The school's charter agreement requires Horizon Honors Elementary School to provide 180 instructional days each school year. The school is not allowed to use overage of required instructional minutes to makeup for school days lost during the April school closures. You may hear that other schools and districts are using instructional minutes to makeup time for closures, but our school's charter does not allow for that flexibility. The school may request an exception directly from Arizona Department of Education Superintendent Diane Douglas. However, the process could be lengthy and is not guaranteed. We know families cannot wait for this vital information, so we will not be pursuing an exception. 

We understand that the extension of the school year may impede on your previously scheduled summer plans. If you have a conflict and your child will not be able to attend the last two days of school, please contact our attendance office at with any absence details, as well as your child's teachers, so arrangements can be made as soon as possible to accommodate individual situations.

Your continued support for our community has been nothing short of remarkable. Thank you for helping us end the 2017-2018 school year strong.
