2020 Census
The U.S. Constitution requires that each decade a census, or count, is taken of America’s population. This year’s Census will start in mid-March, and we hope that you will take the time to respond so that we can get an accurate count of our community. Census data serves as the basis for distributing federal funding to schools, and helps us plan for future community needs.

This year for the first time, you will be able to self-respond online, by phone, or by mail. We encourage you to take advantage of these self-response options once you receive your invitation to participate. Please note that your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics—they cannot be used against you in any way.

Suspicious Strangers
Good afternoon El Mirage Elementary parents and guardians,

We feel it is important to keep you informed about anything that could impact the safety of our students. We have received reports about suspicious strangers in the area. El Mirage Police have been notified and are investigating. 

In light of these events, we ask that you please talk to your children about safety as they come to and from school, or travel around the neighborhood. Here are some safety reminders you may share with your child:
  • Report anything you see or hear that makes you feel uncomfortable or is suspicious to a trusted adult immediately.
  • Make sure to notify your parents of your route to and from school, and don’t take shortcuts.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings. Don’t be distracted by electronic devices.
  • Don’t talk to strangers, or take rides from people if it wasn’t arranged by a parent.

The safety of our students is our top priority. Please report any concerning incidents to the school or law enforcement immediately. Please visit our website at for more safety tips, or report safety concerns online at Thank you for partnering with us in this important endeavor.

Thank you, 
Stephanie Scott, Principal

Dysart Seeks Memorabilia and Stories for Centennial Celebration

The Dysart Unified School District will be celebrating its 100th year of educating the community in the 2020-2021 school year. With more than 100 years of history, we know that there are many stories and memories that exemplify the extraordinary experiences students, staff, parents, and community members have had over the past century.  

We are looking for people to share their memories and stories to be used as part of the centennial celebration. District alumni, staff, students and the community are also invited to help plan events, research history, collect memorabilia, fundraise, and volunteer at events. Anyone that would like to participate may do so at Dysart looks forward to many more years of providing extraordinary experiences to our community.
