Curriculum Night
All parents should plan to attend their child’s Curriculum Night scheduled during the beginning of the second week of school. This is a brief but informative opportunity for parents to learn what their child will be mastering in math, English language arts, science, and social studies, as well as learn about classroom expectations and school/home communication.

Immunization requirements
Arizona State law ARS 15-871-874 requires that a complete, up-to-date immunization record be furnished by the parent prior to enrolling a child in school.  
Middle School Students 11 years of age and older are required to have one dose of Tdap vaccine if 5 years have passed since their last dose of tetanus/diphtheria containing vaccine. Most children had their last DPT when they were 5 years old, so most 11 year old children will be due for a booster.
Students 11 years of age and older are required to have one dose of Meningococcal vaccine (MV, MCV4, or Menactra).
These immunizations will be due by the first day of school, if your student will be 11 years old by that date.
