Letter Regarding Incident Near Our Mesa Campus

Dear Parents and Students,

We would like to address and clarify details of the incident that occurred just outside of the Pinnacle Charter High School – Mesa Campus on Thursday, September 24. At approximately 11:35 a.m., during the passing period between the morning and afternoon sessions, a male student was assaulted and sustained injuries that later resulted in his death. The assailant was not a Pinnacle student.

Immediately after the incident, staff assisted the injured student, secured the premises, and took appropriate actions to provide for the safety and well being of all students at the school. Afternoon and evening sessions were cancelled for the day.

On behalf of everyone at Pinnacle Charter High School and Pinnacle Education, we want to express our deepest sympathies to the family of the student. Our thoughts and prayers will remain with the family during this difficult time.

We want to assure you that Pinnacle is committed to providing a safe and secure school environment for our students.  Should you have any questions or concerns related to this issue, please direct your inquires to Dr. Michael Matwick at (480) 755-8222.
