We had a wonderful showing at our Kindergarten Roundup this year, and thank all the families that attended for their time and interest: for those who were unable to attend the Kindergarten Roundup presentation, and we will be hosting a kindergarten tour on February 1st at 4:00 p.m. We look forward to showcasing our school and the programs offered at Sky Crossing. Please contact the front office at 602-449-5900 and let us know you are coming. Masks will be required. 

Open Enrollment

Continue your child's journey of excellence by open enrolling. Open Enrollment is a process allowing parents or guardians to apply for admission to any public school, as long as there is classroom space available. Parents and guardians often choose to open enroll their children in PVSchools for various reasons, including the unique and innovative award-winning programs, teaching philosophy, extracurricular activities, and more.

For more information on the open enrollment process, to include early bird open enrollment information, visit the PVSchools Open Enrollment webpage.

What time does the school day begin?

The school day begins at 8:45 at Sky Crossing ES. Students are welcome to arrive anytime after 8:20 am, and head to the playground area assigned to their grade level. The 1st bell rings at 8:40, students line up and teachers come out to greet them and bring them to the classroom. The students are to be in their seats and ready to learn by 8:45. 

What are the hours of the Before and After School Mascot program?

Students registered into the Mascot Program can arrive as early as 6:30 am, with the staff releasing those students to the playground by 8:30. After school the program runs as late as 6:30 pm. 

Will volunteers be working with students in the classroom this year? 

Volunteers play an important role in supporting our education programs, and this semester I plan to invite them into our classroom. These volunteer opportunities will be limited to support social distancing and will follow our current COVID-19 mitigation practices. With that being said, I realize that introducing additional adults into the classroom could cause concern. I want to assure you that we are taking necessary precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19; however, if you prefer that your student not work directly with a volunteer, please let me know.

When do I find out who is my child's teacher? 

By the afternoon of Friday, August 6th you can expect to receive a welcome email from your teacher. Note: we are working diligently to get all of the latest enrollments in by Friday. If you do not receive an email, do not fret. The office will be open and class lists will be on hand so we can send you in the right direction at Meet the Teacher on August 9th from 4:00 - 6:00 pm 

Are After-School Clubs being offered during the Fall semester?

As of now the following will be offered this semester: the Community Education Department will be offering at Sky Crossing: BEST Sports Soccer, Science Matters, Young Rembrandts, Golf, Chess, and Pop Dance. We will also be offering Robotics. Stay tuned for more.

Can I come in and have lunch with my child? 

For the 1st quarter of the school year, no PV elementary schools will be allowing parents to come in and have lunch with their students as we follow mitigation strategies. Thank you for your understanding and support. We will be reassessing this as we move through the school year.
