  • 2019 Novel Coronavirus Message

    As you are probably aware, Maricopa County Public Health recently confirmed one case of 2019 Novel Coronavirus in Maricopa County. This individual is a member of the ASU community and risk to Maricopa County residents, including the ASU community, is believed to be low at this time. We understand that there is much concern over this new strain, and MCDPH is committed to providing the most up-to-date information at www.maricopa.gov/coronavirus. What MCDPH would like us to stress to our school community is that in addition to flu, common strains of coronaviruses are often circulating in our community. While it would not be uncommon for a child to be diagnosed from a health care provider with a coronavirus, the 2019 Novel Coronavirus is being tested for only through the CDC. This novel or new strain of coronavirus is currently only being identified in individuals who have had travel to Wuhan, China.

  • On Behalf of Lawrence Robinson, Governing Board President, Roosevelt School District No. 66

    Team- It’s always impressed me how RSD chooses to honor heroes like Dr. King and, later this spring, César Chávez. But it only makes sense: we are a community that has had to fight for what’s fair—including the right for our kids to receive a good education. As we close our national celebration of Dr. King’s leadership, it’s important to highlight the anniversary of our community coming together one year ago this month, in setting a new vision for our schools and the beginning of Dr. Boyce’s tenure as our superintendent.
