As many of you may have heard the Ash Fork School Governing Board met Tuesday evening to discuss the best way to provide adequate and effective education while keeping our students, staff, and community safe. After hearing from many individuals and looking at all statistics and scenarios, the Board decided to return to a hybrid model of instruction November 30th, the Monday we return from Thanksgiving Break. The motion also directed the district Superintendent to provide a weekly report on Covid-19 trends and statistics that affect Ash Fork, and that any extreme situations will trigger an emergency board meeting to discuss strategies and changes if necessary. The goal of the Governing Board and administration is to return to a full-time traditional educational model but felt the hybrid model was a good compromise for the current conditions. The hybrid model will be similar to the hybrid model we activated earlier in the school year but with a few changes. Middle School will be ending the day at their regular time of 4:00 pm and Elementary hybrid will no longer be half a day all week, but rather a full day twice a week. Teachers will be sending home information on student schedules for this hybrid model with your student. Our District office will also have a master schedule if you do not receive information from your child. On behalf of the school district we’d like to thank all of our families for doing their part in helping us all get through this very interesting period in our lives.
No School November 23rd-26th School will resume hybrid model on November 30th!!
The school board has voted unanimously to move back into a hybrid model, beginning the Monday after Thanksgiving Break (11/30/2020). The Governing Board will be provided with weekly updates of all COVID-19 trends and statistics. The Governing Board will look at this data to decide whether to move back into traditional in person or distance learning. In addition all extreme COVID-19 cases will also be reported to the Governing Board. Students who have no place to go during the times that they are not scheduled to be at school, may request to be on campus. It is the goal of the Governing Board to have our students 100% on campus in the traditional learning model.
