July 24, 2020 Superintendent Letter - Welcome Back to School

Dear BUSD Families,

As you may have heard, Governor Ducey and State Superintendent Hoffman gave an update on the reopening of schools in Arizona at their press conference on July 23, 2020. The update provides that the Arizona Department of Health Services provide metrics (data trends by community) to indicate when it is safe to conduct onsite teacher-led instruction. The update also allows governing boards to consider these metrics, along with guidance from county health officials, to decide when it is safe to resume in-person, teacher-led instruction.

Based on the trends on the Tohono O’odham Nation, along with the parent and staff survey data, BUSD will ONLY be providing online learning for the first quarter (August 3-September 30, 2020). This decision also supports the BUSD governing board’s decision to go 100% virtual at their June 30, 2020 Governing Board Meeting.  

Please review my full July 24 letter for more details.

With much respect, 

Dr. Edna Morris, Superintendent
