Parking Lot Reminders

Please be sure to follow our parking lot procedures.

  • The back parking lot is for staff parking and buses only.
  • The front parking lot is for parents and visitors.
  • Parent pick–up and drop–off is one way in the front of the building only. Please enter through the west gate and exit through the east gate.
  • Student drop off is permitted on sidewalk/curb only. We do not prohibit student drop off in the parking lot. If using the parking lot, parents must park and accompany their child to crosswalk. Please drop students off at the curb only, not in the middle of the line of traffic. This procedure is necessary to keep our students safe.
  • All visitors need to park in the parking lot and not on the curb. Visitors must enter the building through the administration office, sign in, and obtain a visitor’s pass. Students can enter through the west and east entrance in the morning, unless accompanied by an adult. They may enter through the office with an adult only.

Meet The Teacher

Please join us for meet the teacher night on Monday, July 23 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity to learn all about what is in store for the 2018-2019 school year. We look forward to seeing you there!

Tax Credit Information

Reduce your Arizona state tax by contributing to Littleton Elementary District schools! The state of Arizona allows taxpayers to take advantage of wonderful tax credits. Please consider donating to the Littleton Elementary District schools. Simply download, print, and return a form to the district office or any one of our schools today. Our goal is to double the amount collected last year. We need your help to accomplish this! Remember, a tax credit is better than a tax deduction.


Art Education Page

We have a new district Art Education page. We will be adding new things to the page in the coming weeks, so visit often.

Keeping Our Kids Healthy

Children and adolescents should limit recreational use of a computer to less than two hours a day, according to Healthy People 2020. Daily physical activity for 60 minutes is recommended to keep our kids healthy. We encourage you to make physical activity fun and get in on the action!

Activity is essential for growing children to:

  • Improve bone health
  • Improve cardio-respiratory and muscular fitness
  • Decrease levels of body fat
  • Reduce symptoms of depression
