Continental School District No. 39, home of the Continental Colts, has served families in the Green Valley area since 1916. Continental School’s name came from the Intercontinental Rubber Company, established in the area at the request of President Woodrow Wilson, during World War I. Our unique location, at the base of Madera Canyon, offers unobstructed views of the truly unique desert landscape. The district has always been committed to educational excellence and celebrated its 100th year in 2016.
Green Valley was established as a retirement community in the 1960’s and now boasts a thriving population of over 21,000 people. While Green Valley is still predominately a retirement community, there are approximately 200 families whose children attend Continental School. Our school and the community work hand in hand for the betterment of the community and the students at Continental.
Our students benefit from the experiences of a wide range of community and parent volunteers who actively assist with a variety of clubs, special programs, after-school sports, and activities. This special bond between our students and our many volunteers make our district a truly unique place to be.
We are still preparing and planning for the return of our students as soon as possible.
We will be sending a letter out in mid-July inquiring about your “intent to send your child to school”. This will help us to ensure we are prepared for your children (in-person or online)
Thank you for your patience as we work through the logistics of reopening our school.

Stay safe and take care,
Ms. Roxana Rico, Superintendent
Dear Continental Colts, Families and Community Members,
It is with great pride that I continue to serve as your Superintendent.
First and foremost, I want to thank you for your support during school closure. All of you did an amazing job in your efforts to continue on-line learning, staying healthy, and in doing what needed to be done to get us through the school year. Your commitment to your children and continued learning is to be commended.
A special THANK YOU to our amazing Parent Teacher Club, 8th grade and Kindergarten parents and staff, Continental Foundation, IT Director, and Tech Club Sponsors for assisting in our promotion ceremonies. Your help and contributions truly made the end of year celebrations possible and memorable for our students.
As stated in our Mission Statement, we will continue to provide a community environment in which ALL individuals are challenged to achieve excellence in academics, character, and life skills.
During these difficult and uncertain times, we will also continue to strive to create diverse, culturally competent educators and staff who will provide the necessary services for students to overcome the trauma of COVID-19 and the racial inequities that have surfaced in the last months. We will be mindful of the social and emotional needs of our students, staff, parents, and community as a whole.
Our continued priority will be to ensure that our students feel safe, valued, and supported in our school. We will stick together and continue to be the cohesive Continental Colt family that we are. BETTER TOGETHER!
Take care of each other, and thank you again for your support.
Your Proud Superintendent,
