Dear Altar Valley Families,

I want to thank you all for an all-star school year and wish you a fun and safe summer! As you enjoy your summer vacation, I would ask that you visit our website often to keep up to date on upcoming events.

As we begin the summer, please note that our Discovery STEM summer camp will start Monday, June 5. Our district office hours from June 5 through July 21 will be 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The entire district will be closed on Fridays through July 21, 2017. 

Back to school registration will be July 26, 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and July 27, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We start school August 3, 2017.
