QCUSD School Closure Updates

Dear QCUSD Parents, Community and Staff,

In order to keep you updated, we want to inform you that our recent teacher absence data indicates there will not be adequate supervision for students on Friday, April 27, 2018. Therefore, we will close all schools in the Queen Creek Unified School District Thursday, April 26 and Friday, April 27, 2018. We will be monitoring teacher absences daily to determine possible future closures.

We recognize there are many questions. Please note we have set up a QCUSD Information Portal where we will post the most current information. We will continue to use School Messenger, social media, etc to communicate any updates/changes. 

We appreciate your patience as we continue to monitor the situation and communicate daily. Thank you for your continued support while we work through this statewide issue.

Queen Creek Unified School District Youth Athletics Program

The Queen Creek Unified School District (QCUSD) youth athletics program (YAP) is a district program taught by QCUSD athletics program coaches. YAP provides sports opportunities for all students and includes year round camps and clinics in a variety of sports at district facilities.

Registration Is Now Open for Summer Camp

This year, we are offering a summer camp in four locations - Desert Mountain, Frances Brandon Pickett, Jack Barnes, and Gateway Polytechnic. Please go online to register. We have limited space! The cost of summer camp is $30 per day or a $120 weekly rate for Monday-Friday if paid by deadline. After the deadline, the price is $35 per day with no weekly rate. We must receive registration and payment by the deadline, which is the Monday prior to the week your child is attending. 

60 Day Book Review

Botany, An Introduction to Plant Biology, 6th Edition by James D. Mauseth and the accompanying lab manual is up for supplementary materials adoption. Per regulation IJJR, textbooks and supplementary books for common schools recommended by textbook selection committees will be on display in the district office for a period of at least sixty (60) days prior to the meeting at which the board will consider its adoption.

This book will be on display from Monday, April 9, 2018, through Tuesday, June 19, 2018. At this time, there will be a book presentation to the board for possible adoption approval. Please contact Erika Copeland with any questions, comments, or concerns.
