The State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Hoffman, in collaboration with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and the Director of the Arizona Department of Health Services Dr. Cara Christ, announced that officials will use measures of our State's COVID-19 data to determine when it is safe for teachers and students to return to school campuses.
Pima County Health Department Director Dr. Theresa Cullen and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Francisco Garcia analyzed public health data and determined that it is not safe for schools to reopen in Pima County. At this point, they say the earliest possible date to safely resume traditional instruction will be after Labor Day. (See related article below) Pima JTED will notify you, and your parents/guardians, as soon as we hear any news regarding resuming in-person instruction.
Please know that news of resuming in-person instruction will likely develop quickly, therefore students must be prepared to start attending classes on campus at any point in time - with no advance warning - this semester. All staff and students will follow CDC safety protocols, including wearing masks, practicing frequent hand washing procedures, and maintaining six feet of social distance at all possible times.
