Hybrid Learning Resumes March 1

Students who selected the Flexible Learning Option (Hybrid) will return to on-campus instruction beginning March 1. 

The local Laveen community is still experiencing substantial spread of the virus. The district has reviewed and updated the mitigation strategies and believe we have strong practices to prevent the spread of on campus. However, we are dependent on our families to help ensure these practices are followed so that our schools may remain open.

Most importantly, we ask you to keep your child home if they are not feeling well or have been exposed to someone infected with COVID-19. Properly-fitting masks, that cover both the nose and mouth, must be worn while on campus. And, students are asked to be mindful of social distancing.

As a reminder, all students returning on-site must have a signed COVID Acknowledgement Form on file. Parents may sign this form through their ParentVue account.

Laveen has established school-based metrics to determine if a classroom or campus must transition to virtual learning. These metrics, as well as other information related to the return to hybrid learning may be found on our website, www.LaveenSchools.org/Return-to-Laveen.

A few additional reminders for your child’s return:

  • Students returning to campus should bring their charged Chromebook and reusable water bottle with them on March 1.
  • Students who will be utilizing bus transportation must be registered for bus service through our Transportation Department. Students who were registered last semester do not need to register again.
  • Breakfast and lunch will continue to be served free to all students for the rest of the school year, thanks to a waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
