Governor Ducey Delays Start of School

Today, June 29, 2020 ​Governor Ducey issued an executive order delaying the opening of schools for in-person instruction until August 17. 

Combs has been working diligently to prepare a comprehensive Pandemic Response Plan, which will still be released tomorrow, outlining our safe and healthy return to school. This document has been developed with anticipated changes as COVID-19 continues to evolve.  District administration will also meet to finalize a new start date and present a recommendation to the Governing Board at the July 8, 2020 meeting. This will allow a modified calendar to be approved.   
As stated in the Executive Order, in-person learning may not start until August 17, 2020, but virtual learning may begin prior to this date.  In early July, families will receive ongoing communication regarding official start dates and details regarding instructional options.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to keep our students and staff safe.
