Help Needed 
We have positions available at Mountain Shadows!  If interested, we are hiring 2 SPED HQ Paraprofessionals that work 6.75 hours a day for the 9 month school year with various students throughout the day.  We also have an evening 12-month custodian position; 4 hours daily after the students are gone for the day.  Please call Andrea at 623-445-4304 so I can help!
Student Insurance 
The school district has selected the Student Insurance Plan from United Healthcare to make reliable coverage available to parents.  If you do not have other insurance, this plan may be a resource to consider.  Additionally, even if you have other coverage, this plan can help fill expensive “gaps” caused by deductibles and copays.  Coverage may be purchase at any time during the school year by visiting
Have a great week!
