A Message From Principal Gutierrez


    Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, Staff, and Community, 

    As we approach the 2018-2019 school year, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and thank you for your desire to be a part of our great educational team.  It is through our dedication and compassion that we will strive to educate our children, one student at a time.

    As the educational leader of this school, it is my commitment to the students, to the parents, to the staff, and to the community, to support the educational program of each child, so that they have an opportunity to reach their highest potential.

    In order for us to provide our students with the best opportunities and experiences possible, it is essential that each student attend school daily and that they arrive at school on time.  According to Arizona Revised Statute, 5 absences or more is considered “habitual truant”.  If your child will be out, please call the absence line to report the absence.

    The Flagstaff Unified School District has adopted a new Wellness Policy to support the health and nutrition of our students.  We have taken several measures to ensure the success of this initiative by providing our students with Fit Kids, structured recess activities, etc.  Please be aware that we support the celebration of our students birthdays, we want to make sure that we support them in a healthy manner.  Attached to the Wellness Policy you will find a suggested list for “birthday snacks”.  We truly appreciate your support.  

    Thank you so much for sharing your child/children with us.  We look forward to providing our students with the best educational experiences possible.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school office.
