FTA Meet the Teacher Night 2020
Meet the Teacher Night 

This year, our Meet the Teacher night will look a little different.  On Wednesday, July 29, your child's teacher will send out an email introducing him or herself to you. In this email, there will be a video of your child's teacher talking about how instruction will be delivered during remote learning and in person, safety protocols in place when in person school resumes, grading policies, and many more important details.  This email will also contain a link for you to sign up for a 10 minute slot of time to conference with your teacher on Friday, July 31.  You will have the option of the teacher calling you or virtually meeting with you using Google Meets or Zoom.   Families will receive 2 volunteer hours when they conference with their child's teacher.  Please note that 2 hours will only be given to families once - even if there are multiple children.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call our front office at 623-523-8650.

Complete Your Annual Student Update Online
New This Year! 

Complete Your Annual Student Update Online.

Each year, school districts are required to verify student information. We are excited to announce that we now have an online version of our Annual Student Update available on the ParentPortal.  

To ensure that we can communicate with families regarding their student, or in the case of an emergency, it is essential we have accurate and up-to-date contact information. The new online form allows you to confirm or update your contact information, address, student health and emergency contact information and preferences.

Additionally, the Annual Student Update allows parents to identify if they are in the military. Knowing where our military families attend school will assist the Dysart Unified School District in applying for Federal Impact Aid funding.

A Parent Portal account is needed to complete the Annual Student Update. In addition to being able to complete the Annual Student Update online, the Parent Portal can be a great tool for parents to stay informed 24/7 about their child’s academic progress. Grades, attendance, assignments, and more are viewable in real time online or via the app. Parents with multiple students in the district have a single login to access information for all of their children in one place. The Campus Parent app is available on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon. If you don’t already have an account, you may sign up for one at ParentPortal.

Please perform your Annual Student Update today in 3 easy steps:

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 Additional information, resources, and school safety tips can be found on our website at

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.
