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.


Quinn R. Kellis, Ed.D.

The Willow Canyon High School (WCHS) TV Production and Media Club partnered with High School Nation to cover Major League Baseball's Spring Training. Six students had the opportunity to interview members of the Seattle Mariners organization and Major League Baseball (MLB) managers as part of Spring Training Media Day.

The students interviewed the voice of the Seattle Mariners, Rick Rizz, who told the students to find what they value, make it part of their career and work toward their goals. Students were also able to interview pitcher Yusei Kikuchi, alongside members of the national and international press. After spending time with the Mariners, the students had the opportunity to interview MLB managers.
This event was filmed by our partner, High School Nation. A video link and photos from the event are attached.

The Willow Canyon High School TV Production and Media Club works to prepare students for employment in various positions within radio, television, and film industries.  Working with groups like High School Nation for real-world opportunities is a key component to Career and Technical Education because students gain authentic experience in their chosen field.  In addition to the MLB interviews, WCHS TV Production and Media Club students have also qualified for the state competition with SkillsUSA.
