Dear Glendale High School Parents/Guardians:

COVID-19 DATA FOR 85301

As we notified you last week, if a GUHSD school moves into red for one or more categories, the local school administration would prepare for the possibility of the transition from hybrid to remote learning.  Additionally, we informed you that if a school stays red for two consecutive weeks, the school would be moved from hybrid learning to a remote learning model.  

As of today, Glendale High School is red for the second consecutive week and does not meet the requirement needed to continue our hybrid learning model.

Based on this information, Glendale High School will return to Virtual/Remote Learning from Home with Online/Safe Space Support.

NEXT STEPS

Beginning tomorrow - Friday, November 13:

Glendale High School students will not return to campus for hybrid learning.

Students will return to learning remotely from home until the school meets the criteria to safely transition back into the hybrid learning model.

Student schedules will remain the same as they learn remotely from home.

Food service will be available for pickup, Monday-Friday, from 2-4 pm.

Onsite space support centers, offered in accordance with Governor Ducey’s Executive Order 2020-51, will continue to be available to students who need a safe place to go for remote learning during the day.

We recognize the impact this decision has on our families; however, we believe it is the best one for the health and safety of our students and staff members. We will continue to monitor the health benchmarks and will continue to provide updates to our families. Please feel free to contact the school at 623-435-6200 if you have questions or concerns.

PROCESS FOR MOVING FROM HYBRID TO REMOTE

If a GUHSD school moves into red for one or more categories, the local school administration will prepare for the possibility of the transition from hybrid to remote learning.
s stated in the district’s communication.

Our school community is currently in the red in two of the categories.  

If the numbers for our school are still in the red category next Thursday, the two consecutive week requirement to move from hybrid to remote learning will be met.

We will communicate with you on Thursday our plan for Friday.

The shift back to remote learning will not affect classes or the schedule.

The difference will be that students will be learning from home 5 days per week in the remote model.

Again, this possible change is contingent upon the release of next week’s data.  We will communicate with you again next Thursday, November 12, to notify you if Glendale High School will be staying in the hybrid model or transitioning back to a remote learning model.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

Please make sure to help reduce the spread in our community by following preventative measures such as:

staying home when sick,

washing hands frequently,

not participating in large gatherings,

practicing physical distancing, and

wearing a cloth face mask.

Reducing the spread is imperative for our school to continue with our hybrid learning model.

Please contact us at 623-435-6206 with any questions you may have.
