Safe Return to School

As a district, we are making decisions to ensure consistency and equity districtwide for our students. We continue to look at COVID-19 data and follow guidelines from the CDC and Maricopa County Health Department. Due to the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, the learning model options are tentative and subject to change due to federal and state guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, and their families.
