  • Kindergarten through eighth grade students who selected model B and were placed in model B1 will begin school on Monday, October 26, 2020. These students will attend in person on Mondays and Tuesdays and continue dynamic distance learning on the other school days.

Please take a moment to review our plan for reopening which includes updated safety and mitigation plans.

Return to School Waiver

We are looking forward to welcoming those students who chose to return back to our campuses starting on October 22, 2020. If your children are a part of the hybrid instructional model, please sign the attached waiver form and return it prior to your child's start date.

You can return a signed copy in the secure drop box located in front of your child's school, scanned back via email to your school using one of the addresses below, or you can contact your school if you need additional assistance getting this form signed and returned prior to your child coming on campus.

It is important that we receive this signed form as we cannot allow students on campus without it.

School emails are as follows:

Return to School Update

After carefully reviewing the data from the Maricopa County Department of Public Health, the Governing Board voted to approve a modified return to in-person classes. The motion means that students will remain in full-time distance learning through October 21 and then will begin the transition to a hybrid in-person learning model starting on Thursday, October 22. For more information, please review our Return to School Update in English or Spanish.
