In-Person Health Reminders

posted Mar 25, 2021, 3:16 PM by Kira Alexander

There was an outdial sent to all families as a reminder of the health protocols for returning to in-person learning. Thank you for your attention and cooperation.
If your child exhibits any of the following symptoms: fever, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea or any other symptoms of illness, whether or not you believe it's related to COVID-19, you will need to keep them home for at least 24 hours and until symptoms are no longer happening.
Please know that in light of Governor Ducey's executive order relaxing mask restrictions for some places, his order for masks at all schools is still in effect. 

AZDHS Emergency Measure 2020-04 is still in effect, requiring masks in all K12 schools. Masking is one of the top mitigation strategies for safe in-person learning as recommended by the CDC.

Masks must be worn on school campuses, on school buses and during school-associated activities by all students, faculty, staff, contractors, and visitors.
