Welcome Griffins 2020-2021

Hello, EVA/CR families, this message is from Principal Pilar.

We are excited to welcome our Griffins for the 2020-21 school year. As a reminder, we start school on August 4, with remote learning for all students.

Your child will need to have access to a laptop and internet to do their learning. EVA/CR will be distributing laptops to students and families who need or want to borrow one on 7/31 from 7-11am.  

We will be handing out the laptops in a drive-thru format. You must remain in your vehicle at all times. Parents or legal guardians and students must be there in person to pick up their laptops. At pickup, employees will be asking families if they have reliable internet access and will have flyers with information about purchasing low-cost internet. Along with their laptop, students will be given instructions for logging on to their laptop, connect their laptop to WiFi and how to enroll in the Device Protection Plan. Additionally, you will receive instructions for logging in to Canvas, our district learning management system, which is where students will access online learning materials.

As soon as it is safe for our students and staff to return to campus, families may choose to transition to modified in-person and ultimately in-person learning. We will share more information when it becomes available.

We miss all of our Griffins and we can’t wait to see you. Stay safe and healthy, and enjoy your summer.


Hola, familias de EVA/CR, este mensaje es de la directora Pilar,

Estamos emocionados de dar la bienvenida a nuestro/as Griffins para el año escolar 2020-21. Como recordatorio, comenzaremos clases el 4 de agosto, con aprendizaje remoto para todos los estudiantes.

Su hijo necesitará tener acceso a una computadora portátil e internet para aprender. EVA/CR distribuirá computadoras portátiles a los estudiantes y las familias que necesiten o quieran pedir una prestada el 7/31, 7-11am.

Distribuiremos las computadoras portátiles a manera de “drive-thru”. Debe permanecer en su vehículo en todo momento. Los padres o tutores legales Y los estudiantes deben estar allí en persona para recoger sus computadoras portátiles. Los empleados del distrito preguntarán a las familias si tienen acceso confiable a Internet y tendrán volantes con información sobre cómo comprar internet de bajo costo. Junto con su computadora portátil, los estudiantes recibirán instrucciones para iniciar sesión en su computadora, conectar su computadora a WiFi y cómo inscribirse en el Plan de Protección del Dispositivo. Además, usted recibirá instrucciones para iniciar sesión en Canvas, nuestro sistema de administración de aprendizaje del distrito, que es donde los estudiantes accederán a los materiales de aprendizaje en línea.

Tan pronto como sea seguro para nuestros estudiantes y el personal regresar al campus, las familias podrán optar por la transición al aprendizaje presencial modificado y, en última instancia, presencial. Compartiremos más información cuando esté disponible.

Echamos de menos a todas/os nuestras/os Griffins y no podemos esperar a verlos. Manténgase seguro y saludable, y disfrute su verano.

Pawsitive Peers

Pawsitive Peers Foundation school dog program 

Mesa Public Schools is piloting the Pawsitive Peers Foundation school dog program developed by North Shore Animal League America using the Mutt-i-grees® curriculum.  The district has partnered with Arizona Humane Society, Arizona Animal Welfare League, and Maricopa County Animal Care and Control to identify compatible shelter dogs for school staff to adopt and have trained. Participating MPS staff and their dogs (care teams) are certified by Pet Partners and are registered with the Therapy Animal Program.

The Mutt-i-grees® curriculum is written by Yale University and will be used to incorporate lessons on social and emotional learning, resiliency, empathy and the human-animal bond. Students may also interact directly with dogs for more individualized learning opportunities. Additionally, these dogs can serve as a trusted companion in the counseling, nurse or administrative offices for crisis intervention, behavioral de-escalation, or simply to address stress, anxiety and/or isolation. 

The pilot schools are East Valley Academy, Johnson Elementary, Kino Junior High, Mountain View High School, and Rhodes Junior High.
