The Board of Directors of the Flagstaff Unified School District approves the local reopening in March

Carol Haden, board secretary, pleaded with parishioners to stick with recommended COVID-19 abatement practices themselves as return to school approaches.

“It’s really a community responsibility to keep these levels down,” said Haden. “To support this decision by the board of directors, the community has to really be on board and continue with all the safety precautions we have all taken all these months and not let the numbers decrease and relax. “

According to the FUSD COVID-19 dashboard, a total of 253 COVID-19 cases have been reported among FUSD staff and students in the district as of August 17, of which 43 were associated with athletics. In the past week, Marshall Elementary has only investigated two cases across the district.

If the COVID-19 numbers worsen over the course of two weeks – which is available to check out FUSD’s health updates on Friday – the board will consider a return to full distance learning.

On Tuesday, the board also approved an update to the district’s COVID-19 mitigation plan with minor adjustments to reflect the latest CDC guidelines and the start of spring sports, including allowing each student athlete to have no more than two parent or guardians at home Competitions.
