A MEssage from Our Principal

    Dear Altar Valley Middle School Families,

    The 2020-2021 school year is off to a unique start! As we continue to define what the year will hold for our students and families, rest assured that Altar Valley School District continues to work hard to develop safe procedures, protocols, and safety expectations for our school to promote safe student learning as we head to in-person learning. Our staff and teachers continue to interact with your children in the safest way possible. 

    As the principal at Altar Valley Middle School, I am very excited to begin the new part of our journey as we prepare to bring students back in-person beginning October 19. We are reaching out to families through a survey to determine parents' choice regarding the mode of instruction for their children through the remainder of 2020. The two options include the following: continuing remote learning or choosing a hybrid model that includes two days of in-person direct instruction, two days of independent practice, and one day of remote learning. If you have any questions or need additional information please reach out to us at AVMS.

    Our community continues to play a key role in the success and growth of the children of Three Points. Think of ways you can help the children by sharing your experiences - talking with children and showing them you care about their success has such a positive impact on their education. Continue to be a positive light in the lives of the children of Three Points! 

    Some important dates to remember:

    • On-Site Support - Continues to be available; if your child is in need of support due to one of the following please reach out to their school: at-risk students, special education students, English Language learners, those in care of the Arizona Department of Child Safety, including foster care, and students who do not have supervision at home during the school day. Transportation is not available for on-site support. 
    • In-person Hybrid Instruction - begins October 19 for 5th-8th grade students.
