Eagles News

We’re always trying to improve communication between home and school; especially since we know that it’s difficult for middle schoolers to keep their parents informed about what’s happening on campus. We’ll be placing newsworthy information on this page so you don’t have to hound your child for information. It’s a win-win situation!

March 21, 2020 Update

Altar Valley Families,

Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman announced an extension of the statewide closure of all schools through Friday, April 10. Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate through this difficult time. Below is information on resources that will be provided during the closure.


During the closure, Altar Valley School District will be utilizing a curbside meal service for children. We will provide breakfast and lunch at Robles Elementary from 7:30 – 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. -1:00 p.m. starting Monday, March 23. Meals are available to all children 18 years old and younger. Children must be present to receive a meal. There will be no adult meals served.

Distance Learning Opportunities

AVSD will be providing learning materials throughout the closure. You may see some materials provided for your children as soon as next week. We will build on this as teachers return from Spring Break and have more time to develop lessons and activities.

Also, AVSD has online programs that students regularly use in the classroom. We will provide instructions on how to access those resources for use at home for students that have Internet access and devices.

You can expect to hear from your schools and teachers next week with more specific information. It’s important that you monitor the channels that your child(ren)’s teachers typically use to communicate with you regularly. These may include email, texts, and phone calls.

Please continue to monitor the AVSD website, Facebook, and other communication channels for updates on the status of school closures.

Fantastic Fifth Grade

As we begin winding down the school year our fabulous fifth grade team is reflecting on a year of growth and change. Mrs. Venglarcik moved into 5th/6th science and Mrs. Mattias into 5th/6th grade social studies.

Mrs. Laureta’s focus turned to ELA and Mrs. Bauerelen’s to math. While we all love teaching, being able to focus on one area of ‘expertise’ benefits our students greatly and makes us all happy. For more information, please see our April 2020 newsletter.
