Is school closed until the end of the year?
Yes, Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman have announced an extension of school closures through the end of the 2019-2020 School Year. As a result, our schools, school offices, district office, grounds and fields are closed to the public until further notice (except food service and certain curriculum pickup).
If school is closed, does that mean we have no schoolwork or are not required to take any classes?

Fortunately, Skyline Education, Inc. and its family of schools is prepared to help you, or your student continue to receive a quality education remotely.
