The situation around COVID-19 is rapidly changing, so please continue to check this page for updates and guidance. This page was last updated on Friday, August 7, 2020, at 4:10 PM.

Per Executive Order 2020-51,  the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) created public health criteria to be used by schools to determine when it is safe to reopen for traditional in-person classroom instruction. You can find these metrics in the first tab below.
