School LunchesTo reduce the fees parents pay for meals, Kyrene is using a new online system for school meal accounts. Prior to the school year, please visit www.k12paymentcenter.com and set up your account. Note: Previous balances have been rolled over already. As always, checks made payable to Kyrene School District and cash are always accepted at the school sites. K12PaymentCenter may be used to view your child's balance and meal purchases without making payments.Parents/Guardians can apply online at Lunchapplication.com by mid-July to get meal assistance in place before school begins. Paper meal applications are sent home on the first day of school with all students. A Spanish version of the meal application is available in the school office. Please look for the notification letter to be emailed back from email@example.com – School Nutrition Department.
Supply ListsBasic grade level supply lists are available. (Some school-specific or classroom-specific requests may be provided on Meet the Teacher night.)
Bus Stops and RoutesBus routes and stops do change from year to year. Please visit Kyrene's Transportation page for the most current information.
Immunization requirementsArizona 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.
