IMPORTANT UPDATES

School Closure FAQs from Principal Slover 4.24.18 6:00pm

  • How will this impact promotion? We do not have any changes to the promotion schedule planned due to the closure of schools. Promotion is still scheduled for Thursday, May 24th.
  • How will this impact planned field trips? In-district field trips during the school closure will be rescheduled. Out of district field trips, such as the Band and Strings field trip, will continue as planned. All parents and families involved with these field trips have been notified by teachers. 
  • How will this impact gifted and/or middle school math placement testing? We are currently working with our Gifted department to change test dates when school resumes. We are also rescheduling our middle school math placement testing. We will be sure to communicate both sets of dates to parents so you will have as much notice as possible.
  • Where do I go for the most up to date information? The district Communications Department has set up a website that will be updated frequently with news about school closures. We recommend utilizing the district website, district social media, and school newsletters/communication to ensure you are receiving accurate information. The SUSD website page specific to closures can be found here. You are always welcome to email Mrs. Slover or call her at 480-484-1410, as well.
  • How will district notify parents aside from the website? The district also sends out updates through text message and email. Please note:  if you are not receiving text messages from the district, it could be because your cell phone is listed as home phone in our system. If you think this might be the case, please call to verify your information is correct in our system.

  • A special invitation to all CRS 2nd Grade students and their families has been extended by Ms. Lindsay Vanegas, the Arts and Education Coordinator for the DC Ranch Homestead Playhouse to attend the performance on Friday, April 27th at 9:00am.
