SAHUARITA, Ariz. (KGUN) — With COVID cases rising in Arizona, Sahuarita Unified schools are moving to full remote learning for two weeks after winter break.

Remote learning will begin the first two weeks of the second semester between January 4-15, 2021, for all students grades K-12, according to SUSD. On-campus learning services will remain available. The Early Childhood Center and the L.I.N.K. program will be closed.

SUSD says the decision to go remote follows public health official recommendations and to create a safeguard for post-holiday COVID cases.

“Please know that this determination was not made lightly. I understand that in-person learning is the best model for most children and that there are important considerations and concerns when operating in full remote learning. That is why we were among the first districts in Pima County to launch in-person hybrid learning and corresponding programs, “ said Dr. Valenzuela, Superintendent, Sahuarita Unified School District. “However, the preponderance of evidence suggests that this is the reasonable and prudent step to take at this particular point in time. ”

All grades are planned to return to hybrid in-person learning Tuesday, January 19, 2021.
