Return to In-Class Learning Update

Dear Carden parents,

Thank you for your patience and trust as we continue through life.  We are all ready to get back to normal.  But we have to be aware of the risks associated with coming back too quickly.
  
Carden of Tucson school board voted today to hold off returning to in-classroom learning until Tuesday September 8, 2020 and continuing with our on-line learning process.  Although the infection rates are getting better they are still not at a level to return to in-person school.  This decision is based on the benchmarks set forth by the Pima County Health Department on the recommendation of Governor Ducey. 
See benchmark link: https://www.azdhs.gov/documents/preparedness/epidemiology-disease-control/infectious-disease-epidemiology/novel-coronavirus/covid-19-school-benchmarks-county.pdf   Carden of Tucson board will meet on Sept 3, 2020 to confirm the county is hitting the benchmarks and we can start in class on the Sept 8.
 
While the reopening of Carden for in-person classroom learning appears to be a few weeks out still, the District will begin to provide free learning opportunities and on-site support services for students who need a place to go during the day, as per the Executive Order. These support services begin Monday, August 17 and are intended to serve our more vulnerable students, including those with special education services, and those in care of the Arizona Department of Child Safety, including Foster Care. If you believe your student is in need of these targeted support services, please contact the office.
 
We will all need to continue being flexible and adaptable to change. Furthermore, we will continue to monitor the data and consult with public health experts in the ongoing evaluation of the information and determination of when it is safe to move on to the more traditional school norms with all students attending.
 
The health and well-being of our Carden community is always going to be our first priority.  We understand that this is a tough situation for our students, families and staff but we feel that this is best for the health of everyone in the Carden community.  Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. 
 
Thank you again for your patience and trust. 
Mr. Moore
