Superintendent Dr. David J. Peterson's April Letter
This is a busy time of year for all at Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD), and it’s hard to believe that we only have eight weeks left in the school year. We still have a lot of work ahead of us. As I write this, we are in the middle of AIMS testing. Our teachers have done a great job and our students are well prepared! During this school year, we have had many student and staff accomplishments of which we are extremely proud. See April Letter

New Skateboard Policy and Procedure at CHS

Beginning on
Monday, April 21st, Coronado High School asks that students follow the following policy regarding skateboards:

1. Skateboards are transportation and must be stored in one place throughout the school day.
Coronado purchased a skateboard rack that can secure boards with locks; it is located near the Southwest gate entrance between the two gyms.
3. Starting Monday, April 21st, any student who chooses to bring a board on campus must store it in one place for the duration of the school day. It is feasible that small boards could fit in the student’s locker; however, if a skateboard is seen in a classroom, the hallway, the courtyard, lunchroom, etc…, during school hours, the student will be escorted by security to administration. Principal Tarkington will hold the skateboard in her office until a parent picks it up.
 Students can purchase a lock from the book store for $5 or cheaper at a Walgreens, Target or Wal-Mart.
5. S
tudents are never to ride skateboards on school property.

If you have any questions/concerns, please feel free to contact Ms. Tarkington at 480-484-6808.
