Emergency Contacts & Online Registration
If it is necessary for another adult to check out your student, you must give permission by sending a note or email to the school office or ensure that person's name is listed on the child's emergency card.
Parent Pickup: Dashboard Sign
In order to assist with the traffic flow of Parent Pickup in the afternoon, it is highly encouraged to create a sign for your dashboard/window. Please write or type your child’s last name, first name, & grade level. If you have multiple children, write your last name, each child’s name & grade level underneath. Write or type in BIG BOLD letters so the staff on duty can read the names easily.
Your child may not be in school & will be sent home by the Health Assistant. Below are examples of condition(s) that require students to remain at home:
- Fever of 100.4 or Higher. A child must be fever-free for 24 hours (without fever reducing medication) before returning to school.
- Persistent Cough
- Sore Throat with Fever &/or White Spots
- Active Head Lice
An updated copy of immunization records are due upon enrollment. The Health Office will contact families with upcoming &/or expired records.
Feel free to contact Mrs. Langelier at (480) 424-8402 with any questions

Action Teams Update
We Love Coffee Fridays!!
The Aviator Bean is a student-led coffee cart that provides our staff a monthly coffee & yummy treat. Teachers bring their own mug, fill it up, & enjoy each other's company. This is a great way for our students to learn communication skills, responsibility & how to run a business.
Thank you to Mrs. Wilcox, Mrs. Hattaway, & Mr. Merrill for leading this amazing opportunity for our school!!
**Proceeds from the breakfast treats help support sensory materials in our classrooms**
