The Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) has recognized and adopted the second Monday of October to be observed as Indigenous Peoples' Day. We here in the Native American Indian Education Program, would like to make you aware that there will be virtual messages on the FUSD Facebook page and events happening throughout the City of Flagstaff (virtually). When you have the time to view at your leisure, please share with your family and friends as well as with your staff and students.
As of 10/1/2020, FUSD has 2,839 Native American students and 40 different tribes represented. Many are tribes within Arizona, and some come from as far north as Washington and far east as New York.
On behalf of our program we would like to send our prayers and blessings to our community that we serve and will continue to strive at sharing and being a part of the successes of all our 9,000 plus students, academically and culturally.

Flagstaff USD is introducing a new communications tool called Anonymous Alerts® to allow students or parents to easily report urgent information to school officials anonymously across all of our school campuses when students return to school following the Thanksgiving Break. The system encourages students, parents and community to confidentially report bullying, cyber-bullying, and other sensitive topics to our administration.
