Hello Roosevelt Community,
I wanted to take time to share an Important Video Message with you for the month of November (see video link below) and reiterate that our district’s top priority is the safety, health and well-being of our students, staff and community.
As you know, per our last communication, we have made the decision to remain in a virtual learning setting at least until Winter Break. We are continuing to monitor Maricopa County health data and currently the data is showing that the COVID-19 positivity rate is not only increasing in our community but also in our city, our state and across our nation.
We would like to encourage you and your family to stay vigilant during this winter/holiday season by wearing masks, maintaining social and physical distance from other people outside of your households and continuing to wash hands frequently. It’s more important now than ever in order to stop the spread of the virus.
Our district team will continue to prepare for offering multiple in-person learning setting options in mid-January, data permitting. For now, we believe that it is the right decision for our school district to remain in a virtual learning setting. Additional details and information will be provided prior to the beginning of Winter Break.
As we continue to refine our virtual learning environment to provide a high-quality experience for all students and staff, we remain committed to providing the needed support for students and families to be successful this academic year. This means ongoing support with meals, broader on-site care support at all schools and technology/internet support. Please reach out to your school campus if your family is in need of any type of support.
Additionally, in the upcoming weeks, you will receive communication from your child’s school to confirm your learning setting preference for your child -- whether you would like your child to return in-person (once that option is available based on Maricopa County data) or if you would like your child to remain learning from home in a virtual setting.
Please know that we are committed to working together to make the best decisions for all of our students, staff and families regarding a safe in-person return to school. As always, thank you for your support as we continue to make the best, most informed decisions for our district.
Be Bold. Be Well. Be Safe.
Quintin Boyce, Ed.D.
