Yá’át’ééh! We are located in the Navajo Nation of Arizona, and we are very proud of our heritage. An old Navajo proverb tells us that we do not inherit the land from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children. It is our privilege and honor to be in the position to accompany our children on their journey to great heights and solid futures. As you browse through our website, we know you’ll catch our enthusiasm and appreciate our awe-inspiring past, present, and future. We believe that, together, we can accomplish great things!
A Special Message from Our Superintendent
March 2015: Blowin' in the Wind, Spring is Here Again
If the wind is blowing, it must be March. I would just like to update everyone on our end-of-the-year calendar so that everyone is aware of when school ends. We normally have 6 extra days added onto our school calendar just in case we need to use them for rain, snow, mud, etc. We had a couple of snowy/rainy weeks the last two months, which pushed us beyond the 6 days. The state law says that school must be in session for 180 days.
If we did not cancel school on any of the 6 extra days during the year, we would have finished school on May 15th. The 6 extra days ended on May 26th. Unfortunately, we cancelled school 8 days, which means the last day of school will now be the 28th of May. On May 28th we will have an early release day with school ending at noon.
Thank you to all the parents and guardians for your understanding and help ensuring our students comply with the state law and attend school the mandated 180 days. (We also needed the moisture.)
