    AZ Schools Closed for Remainder of 2019-2020 School Year – Kyrene Learn At Home

    Dear Kyrene Community,

    Governor Doug Ducey and State Superintendent Kathy Hoffman have just announced that all Arizona school districts will remain closed through the end of the school year. Kyrene School District has been preparing for the possibility of extended closures, and plans are in place to continue student learning from home for the remainder of the school year. Phase 2 of Kyrene’s distance learning program is now underway, as shared with families in a previous message.

    Last Friday, the Governor signed legislation to help support school districts in the event of an extended closure. This support includes suspension of statewide testing requirements, assurance that schools will not need to extend our calendars into the summer, and funding to support continued employee pay.

    For complete information about how school closures impact Kyrene families and staff, please visit www.kyrene.org/911. There, you will find educational resources for children, detailed information about meal service, answers to frequently asked questions, health and safety resources, and a complete catalog of all Kyrene communications related to COVID-19 and school closures.

    Thank you for your continued patience and support during these unprecedented times.
