Laveen schools serve free or reduced-price lunches to families that qualify based on income requirements.
Families must reapply annually. If you qualified last year your eligibility expires September 17. Please reapply at EZMealApp.com or complete a paper application at your school’s front office or cafeteria. All families are encouraged to apply. Applications are processed year round and are kept confidential.
Families that meet federal income levels may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Lunches are currently priced at $2.30; the reduced price is $.40. Breakfast is served free to all students, regardless of eligibility, before school each day.
In addition to receiving a discount on meal prices, completed applications provide additional funds to the district in the form of grant money. Funding for prevention programs, parent training, and interventions for students in reading and math is often based on the number of students qualified for free or reduced–price lunch.

The Arizona Department of Health Services requires that all 11-year-old children entering sixth grade obtain two adolescent vaccines, Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4), or provide a valid exemption. These new immunizations are important as they will provide protection against serious illness.
Tdap is a combination vaccine that provides protection against three bacterial diseases — Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Whooping Cough). Meningococcal prevents against four types of bacterial meningitis.
Parents should review their child’s immunization records. If these vaccinations have not been received, the child should obtain the vaccination at either their doctor’s office or an immunization clinic. Proof of immunizations will need to be received before the student can begin school on August 6.
Students who do not have these required shots, or a valid exemption, will not be allowed to start school. Children who are not yet 11 will be required to get the new immunizations once they turn 11.

Vista del Sur student Angel Molina is a recipient of the Gila River Indian Community’s Chief Azul Scholar Award. The Chief Azul Scholar Award is given to students who personify Chief Azul’s leadership and educational ability. The students were chosen based on grade point average, attendance, behavior, accomplishments and extracurricular activities.
Chief Azul was known for leading the tribe during a turbulent time, through Mexican jurisdiction, the Gadsden Purchase, and keeping the Gila River Indian Community from being relocated to Oklahoma.
Angel was honored at a recent banquet held at the Vee Quiva Hotel and Casino’s Event Center. Read the article from the Gila River Indian News.
Due to a facilities issue, Vista del Sur’s office will be closed June 7-11. Vista staff may be reached at Paseo Pointe School, 602-304-2040 Thursday and Monday.
