• 5:30 pm Update:

    Dear Betty Fairfax Families,

    This afternoon, campus administration received a tip about a possible weapon on campus. Out of an abundance of caution, the campus was placed on lockdown while local authorities investigated the claims. Our top priority is always the safety of our students and staff. At no time were students in danger, and no weapon was found. We thank the Phoenix Police Department for its immediate response and investigation. 

    Thank you to our families for your patience and continued trust in Betty Fairfax High School throughout this process. If students need additional support, staff will be available in the coming days. 

    If parents have additional questions, please contact our front office at (602) 764-9000.

    Estimadas familias de Fairfax,

    Esta tarde, la administración escolar recibió una pista de una posible arma dentro del plantel. Por precaución, el plantel fue puesto en aislamiento mientras las autoridades locales investigaban la alegación. Nuestra más alta prioridad es la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal. En ningún momento los estudiantes estuvieron en peligro, y ninguna arma fue encontrada. Le damos las gracias al departamento de policía de Phoenix por su respuesta inmediata e investigación. 

    Gracias a nuestras familias durante este proceso por su paciencia y confianza continua en Betty Fairfax. Si los estudiantes necesitan apoyo adicional, personal de apoyo adicional estará disponible en los próximos días.

    Si los padres tienes pregunta adicionales, por favor llame a nuestra oficina principal al 602-764-9000.
