Roadrunner News

Hello Roadrunner students and families, 

The faculty and staff miss you all very much. Although this is a difficult time for all of us, we know that the health and safety of our community is our priority. We wanted to share information in regards to the extended school closure for the rest of the school year. 

  • Distance learning packets for students were mailed out Monday, March 30, 2020 to the address on PowerSchool. For those that need address changes, please send information to the link below:  

  • Distance learning packets reflect a month’s worth of work and do not have to be returned due to Governor Ducey closing all schools until the end of the school year as a means to protect our students, faculty, and staff from the spread of COVID-19.  We are hoping that classes will resume in August

  • Distance learning packets include practice and learning opportunities to prepare students for the upcoming school year.

  • A second packet will be mailed out at the end of April for the month of May.

  • For any questions or concern, please call our school at (520) 287-0880 or email Mrs. Bonillas at:

  • Los paquetes de aprendizaje a distancia incluyen oportunidades de práctica y aprendizaje para preparar a los estudiantes para el próximo año escolar.
