Just a friendly reminder that winter is still upon us. If FUSD makes the call, FALA will also have delays and closures. Also, make sure to allow lots of extra time to get to FALA while Snowbowl is open - and drive safely!

Spring Break is March 18 - 22nd.

There are no Senior Updates in this week's Buzz, but please do continue to check the Buzz for future Senior Updates.

Progress 5 Grading Period ends on Tuesday March 12, 2019.

Tax Credit Donations
Good news for those who’d still like to take a chunk out of their 2018 state taxes: You now have until April 15 to make a fully deductible donation via the Public School Tax Credit Program.

More good news: Doing so would help fill a variety of classroom needs at the Flagstaff Academy of Leadership and Arts.
As you may already know, a cash donation to a public or charter school in Arizona means you get a dollar-for-dollar reduction in your tax liability. Each credit is worth up to $400 for married couples filing jointly and $200 for others.

By donating this way you have a say in how your tax money is spent in Arizona. At flagarts.com/donate, you can choose from a variety of extracurricular and educational programs.

Keep in mind that if you contribute more than the total credit amount allowed for this year, the credits can be carried forward five years. Contact your tax preparer for more information about the program.

Visit flagarts.com/donate for a Tax Credit Program form and further details about the donation process.
