March 11, 2020 - Pima County Health Department Coronavirus Update

On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, we sent a letter home with your child from the Pima County Health Department. At this time, school closures are not recommended by the Arizona Department of Health Services or any county Department of Public Health.

We will continue to ensure and emphasize hand washing during school hours. It is very important that you ensure a plan to designate a caregiver for sick children, in the event you are called by the school for your child to be picked up due to a temperature. We will not be sending students home on the bus with temperatures and in order to ensure the safety and well being of all students and staff, we are expecting students to be picked up within one hour of being called. We will keep information updated on our website and robo calls as needed.

Stay healthy and take care of yourselves!

Superintendent Rico
