Information on this page is subject to change based on COVID-19 and direction from the Governor, Arizona Department of Health Services, and the Arizona Department of Education.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) recommend that reopening and closure decisions be driven by the current prevalence of COVID-19 in the community. FUSD will operate In-Person Learning when it is safe to do so or will transition to Flexible Remote Learning when the need arises due to COVID-19 at the classroom, school, or district levels. Decisions will be made in collaboration with the Governing Board, Superintendent, and in coordination with the Arizona Department of Health Services and Coconino County Health and Human Services.
On August 6, 2020, the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), in partnership with the Arizona Department of Education (ADE), released guidance to be used in conjunction with the Roadmap to Reopening Schools released in June 2020 to support the safe reopening of schools while reducing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 among students and staff.
Both the District’s mitigation plan and degree of community spread of COVID-19 are equally important in determining when it is safe to reopen or close a school building/district. The 2021-22 FUSD Mitigation Plan, outlining health and safety mitigation measures, as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), intended to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 to students and staff prior to the opening of its school buildings for on-site support services or in-person instruction was approved by the Governing Board on July 13, 2021, and is posted on the District’s website.
