The administrative leadership is changing at Foothills Fine Arts Academy. Many schools have had some changes that focus on experiences for future principals at schools. PUSD has made some administrative changes not in a negative way, but a way to ensure our schools are led by administration with great experiences. We are sad to announce that Assistant Principal Alison Shinkle will be leaving Foothills and transferred to another PUSD school. We strive deeply with the mindset of “Family”. Alison has been a great contribution to the Foothills Family, and we are incredibly sad that she is leaving but very happy that her new experiences will open up new ideas and knowledges she will grow within her own leadership. Know we will be announcing any new staff here in just a few weeks.



This summer, Foothills is providing Summer Food Service for children 18 years and younger. Breakfast and lunch are offered at no cost. Breakfast is offered from 7:30AM to 8:30AM and lunch is offered from 10:45 AM to 12:30PM. These are offered Monday through Friday. Adults are welcome too. Breakfast for adults is $1.75 and lunch for adults is $3.00. This service will be provided until July 26th. Know this is an equal opportunity program that we strive to serve for our school community!



This is just a reminder of our prior messaging about our new Kick Start program. The program is designed to utilize minimal structured time to assess all students’ levels of academic performance before they start school. We do this every year, but it takes away teacher instructional time for weeks at the beginning of the school year. Our biggest goal is to ensure we are serving all of our Foothills students in the most productive way to ensure growth in their academic skills.

Here is how you can currently sign up:

  • You can go to the Foothills Web Site to get information and a copy of the flier you can print out.
  • You can click here or click the link on the Foothills Web site to register on-line.
  • You can drop off your form there in the office. The office is open this next week from Monday through Thursday. 7:00-5:00PM.
  • If you would like to just stop by the school office you can fill out a form and we will get you set for a date and time.

Please know on the Foothills Web Site, we have an updated list of times and dates that are open and some are currently full. With the on-line program, please only choose to sign up for July 22, 23, 24, or 25. Our goal is 100% of our 2019-20 school year kindergarten through 3rd grade students be assessed in their academic skills before the school year starts!

If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email administration. We will update the availability of the sessions on our Foothills Web site.
