you or someone you know owns or is a decision-maker in an LLC or S-Corp, there are some new, beneficial tax changes (See message below from IBE).
Corporate Donation season is here and there have been some HUGE things happening at IBE. As you may have heard, our very generous S-Corporations could potentially receive a deduction on their Federal tax forms in addition to the State dollar-for-dollar tax credit.
Please check out the following link for more information.
Here is the link for the fillable IBE Corporate Tax Application. Complete it and return it to AZCorp@ibescholarships.org. We are here to walk every step of the approval and donation process with you. Please feel free to contact IBE with any questions you may have. 520.512.5438

Summit School Community Partnerships
Dear Community Member,
Summit School is pleased to announce that we are starting a community partner program with businesses in our local community. We know that connections in the community are invaluable to the success of our school and our local businesses.
We would like to invite you to become a Summit Community Partner. This partnership requires no donations or financial support. Instead, we ask for mutual participation. Here is how it works.
You agree to be a Summit Community Partner by posting our Summit School Community Partner flyer, poster, or our Summit School brochures in your business.

Summit School has an Emergency Response Plan that serves as a guide to help staff and safety partners respond swiftly should a crisis arise. In addition to this plan, our campus has a single point of entry system at the front office.
Guardians are assured that Summit’s safety and security planning and procedures follow the latest available protocols, and that all staff are trained and drilled to perform them in the event of an emergency.
Should an emergency occur while you are on campus, it is important that you are familiar with the following terms:
During a lockdown, all school interior and exterior doors are locked, and all students and staff are confined to a safe room. No entry or exit is permissible until an “all clear” signal is given. This takes place when there is a possible threat inside or outside of the school.
An evacuation may be necessary for the following situations: arson, fire, explosion, hazardous materials leak/spill, bomb threat, or damage to the building. In some cases of a dangerous person on campus, staff and students may be directed to evacuate campus if a safe evacuation path is available.
This refers to taking refuge in an area inside the school when there is not adequate time to evacuate the school or release students. For example, this procedure may be implemented inside for hazardous materials that have been released into the atmosphere.
