Dear San Tan Families,

Happy first full week!! We are so enjoying having the kiddos here! Believe it or not, but we do have October break coming shortly. Early next week, please expect an email from Dr. Sippel about making adjustments for Quarter 2 learning choice.


Fall Picture Day

Fall Picture Day is coming up next week on September 23rd! Order packets will be going home by the end of this week and there will be an option to order/pay online. If you are a home-based kiddo, you are welcome to attend Picture Day between 8:30am to 9:30am or between 2:00pm to 3:00pm. Otherwise, you are able to have your student’s picture taken on our Retake Picture Day.

School Schedule:

  • Our school day will start at 8:30, with gates opening at 8:05. Students will have to go directly to their classroom once they are dropped off to ensure social distancing.
  • Dismissal will start at 2:30 and students will be expected to be off-campus, unless they have signed up for after care, by 3:15.
  • We will be employing an app for after school pick-up to ensure social distancing at the end of the day. This means that students will be dismissed by their teacher from the classroom once their parents/guardians have approached the school to pick them up.
