What is your attendance policy?

By law, children enrolled in a public school must attend that school all day, every day. Please contact our office before 9:00 a.m. when you know your child will be absent and as soon as possible for unexpected absences. Parents/Guardians must sign their children in (if they arrive after 10:00 a.m.) and out. State law requires that parents/guardians provide documentation for any absence within one day of a child's return to school.

What about changes in how my child will go home?

Call us at least 45 minutes before the end of the school day if there are changes in how your child will go home from school. Children may not get off at another stop or go home with another person without a note or call from their parents/guardians.

What meals does the cafeteria serve, and what is the cost?

Elementary Pricing Schools: Alice Byrne, Palmcroft, Rolle, Otondo, Desert Mesa, and Sunrise

We know that breakfast is the most important part of the day. That is why at Yuma School District One, we offer breakfast at no cost. We serve breakfast from 8:10 a.m. to 8:40 a.m. Please join us. If a parent or child would like to join a student and purchase breakfast, the cost is $2.00. Lunch is available to all students for $1.50 every day. If a parent or guest would like to join their student for lunch, the cost is $3.00.

You may fill out a free and reduced lunch application at any time during the school year if you think your child may qualify. If you would like to manage your meal account online or make an online payment you may go to e-Funds for Schools. You just need your student’s eight-digit student i.d. number. See the cafeteria manager for more details. We look forward to serving you. 

If your student brings a sack lunch from home, they may still purchase a juice or milk for 25 cents to go with their meal. Due to USDA guidelines, milk or juice is 25 cents, regardless if your student qualifies for free and reduced priced meals.

Yuma School District One's policy prohibits the wearing of clothing displaying objectionable or gang-related symbols. Bare midriffs, see-through blouses, halter tops, thin straps, backless or strapless tops, muscle or mesh-type shirts, half t-shirts and clothing, or tattoos with inscriptions or pictures that are vulgar or offensive to others are prohibited. Excessively baggy, loose-fitting, or cut off clothing is not allowed. Pants and shorts must fit at the waist, and all undergarments must be covered. Caps may be worn outdoors but may not be worn backwards or sideways. Items that may cause injury, such as spiked jewelry or oversized earrings are prohibited. Students should not bring nail polish, make-up, hair spray or color, or cologne/perfume to school. 

School personnel will determine whether clothing is appropriate. Children wearing inappropriate clothing at school may call home to have acceptable clothing brought to school or may borrow appropriate clothing from the health office. Children may not be allowed to return to class until the objectionable article has been replaced.

Does the school offer insurance?

Yes. You may purchase school insurance for a nominal fee – call the office for details. Arizona offers low-cost insurance for children that ACCHS does not cover (call 1-800-764-KIDS), and uninsured families may receive care for their children with a referral from a District nurse.
