Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman announced the extended closure of Arizona schools until the end of the 2019–2020 school year as a necessary step in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

Although all school sites and activities will remain closed through the end of the school year, the at-home learning opportunities which have been communicated by your student's school will continue as planned. 

Meal services for students will also continue throughout the remainder of the school year.
