Welcome to Pinon USD

Yá’át’ééh! We are Piñon Unified School District. We are Diné, a proud Navajo tribal community located in the Navajo Nation of northeastern Arizona. Deeply rooted in the traditions and beliefs of our ancestors, we are an educational community committed to raising our children in the ways of our elders while embracing modern life.

We serve students in preschool through 12th grade in Piñon and the surrounding communities of Hard Rock, Forest Lake, Whippoorwill, Blue Gap, Cottonwood, Low Mountain, and Black Mesa.

A Message

Dear Piñon Families and Educators,

I am thrilled to begin working as superintendent of Piñon USD #4. On behalf of our instructional and support staff, we look forward to welcoming our community’s most precious assets, your children, into the safe harbor of our campus. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with talented, committed educators in the instruction of our students.

We recognize how important parental and family involvement is in the success of our students. In fact, we need you! We value your example, your guidance, your experience, and your wisdom. We encourage all members of our community to join hands with us as we guide our young learners down the path of education.

Working together, we will give flight to these young eagles!

Doug Vaughan
