Welcome back to a new year of school!  I know it is not what any of us had envisioned, but I hope we can all make the best of it.  Here at Ash Creek we are working hard to be sure your child has the best education possible. Ash Creek Elementary Board has given a projected start date of October 19, 2020. As we get closer we will reevaluate.

Distance Learning

Each student will have an individual class schedule.  

Morning log-on time is 8:30, Monday through Thursday except for holidays 

Attendance will be taken twice a day morning and afternoon

In accordance with Governor Ducey’s Executive Order 2020-51, all school districts are mandated to offer free onsite learning opportunities and support services beginning August 17, 2020. Further direction was given for all districts to create a plan of support for students with specific qualifications in the areas of special education, English language learning, gifted, at-risk and those in foster care. The student who come in person will not be in a classroom with teachers, but they will learn the same way other children do from home. The intention of the Governor’s Order is that we serve the most vulnerable students in our district, such as those qualifying classifications listed above.

In an effort to support our families as well as ensuring all Executive order expectations are followed Ash Creek Elementary implemented the following action plan on August 17, 2020 for Onsite Learning Support Qualifying Services.  

Ash Creek will be open for on-site learning and support Monday – Thursday 8:30-3:30  

No direct instruction will be provided. 

Transportation is not provided. 

Face coverings are required and social distancing is enforced. 

Enhanced sanitation procedures will be implemented.

Parents and Guardians,

As we enter in the new school year with so many unknowns, we are committed to providing the best and safest education for your child.

We are waiting the release of the public health metrics which should be released this Friday by the Arizona Dept. of Health Services, which will give us guidance on how to reopen. The state Superintendent of Public Instruction stated on August 3, 2020 that Arizona is not currently in a place to resume in person or hybrid learning by August 17th. So to prepare for the beginning of the school year all students may be distance learning from the start.

I will update you when I receive more information.

Padres y tutores

A medida que ingresamos al nuevo año escolar con tantas incógnitas, nos comprometemos a ofrecer la mejor y más segura educación para su hijo.

Estamos a la espera de la publicación de las métricas de salud pública que el Departamento de Servicios de Salud de Arizona debería emitir este viernes, que nos dará instrucciones sobre cómo reabrir. El 3 de agosto de 2020, el Superintendente de Instrucción Pública del estado declaró que Arizona no se encuentra actualmente en un lugar donde reanudar el aprendizaje en persona o híbrido para el 17 de agosto de 201. Así que para prepararse para el comienzo del año escolar, todos los estudiantes pueden estar aprendiendo a distancia desde el principio.

Te actualizaré cuando reciba más información.

Sra. Shepard
