Return to School SY20–21

Dear QCUSD Parents/Guardians,

On June 29, Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order delaying the opening of school buildings until August 17, 2020. The order impacts the opening of all schools in the Queen Creek Unified School District. In light of this announcement, our schools will not physically open on July 22, 2020. However, we are working to determine if we can still begin the school year (via distance learning) on July 22 so that students can continue their learning activities.

QCUSD anticipated additional changes and has been patient and thoughtful in its approach to ensure effective communication without multiple changes to both families and staff. As we process this latest executive order, we are working with the governing board to determine considerations for students, staff, and families. We also understand that this announcement may bring many questions, and we are working to answer those questions reliably and efficiently.

In the meantime, please continue to check the Parent FAQ, and thank you for your patience and support during this time.

The application for free/reduced breakfast and lunch will be available for the 2020–2021 school year on July 1. For online applications, please visit the Titan School Solutions website.

QCUSD Introduces Online Enrollment

A new online system is available to make the enrollment process easier and more efficient for families. The Queen Creek Unified School District (QCUSD) is excited to announce the launch of online enrollment for families new to the East Valley area. The online enrollment system will go live Monday, May 4, 2020, for new students/families only. Current enrollees and returning students do not need to take action on May 4 and will receive re-enrollment instructions in July. The online enrollment portal will give parents and guardians the flexibility to upload documents and enroll students from the comfort of their own computer in their own home. Please refer to our online enrollment FAQ for information on the online enrollment process. Additional information about enrolling in QCUSD can be found on the district Enrollment page. Queen Creek looks forward to welcoming you next school year! School starts on July 22, 2020.
