Fourth Quarter Learning Announcement

March 15, 2021

Dear BUSD Families,

At last week’s governing board meeting held on March 9, 2021, the board approved the following learning system for the fourth and final quarter of this school year:

  • Remain 100% virtual until end of school year.
  • Cancel spring sports for this school year.

We based this decision on several factors:

  • Parent survey data showing majority wanting to remain virtual.
  • Staff survey data showing majority wanting to remain virtual.
  • County and TO Nation metrics still showing transmissions in the substantial range.
  • Tohono O’odham Nation’s Executive Order still in place to stay at home while BUSD desires to return and teach our children face to face, we cannot do so at this time.

Please read the entire fourth quarter learning announcement.
