KINDER CONNECT INFO
Each year Foothills holds an evening event for our future kindergarten students to come and get to know teachers, see classrooms, and get to know their school. This year will be different due to the limitations with COVID-19. We are setting up a virtual event. Kinder Connect will be March 10th, at 5:30PM. Information on how to attend the virtual event is on our website. If you or someone you know has a kindergarten student starting in the fall, please contact our office at 623-412-4625 to complete the paperwork to enroll.
We have had students out at various times due to COVID-19. We were glad to be able to check out computers to those students who were out for periods of time. As students can come back to campus, we need to get the computers back so they can be used in the classroom and for AZMerit and other testing items that is coming up soon. The office is open from 7:30AM to 3:30PM each day. If that time does not work, please call so we can work out a way for the computers to be brought back.
We are in need of a crossing guard starting after Spring Break. If you are interested in applying for the position, please go to the district website and select “I would like to apply for a job”. You can search for positions by school name. If you have any questions, please contact the office at 623-412-4625.
As the school year continues through the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to do all we can to support everyone’s health and safety. Information is available on the district website at https://www.peoriaunified.org . Everyone has been working hard to help with the safety mitigations we have in place. Continue to do all that you can at home as we do the same with hygiene, routines, and staying healthy.
