Please Keep Our Students, Families & Staff Safe

The governor has closed all Arizona schools from now through April 10, 2020. As a result, we are asking all students, families, and staff members to please abide by the following guidelines.

  • Please, do not come on campus during this time. This includes community areas such as playgrounds, tennis courts, and the weight room. 
  • There will be no sporting events or student activities during the school closure.
  • We do not have any food service at this time.

Due to coronavirus concerns, our campus will be thoroughly cleaned Thursday, March 26, 2020, and Friday, March 27, 2020.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Superintendent Arleen Kennedy or Principal Andrew Brogan.

Please remember that the best way to combat any illness is to take proactive precautions of cleanliness. Also, participating in testing if you believe you have any symptoms is a great preventative. Please be safe and let us know if we can assist you.

Coronavirus Information

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are writing to provide you information about the coronavirus, COVID-19, and the district’s efforts to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an update in which they stated that, despite confirmed cases of the coronavirus within the U.S., the risk to the general American public remains low. We are working closely with Cochise County Health Officials and other county agencies to monitor the situation and develop a coordinated and comprehensive public health plan to ensure we have prepared if cases arise in our community.

As a best practice for overall health during cold and influenza season, the CDC recommends that individuals receive the influenza vaccination and engage in preventive measures to prevent the spread of germs and avoid illness. Please take a moment to read our coronavirus informational letter to parents.

Talking to Children about COVID-19

The coronavirus is causing an outbreak of respiratory (lung) disease. With China as the first detection, it is now spreading internationally. While the immediate health risk in the United States is low, it is important to plan for any possible outbreaks if the risk level increases. Concern over this new virus can make children and families anxious. While there are still a lot of unknowns, we do know that it is contagious. Also, the severity of the illness can vary from individual to individual. There are steps we can take to prevent the spread of infection. Acknowledging some level of concern, without panicking, is appropriate and can result in taking actions that reduce the risk of illness. Helping children cope with anxiety requires providing accurate prevention tips and facts. It is important to remember that children look to adults for guidance on how to react to stressful events. For more information on how to help your child cope with this virus, please view this flyer from the National Association of School Psychologists.
