Laveen Schools Move to E-Flyers

Beginning in August 2017, Laveen schools will utilize Peachjar’s e-flyer system to distribute flyers, newsletters, and other student-centered information to parents.

E-mail blasts containing flyers from your child’s school, PTO, or non-profit student-centered activities will be sent to parents generally once a week. Flyers are maintained on a dedicated webpage for later reference.

Only school information such as school newsletters, event flyers, and PTO happenings as well as approved flyers from non-profit child-centered organizations such as Girl Scouts, ball leagues, and local community groups will be sent to the email addresses on file for each family. Parents should make sure their school office has their current email address.

Parents may sign up for a free Peachjar account to utilize added features, like combining schools. But, this is not necessary to receive flyers.

Visit www.laveeneld.org/e-flyers for more information.

Laveen Schools to Implement Student IDs for 2017-18

Beginning in August 2017, all students attending Laveen schools will be required to wear a student identification badge at all times while on campus or on the bus.

In addition to serving as school identification, the badges will contain a bar code for students to use as they go through the cafeteria line. Students utilizing Laveen’s bus transportation will also swipe their badge as they board and exit the bus. Read more about the Zonar bus pass system.

In an effort to expedite the issuing of these badges when school resumes, we ask newly enrolled students to visit their school office to have their photo taken. Hours for student ID photos are as follows.

Date Hours Schools
June 22 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. All Laveen Schools
June 29 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. All schools except Desert Meadows
July 10,11,12,13 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. All Laveen Schools

Badges for returning students will include the student’s photo on file.

Immunizations Required for 11-Year-Olds Entering 6th Grade

The Arizona Department of Health Services requires that all 11-year-old children entering sixth grade obtain two adolescent vaccines, Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4). These new immunizations are important as they will provide protection against serious illness.

Tdap is a combination vaccine that provides protection against three bacterial diseases — Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Whooping Cough). Meningococcal prevents against four types of bacterial meningitis.

Parents should review their child’s immunization records. If these vaccinations have not been received, the child should obtain the vaccination at either their doctor’s office or an immunization clinic. Proof of immunizations will need to be received before the student can begin school on August 7.

Students who do not have these new, required shots will not be allowed start school. Children who are not yet 11 will be required to get the new immunizations once they turn 11.
