Dear Champion Families,

I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy in this challenging time.

At the request of Superintendent Hoffman and the Educational Community, Governor Ducey asked that the Arizona State Department of Public Health develop a plan for the SAFE return to in-person instruction for schools. This Report was due on August 7, 2020. Thus Champion Schools’ Leadership met with the Arizona Dept. of Health and over 1000 other school leaders last Friday. The message was clear. No counties in the state of Arizona currently meet the metrics required for a SAFE return to in-person instruction. The Arizona Dept. of Health set the following benchmarks for the SAFE RETURN TO HYBRID (Virtual and In-Person) LEARNING:

● CASES: a two-week decline in the number of cases can be used to meet this benchmark or two-week of a case rate of less than 100 cases per 100,000 population;

● PERCENT POSITIVITY: for initial opening, two weeks of percent positivity less than 7% within the county; and

● COVID-LIKE ILLNESS (CLI): two weeks of hospital visits due to CLI below 10%.

For additional information & the schools dashboard, visit azhealth.gov/schoolsCOVID19

In order to OPEN SAFELY and STAY OPEN, we are now planning for all students to begin school at 8:00am on Aug. 17th, VIRTUALLY. Students who need special support services ie: Special Education, EL Instruction, or simply need a Safe Place to Learn, must contact their teacher or school administrator to request these accommodations. Meals will be available for pick up.

JUMP START begins August 10th, as an orientation for Students and Parents on how to access Virtual Learning. All sessions will be recorded and made available to ALL Students and Parents. We look forward to welcoming students back in-person as soon as we are able to do so safely.

Sincerely,

Ms. C. Sawyer MA

Estimadas familias de Champion,

Espero que esta carta los encuentre a usted y a sus seres queridos seguros y saludables en este momento difícil.

A petición de la Superintendente Hoffman y la Comunidad Educativa, el Gobernador Ducey pidió que el Departamento de Salud Pública del Estado de Arizona desarrollara un plan para el regreso seguro a la enseñanza en persona para las escuelas. Este informe debía presentarse el 7 de agosto de 2020. Así, el Liderazgo de Champion Schools se reunió con el Departamento de Salud de Arizona y más de 1000 otros líderes escolares el viernes pasado. El mensaje era claro. Ningún condado en el estado de Arizona actualmente cumple con las métricas requeridas para un retorno seguro a la instrucción en persona. El D epartamento de Salud de Arizona estableció los siguientes puntos de referencia para el APRENDIZAJE SEGURO DE DEVOLUCIÓN (Virtual y En Persona):

• CASOS: se puede utilizar una disminución de dos semanas en el número de casos para cumplir con este punto de referencia o dos semanas de una tasa de casos de menos de 100 casos por cada 100,000 habitantes;

• PORCENTAJE POSITIVO: Para la apertura inicial, dos semanas de porcentaje de positividad inferior al 7% dentro del condado; Y

• ENFERMEDAD TIPO COVID (CLI): dos semanas con visitas al hospital debido a CLI por debajo del 10%

Para obtener información adicional y el panel de las escuelas, visite azhealth.gov/schoolsCOVID19

Para ABRIR SEGURAMENTE Y MANTENERNOS ABIERTOS, ahora estamos planeando que todos los estudiantes comiencen la escuela a las 8:00 am el 17 de agosto, VIRTUALMENTE. Los estudiantes que necesitan servicios de apoyo especiales, por ejemplo: Educación Especial, Instrucción EL, o simplemente necesitan un Lugar Seguro para Aprender, deben comunicarse con su maestro o administrador de la escuela para solicitar estas adaptaciones. Las comidas estarán disponibles para ser recogidas.

JUMP START comienza el 10 de agosto, como una orientación para estudiantes y padres sobre cómo acceder al Aprendizaje Virtual. Todas las sesiones serán grabadas y puestas a disposición de TODOS los estudiantes y padres. Esperamos dar la bienvenida a los estudiantes en persona tan pronto como podamos hacerlo de manera segura.

Sinceramente,

Ms. C. Sawyer MA
Superintendente
