Chromebook Check-out and other Information
Dear Parents and Guardians of Western Peaks Students, 

Due to current circumstances, we will be starting our year on August 4th with remote online learning. In the days ahead, you will receive email communication informing you of who your child's homeroom teacher will be. As well, if you signed up for your child to be in iSchool this year, they will be considered an iSchool at Western Peaks student, meaning that their iSchool teacher will be a teacher from Western Peaks. For students who were in the Innovation Academy, but now enrolled in iSchool, their iSchool teacher will be one of the Innovation Academy teachers. 

All students will need access to a computer or chromebook in order to access their education from home during remote learning.  IF your child(ren) needs a device provided for them, please see the schedule below for chromebook pick up and check out.  Also, this year, the Dysart school district will be assessing an insurance fee for all devices.

Important Safety Reminders from the Superintendent
Dysart SafeDysart Parents and Guardians,

As we near the end of the school year, I am writing to ask you to partner with us to keep our Dysart students and campuses safe and secure. Historically, as students eagerly anticipate the approach of summer, the number of school threats increases. Dysart is hoping to stem this issue with your help.

As a fellow community member, I ask you to please:

1. Have a discussion with your child(ren) about the importance of immediately sharing information that could be considered threatening to our community with a responsible adult. This could be a parent, teacher or school staff member.
2. Make it clear to your child(ren) that online threats and rumors should not be forwarded or shared, because doing so impedes police investigations.
3. Discuss with your child(ren) the seriousness of making threats toward schools, and remind them that there are a number of charges that can be filed against students – including felony offenses.

If you become aware of an immediate threat, please call 911.  Otherwise, call law enforcement non-emergency lines to report potential threats towards our schools or the community in Surprise (623-222-4000), El Mirage (623-933-1341) or Maricopa County (602-876-1602).

Another option for reporting school safety issues or concerns is through our Safe Schools Hotline (623-876-7009) or online via Dysart Safe Report at Dysart.org/SafeReport. Additional information, resources, and school safety tips can be found on our website at Dysart.org/Safety.

Dysart is proud of our relationships with local law enforcement agencies, and works collaboratively with them to ensure the safety of our students and staff.  We all have a responsibility to be vigilant and should strive to prioritize the well-being of our community. Thank you for partnering with us to ensure our campuses are always a safe place for our students.

Respectfully,

Quinn R. Kellis, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Dysart Unified School District
