Happy School Bus Driver Appreciation Day! Our bus drivers are some of the unsung heroes in the district, transporting students rain or shine (or 50 mph gusts:). These men and women are up at daybreak and transport students daily in town as well as from Hunt and Concho to Mountain View and all the way to Sanders. We are so grateful for them!
This post is just to provide information for those interested regarding the fire alarm going off this morning at Coronado. The fire alarm went off first thing this morning. Following emergency protocol, the building was evacuated immediately. Because of the freezing temperatures, buses were brought in to keep students warm. It looks like maybe a burner in one of our heating units malfunctioned due to the freezing temperatures, leading to some smoking/smoke smell. The fire department did a great job identifying the issue and helping us resolve it. Our maintenance team will be working on this unit to fix it. Fortunately, it is a unit that serves a classroom that is not used during the day. When students came back to the school, students who normally eat breakfast were given time to get breakfast. We are really grateful for our great fire department, as well as the food service and transportation departments for making things work this morning. Also, a huge thank you to teachers and staff who sat with kids on the bus and who made the best of a disruption to the normal school day.
The fire department has resolved the issue and students are clear to go to class.
Update: the fire department is still working on the issue at the Coronado school. Students are on the buses to keep warm. We're hoping for resolution soon so kids can get back in the building.
UPDATE: The Sanders and the Concho/Hunt bus routes are CANCELLED for today. All other bus routes are on a 2 hour delay.
All of our schools will be on a 2 hour delay this morning. Sanders and Hunt/Concho bus routes on a 2 hour delay for now.

Thank you to everyone who has made a tax credit donation to our schools this year. We really appreciate living in a community that is so supportive of our students. If you have not yet made a tax credit donation for this school year and would like to, the process takes just a couple minutes and can be done on our website (use link below). https://az-stjohns-lite.intouchreceipting.com/default Those who make a tax credit donation help fund extracurricular activities in our schools while then receiving every dollar back as a tax credit.
Shoutout to Breonna Ellington, one of our amazing 1st grade teachers. Breonna just completed her master's degree, with an emphasis in reading education. This is a huge accomplishment as it represents hours and hours of schooling that Breonna did after work, while also raising a family. Her students will be the benefactors of her hard work for years to come. We feel very fortunate to have Breonna as one of our teachers!
