Greetings Yavapai Accommodation School District Families:

Our school calendar has been changed! You can view the updated calendar here. We will be starting school online on August 10th and continuing online until students are allowed to return to the school building. Right now, students might be allowed to return to the school building on August 17th on a modified schedule but this date will likely be pushed to a later date. We will let you know of changes. It is vitally important that all students start online on August 10th instead of waiting until the school buildings open. We are reaching out to find out what immediate needs your family has in order to make online learning doable in your homes. Do you need a computer, a hotspot to connect to the internet, an internet connection in your home, or paper packets? We would like to assist in getting this set up for you as soon as possible so your student is ready to tackle online learning on August 10th when we return. Our reopening plans will be sent to you in the mail soon. You can also find this information on our website and Facebook page in the next couple of days.

If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Kellie Burns directly at 928 642 2109.

COVID 19 Updates for YASD

6-29-2020 – Governor Ducey, Executive Order Update

We have just been told that the Executive Order issued by the Governor today allows schools to open as usual but delays starting in-person classes until August 17th. Distance learning and AOI programs could be provided. We have been told that this will allow districts to pay employees and would allow district calendars to start as scheduled and not require extra days to be added to the calendar.

Governor Ducey, Superintendent Hoffman Announce Extension Of School Closures Through End Of School Year

News Release

March 30, 2020
 

PHOENIX⁠ — Governor Doug Ducey and Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman today announced the extension of Arizona school closures through the end of the school year. The extension follows updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and an announcement from the White House extending physical distancing guidelines until April 30, 2020. 

Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman released the following joint statement:

“In alignment with yesterday’s updated federal guidance, today we are announcing the extension of school closures through the remainder of the school year. Today’s announcement is intended to give parents and educators as much certainty as possible so they can plan and make decisions. While this isn’t the outcome any of us wanted, we are grateful for the partnership of schools around the state, who have stepped up to offer virtual and take-home learning opportunities for our students. These efforts are crucial, and we recognize that schools are making every effort possible to continue providing instruction during closures. We also thank our legislative partners for passing legislation ensuring all educators and staff see no disruption in pay. Our number one priority will continue to be health and safety, and we will continue to work closely with public health officials to make the best decisions for kids, families, and our school communities.”

On March 27, Governor Ducey signed legislation to support schools during closures, ensure school letter grades are held harmless, suspend statewide testing requirements, ensure school days are not extended into the summer, require learning opportunities for students to continue, and ensure teachers and staff see no disruption in pay as a result of COVID-19.

That same week, the Governor joined Superintendent Hoffman to launch Arizona Enrichment Centers, which will offer childcare for first responders, critical healthcare workers, and essential public sector workers, including child safety workers.

Additional information about meals for kids, childcare, special education considerations, learning resources for families and educators and more can be found at azed.gov.

Today’s announcement applies to Arizona public schools, both district and charter. Private schools are required to remain closed in alignment with federal guidance recommending closures through at least April 30, 2020. School leaders have the option of announcing closures through the end of the year, or waiting for additional guidance.
