Board Delays Return to In-Person Instruction

Board Delays Return to In-Person Instruction

The Phoenix Elementary School District monitors the COVID-19 health benchmarks on a weekly basis, and the District has not yet met the approved benchmarks to reopen schools for in-person instruction.  In addition, statewide health benchmarks continue to be on the rise.

Last night, the Governing Board voted to delay the transition from distance learning to the hybrid learning model, where families may choose to return to in-person instruction until the Governing Board approved COVID-19 metrics are met.  The Board originally voted to have students return to in-person instruction on January 14, but students will remain learning online until the District achieves the Board approved metrics for all seven zip codes in which our schools reside.

The District monitors the metrics on a weekly basis and updates the district’s website every Thursday.  To follow our progress in meeting the metrics, visit the District Approved Metrics & Benchmarks page of our website.

While students remain learning online, we will continue offering on-site meal distribution every Wednesday, and the at-home meal delivery program each week for children 18 years and younger.

We will keep you informed when the district meets its health benchmarks to safely reopen schools for in-person instruction.  Thank you for your continued support of the Phoenix Elementary District.
