Feliz Día de Niño! Special thank you to Ms. García for the video.

Hello Roadrunner students and families, 

The faculty and staff miss you all very much. We understand that this is a difficult time for all of us, we know that the health and safety of our families, students, and the community is our priority.

We wanted to share information regarding the extended school closure for the rest of the school year. 

The second round of Distance Learning Packets for our students were mailed out Friday, April 17, 2020 to the address in PowerSchool. For those that need address changes, please send information to the link below:  

Distance Learning Packets reflect a month’s worth of schoolwork and do not have to be returned. Due to Arizona Governor Ducey closing all schools until the end of the school year to protect our students, families, faculty, and staff from the spread of COVID-19.  

Distance Learning Packets include practice and learning opportunities to prepare students for the upcoming school year.

A first packet was mailed out in March. Please keep that packet. If you did not receive the packet, please call Mary L. Welty at (520) 287-0880. 

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