March 31, 2020 - School Closure Update

March 31, 2020 

Dear San Carlos USD Students, Parents, Grandparents, Families, Staff, & Community:

On Monday, March 30, 2020, Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman made the announcement of their decision for all Arizona public schools, including our San Carlos Unified School District, to remain closed for the remainder of the school year.

Although this is devastating news because we know school is where our students learn best, we also understand the importance of keeping everyone safe. We certainly want our students, staff, and our families to stay healthy, and so we support the decision announced by the State of Arizona.

Please take a moment to read our March 31 Community Letter in its entirety.
