    Meet the Teacher Night 
    This is the night when your child will meet his/her teacher! You can also purchase PTO items, put money in your child’s lunch account, drop off school supplies, etc. There will also be a Community Education table. Please stop by and find out about programs for before/after school time.
     
    • Monday, July 30, Elementary Schools: Meet the Teacher Night from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
    • Tuesday, July 31, Middle Schools: Meet the Teacher Night and Curriculum Night held at middle schools from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.  

    Curriculum Night
    Middle school curriculum information will be presented on Meet the Teacher Night. (Some schools operate on a staggered schedule that evening.) Please check your school's website for grade level information.
    Elementary 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.
