We hope this message finds you and your family well. School begins remotely for our students on Monday, August 3. Your student’s teacher will reach out to you to introduce themselves and let you know what to expect. During the initial remote phase, work packets and materials will be mailed home to each student. We need your help to ensure the work is completed, as it will be collected and evaluated for progress based on grade-level standards, as well as documented on student report cards.

If you have yet to return your student’s enrollment packet, please visit our website to print one out, which you can turn in by using the lockbox in front of SRES. Everyone who submits completed enrollment paperwork will be entered into a drawing to win one of several prizes, including tablets, gift cards, games, and more! If you have enrollment-related questions, please call Ms. DeClay at 480-362-2430.

Our site leaders have created a safe and effective plan to eventually reopen our school to staff and students, which the Education Board will soon review. Additionally, Salt River Schools recently launched a survey to gain insight on the effectiveness of remote learning and its impact on students and families. Please visit www.SaltRiverSchools.org to take the survey, which will help guide education-related decision making.

At this time, we are researching three learning options:

  • Remote: With this plan, every student will be issued a tablet or laptop, as well as a mobile hotspot, if needed. Teachers will provide classes virtually (on a computer) to students at home using an approved Learning Management System for students in pre-K through sixth grade.
  • On-Campus: This plan would be as close to a “normal” school environment as possible. The health and safety of all stakeholders is our primary concern. In addition to procuring Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), we will have extra hand washing stations, cleaning supplies, and we will establish updated protocols for our Health Office. Upon reopening, SRES will undergo daily deep cleaning, facemasks will be mandatory, and there will be an abundance of hand sanitizer. Passing periods and lunch times will be staggered to ensure social distancing, and we will work to incorporate recommendations from federal, state, and Community officials as they become available.
  • Hybrid: This plan offers both on-site and remote learning to reduce the number of students on campus each day.

The safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. Regardless of the plan we proceed with, our staff is prepared to quickly modify our approach should the need arise. I am available Monday through Friday by phone (please leave a voicemail) or email to address any of your questions or concerns. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Wishing you well,

Amanda Guerrero, Ed. D
