Message from the Superintendent Regarding Returning to School
July 31, 2020
Hello Roosevelt Community,
To begin, I would like to thank our entire Roosevelt community for your continued patience and support as our district prepares to begin the 2020-2021 academic year. Our district staff has been diligently planning to begin our school year virtually on Aug. 3, 2020, and we are eager to continue offering the highest level of innovative learning to our amazing Roosevelt students.
As many of you may know, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order last Thursday detailing new parameters for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. While our team is still working through the plans relating to these guidelines, I would like to provide you with a brief update on how Roosevelt is positioned to welcome our students and staff back for the upcoming school year.
