school and district Communications

As messages are sent to parent email addresses by Chaparral or SUSD Administrative staff, we'll compile them here.  Click to download the original pdfs. 


Please note that in some years, students have come to campus before the first day of school to pick up textbooks or pay fees.  This year all registration will be done online and students will be taken to the bookstore by teachers during the first few days of school to pick up textbooks. The campus will be open from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm on August 1st and 2nd if parents and students would like to walk through student schedules, however. Maps will be available to help explore the campus.

Summer reading

Students in 9th and 10th grade Honors-level English, AP Lang, or AP Lit have been assigned summer reading.  You can see the full list here

School Supplies

There is no set school supply list for students. During the first week of school, teachers will distribute a class syllabus and let students know what, if any, special supplies are required. Generally speaking, most students will need folders for each class; plenty of looseleaf paper; several college-ruled composition books; red, blue, and black pens; pencils and erasers; and a few colors of highlighters.  

Student Lockers

Most students choose not to use lockers at Chap, instead just carrying everything they need in their backpacks.  


Ninth graders are usually given the opportunity to sign up for an on-campus locker if they'd like to use one, and all PE students will be assigned a locker in the changing room and be given the opportunity to purchase a combination lock.  

Annual Student Registration/Data Verification

Registration (Annual Verification) begins on-line July 25th. Annual Verification is a process by which Parents/Guardians confirm certain information about themselves and their student(s) for district records. This is done on-line by clicking here. You'll be asked to confirm or update the following information:

Home Address

Parent Contact Information

Emergency Contacts 

Code of Conduct and Information Release

Heath Form

Student Schedules

Once the annual verification is completed, student schedules will be available to review on ParentVue and StudentVue.  The campus will be open from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm on August 1st and 2nd if parents and students would like to walk through student schedules. Maps will be available to help explore the campus.


Counselors will be available in the library the following dates and times for schedule corrections. Please note there will be no teacher changes or period changes and any corrections will be based on availability. Schedule corrections will only be made in-person, not via email.

Tuesday, July 26 and Friday July 29 - 8am-10:30am

Monday, August 1 - 11:30am-2pm

Tuesday, August 2 - 8am-10:30pm


Once school starts, counselors will only be available for schedule corrections in the library during lunch. Students will only be seen during the school day if they are missing a class period.

The first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 3. The day will begin with a Ninth Grade Welcome and Orientation from 7:45-11:14 and lunch for Ninth grade only from 11:14-11:45.  All other students should plan to come to campus for the afternoon only, during which all grades, 9-12, will follow an abbreviated schedule.

Back to school night

transportation, drop-off, and parkinG

Bus Routes

Bus routes can be accessed through the SUSD Transportation Department website. Please contact the SUSD Transportation Department at 480-484-8550 with any questions or visit their website for more information.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up

For student drop-off and pick-up, enter the East Parking Lot off 70th street near the nurse's office and administration building.  The Auditorium Parking Lot on Gold Dust avenue is for buses only.  When dropping off your student, please use the right-hand lane.  All cars must turn right, heading south, when exiting the parking lot.  Left turns are not permitted during drop-off and pick-up times.  Please see this map for more details.  We encourage you to arrive early or drop off your student farther from school to avoid the crowds.  Please do not park in any student parking spots, even if they appear to be available. 


Seniors were given the opportunity to purchase parking passes in May and would have received email confirmation of their purchase before the end of the school year.  Watch for more information from the school about parking pass pick-up for seniors. It's usually in late July.


Students who park off campus should be sure they're parking in permissible areas.  The visitor lot (in front of the nurse's office), the teacher lot (in front of the auditorium), and Barton House are not available for student parking.


All student parking spots have been assigned to students who have registered and paid for parking.  Students and parents may not park in any spot other than that assigned to them. Many seniors have late-start schedules, so spots may appear to be available, but they are not. 


School Lunches

Lunch menus are posted here. Students can purchase lunch or snacks using their ID. Funds can be added to student accounts using Titan School Solutions. For more information about pricing and menus, visit SUSD's Nutrition Services site.  


During the past school year, all students received free lunch. However, for the 2022-2023 school year, families must fill out an application for free or reduced lunch. The program is confidential. The easy online application can be found at:


Chaparral is a closed campus; students may not have lunches delivered by restaurants or through services like DoorDash or UberEats. 



For the 2022-2023 school year, Athletics will begin in early August and SUSD will continue to use Register My Athlete. In order to participate in high school or middle school Athletics, there are specific requirements your student will need to meet and that you will need to upload to Register My Athlete.
