Dress Code for Outerwear

Hey, Mustangs! The weather is finally cooling off and we are starting to see jackets again. The PBIS team would like to remind you of the dress code for outerwear. The following is directly from the parent student handbook: outerwear (jackets, coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, raincoats) is designed to be worn outside as weather dictates. Students must remove outerwear in the school or classroom. Students may wear sweaters and sweatshirts that conform to district dress code colors (solid dark green, ash gray, burgundy, black, or white) inside the school building and in the classroom. No logos or labels showing on the outerwear, unless it is the school or district logo.

That means, if a piece of outerwear is to be worn inside the classroom, it must be a solid uniform top color (dark green, ash gray, burgundy), black, or white. It must be free of any logo (unless a school or district logo). If the outerwear does not match these requirements, students may not wear it inside. However, students may wear it outside. Please note that blue is not an approved dress code top color and we will not permit it in the classroom. Should you have any questions, please reach out to your child's teacher.


Pickup Time

We have been having a challenge at pickup time. We have multiple families and students that need to use our handicapped spaces including students with wheelchairs. We know the parking lot is crazy, but at no time should a car without a handicapped sticker or plate use the handicapped parking spaces. We will be addressing this with people as it occurs, but we ask for you compassion and assistance.

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.

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
