Our Mission

A Message from our Principal

Principal Julie Case

Hello Festival Foothills Families, 

We hope that all of you are having an amazing summer! We are preparing for a great year. You can find the supply lists for the 2017-2018 school year on our school website. We will have Meet the Teacher Night on August 7, 2017, from 4:30-6:00 p.m. We hope you can attend, visit the classrooms, and meet your child(ren)’s new teacher(s). You will also be able to drop off school supplies, pick up a bus schedule, or pay towards meal accounts. As school gets closer the menu will be available online. The first day of school will be Tuesday, August 8.

We want to remind families of a few items:


  1. We serve breakfast  in the cafeteria starting at 7:40 a.m. until 7:55 a.m.
  2. School starts promptly at 8:00 a.m.
  3. Please use the lane in front of the school for dropping off and picking up students.
  4. If your child is going to be absent, please report his/her absence to the office prior to 9:00 a.m.
  5. Parents/guardians will need to sign students in that are tardy.
  6. School ends at 2:40 p.m. Monday through Thursday and at 12:10 p.m. on Fridays.

Don’t forget that incoming 6th graders who are 11 years and older will need to be up to date on their immunizations. 
If you have any questions please check our website or you may also contact the school office.
