Dear Altar Valley Community:

Many schools across the country have implemented a four-day school week as a cost saving measure, to retain highly qualified staff, and to increase valued family time. Altar Valley School District would like to know your thoughts on the implementation of a four-day school week for the 2021-2022 school year. To get your input, we invite you to complete the survey located on our website at and/or attend one of the upcoming meetings to get more information. 

Upcoming Meetings:

  • April 29, 2021 at 3:00 pm, Virtual meeting– please visit our website for more information
  • May 12, 2021 at 5:00 pm, Altar Valley Middle School Professional Development Room 

Below are a few details on the proposed 4-day school week plan:

  • School Days - Monday-Thursday; No school on Friday 
  • School Hours
    • Robles Elementary:  8:45 am -3:45 pm *
    • Altar Valley Middle School:  7:30 am -2:45 pm * 

*Please note: Robles and AVMS will change start times. 

  • Community School - A Community School option would be provided on two or three Friday’s a month from 8:45am – 1:45pm for Tutoring, Re-teaching, Enrichment, Accelerated learning, and Training (TREAT) for interested students in grades PK-8th Grade. Transportation and meals will be provided. Please note: one Friday each month will be designated for staff development and no community school will be provided. 

Working together we can continue to offer a safe learning environment in AVSD schools as we return to full-time, in-person learning. Please contact your child's teacher, principal, or me, at or 520 822 1484 for more information.
