Study Session on School Start/End Times Planned for Dec. 5

As we prepare to open our ninth school in August, the district must evaluate the impact Estrella Foothills Global Academy will have on our bus transportation services and, in turn, school start and end times.

On Thursday, December 5 at 6:00 p.m., the Governing Board will hold a study session to review the possible changes to school start/end times beginning in the 2020-21 school year. 

We anticipate that the options being considered will be presented to the Board at their regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Thursday, December 12 at 5:30 p.m. Information regarding the options being considered will be shared following this week’s study session. 

Visit our Start Time Page for details and updates.

Kindergarten Round Up is February 4 for Students Starting in August 2020

Parents with students starting Kindergarten in August 2020 are invited to register their child during our annual Kindergarten Round Up event on Tuesday, February 4 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. You will also have the opportunity to meet the teachers and visit kindergarten classrooms. Children registered on this date will receive a free gift.

Kindergarten Round Up will take place at all Laveen schools with the exception of Vista del Sur, which requires an assessment prior to enrolling. Kindergartners enrolled at Paseo Pointe must be part of the Dual Language Immersion program, a 50/50 model where students spend half their day in a classroom where teaching and learning is conducted in Spanish and the other half in English. Kindergarten Round Up for the new Estrella Foothills Global Academy will take place at the Laveen Education Center, 5001 W. Dobbins.

Students may be enrolled in any of our schools regardless of where they live, space permitting. Families living outside of a particular school’s transportation zone will be responsible for providing transportation.

Please bring the following items to register your child.
* Proof of Residence (examples include: utility bill, rental agreement, mortgage statement, etc.)
* Child’s Immunization Record
* Child’s Original Birth Certificate (copies not accepted)
* Parent/Guardian’s Photo ID

Children must be 5 years old on or before August 31, 2020 to register. Children turning 5 after August 31, but by December 31, may be evaluated for early entrance in May.

Laveen offers free Full Day Kindergarten at all schools.
