In keeping with our commitment to providing a safe school environment and working collaboratively with the communities we serve, we have adopted new policies, regulations and procedures regarding visitors to our schools or to PUHSD-sponsored events held off of PUHSD premises.
Governing Board Policies KFA (Public Conduct on School Property) and KI and Administrative Regulations KI-RA (Visitors to Schools) and KI-RB (Procedures for Visitors Communication or Access Restrictions) describe the conduct the PUHSD requires of a visitor. These requirements are intended to ensure students, employees, and visitors are safe and a visitor does not interfere with the school’s administrative, educational, and operational programs. Copies of KFA, KI, KI-RA, and KI-RB can be found by following this link: www.phoenixunion.org/visitorpolicy
If you have any questions about the policies, regulations or procedures, please contact Dr. Gabriel Trujillo at the Phoenix Union District office at (602) 764-1548.
