Good Afternoon Roosevelt Families,
Today, Governor Doug Ducey rescinded orders that direct K-12 schools to require masks. However, K-12 school districts still maintain the right to institute and enforce policies to mitigate against COVID-19 spread, including the use of masks.
At this time, the Roosevelt School District will continue to enforce the district’s mask policy and require all staff, students and visitors to wear face masks at all times.
Safety is our highest priority and we will continue to work together to mitigate the spread of the virus, including wearing face coverings, washing hands with soap and warm water; using hand sanitizer; cleaning and maintaining healthy facilities; and staying home when sick.
At the end of March, we welcomed students back to in-person learning at all 19 of our schools. Our teachers and staff were so excited to see them come back and took great care to make sure that they were able to stay healthy while they were back. Some of our principals and students put in their own words what that week meant to them.
Our district provides resources, workshops and events to help our families thrive. During this pandemic, it's even more important for us to come together and help each other. We will continue to update the Family & Community Engagement Workshop page frequently with new, virtual workshops and events. As you will notice, some of the virtual events are district-wide for all parents and families to attend and some are school based.
As part of Read Across America week, Valley View Leadership Academy students were able to meet FrightVision author Culliver Crantz. The students worked together to create a vision board for a scary story called, "The Lake House," featuring the main character, "Mr. LaPrise." After creating the "FrightVision" students were able to ask the author questions.
T.G. Barr principal, Ashley Hargrave and social worker Wendy Harris, have partnered with a nonprofit organization called For Goodness Cakes that provides birthday cakes to underserved communities. They have provided birthday cakes for each student.
We celebrated School Social Work Week from March 8 through March 12 by recognizing them and the amazing work they do in our schools and our communities. Additionally, Arizona State University honored our RSD social workers at an event on March 12.
