Dear FHUSD Parents, Guardians, and Friends,
There have been two announcements from government officials today, March 30, 2020, regarding the extension of school closures and now a “Stay, Home, Stay Healthy” Executive Order from Governor Ducey.
The first announcement this morning from Governor Ducey and State Superintendent Kathy Hoffman announced the extension of school closures through the end of the school year.
The second announcement issued as an Executive Order this afternoon called “Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected” is an advanced physical distancing order listing only essential activities for the public to engage in effective March 31 at 5:00 p.m.
Both of these announcements deeply affect the FHUSD community. While we have begun online, remote, and supplemental instructional practices, these directives from the Governor will impact the types and duration of the services we provide as we move forward. Please see updated messages from your school principals concerning additional computer devices available to be distributed, wifi access, and continued breakfast/lunch distribution that attempts to fall within the physical distancing order. There will be many unanswered questions at this time, but we will continue to keep you informed as decisions are made at every level.
We are committed to providing students with continued learning opportunities and access to instructional content that follows the directives from the state. It is critical that you stay connected with your school through website notices, email, and the Google and Seesaw platforms used to connect with students.
Thank you for your understanding, and I wish good health for everyone during this extended period.
Robert Allen, Ed.D.
