April 24th: May Lunch Menu and News

No school this Thursday or Friday:

Dear Parents,

I am writing to inform you that we will be closing all Vail Unified School District schools this Thursday and Friday, April 26 and April 27 due to inadequate staffing.

We are hopeful the walkout and cancelation will not extend into Monday. In the event that this changes, we will provide notice no later than Saturday.

Even though points of view may differ, please assume the best motives regarding the decisions of teachers and other staff members.

As we work together through this difficult time, I encourage you to remember that we are all united by a common bond. We deeply want what is best for your child.

Calvin Baker


The Upper School Dance will go on as planned this Friday night! Thank you volunteers!

Wright Flight was a huge Success!!

On Saturday, we had a group of kiddos, who've been participating in the Wright Flight program, get a chance to fly an airplane with a volunteer pilot! Congratulations to Katie, Alex, Josh, Noah M., Seth, Dexter, Sofia, Joseph and Austin F! This Saturday, Camila B. and Hope will get the same opportunity out of the Marana airport. We are so super proud of all of you for reaching your goals! A HUGE thank you to Ms. Joy for bringing Wright Flight to Civano! What an amazing opportunity!
