Principal's Update

Dear Anasazi Families,

The Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) Governing Board met last night to review the results of the parent survey data and to discuss the next steps to begin to phase in on campus learning in our District. You can view the presentation with the survey results here and you can view a replay of the video of the discussion and vote here. The Board voted to authorize the Superintendent to continue providing the EDL model for those families who choose it through the end of the current semester (December 18, 2020) as well as to implement a phased-in "full return in person" model, for those families who choose it, resulting in a natural hybrid consistent with the ADHS metrics while the district is in "yellow." Students will return to campus in grade-level cohorts according to this schedule, provided health metrics permit:

• September 14-Special Education Special Programs and Pre-School

• September 21-K-2

• September 29-3-5

• October 5-FALL BREAK

• October 12--Middle School and High School

For more information, log on to our website any time at

Please follow the link below to view a video going over the Family Commitment Form:

Please complete and submit the Anasazi Parent/Guardian Final Commitment form to formalize your commitment. You can find it here:

The Selection Form completion window is open through Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.

As always I will provide more information as soon as possible.

Serving your children,

Ms. Jennifer Waldron

September IB Learner Attribute - PRINCIPLED

Big picture

IB in Action from Home

This month's IB Learner attribute focus is PRINCIPLED. At home involve your child in deciding on the rules for a game or activity and then ensure that they stick to the ones that have been decided upon.

  • Encourage your child to play games that involve teams.
  • Discuss with your child the qualities of a team player.
  • What sort of person would they want on their team?
  • When your child wins a game insist that he or she is a well- mannered winner. They might thank their opponent or shake hands with them if it’s appropriate. •
  • When playing a game, don’t change the rules to let your child win. Being a gracious loser is just as important as being a good winner

IT Help Desk

Starting Monday August 24, SUSD Help Desk phone lines will be open to assist parents and students with technology questions and issues Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. For assistance, call (480) 484-HELP (484-4357). The SUSD help desk is closed on weekends.
