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. 

Parking 

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

 

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

 

2022-23 ATHLETICS REGISTRATION 

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.

All high school athletes must complete the NFHS Concussion in Sports course and Opioid Awareness course once during their high school career. Incoming 9th graders wanting to take part in SUSD athletics while in 9th grade must complete both courses before they are allowed to participate. Click here for those courses.
