What's New

There's a lot going on in Altar Valley. Our District News page will give you a taste of why we are so proud of our students, our teachers, and our community.

July Superintendent Message

Dear Altar Valley Families,

Happy Summer! I hope everyone is enjoying the summer break and staying cool. Discover STEM Summer Camp flew by with a great four weeks of hands-on STEM activities along with several field trips, including visits to the Desert Sonoran Museum, the Pima Air and Space Museum, and the movies. Thank you to all of the families and staff that participated this summer!

As everyone knows, the Contreras Fire threatened our community this summer. We were proud to partner with the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Indian Affairs to serve as the home of the Contreras Fire incident command. Fortunately, the fire has been contained, so the incident command has moved out of Robles Elementary. Thank you to everyone who provided resources and support to the fire personnel.

As July begins, the Altar Valley team is focused on the start of the new 2022-2023 school year. The first day of school is Thursday, August 4. Until then, I hope the remainder of your summer is fun and safe!

Happy Independence Day!

Dr. Dave Dumon
