Dear Happy Valley Families

Governor Ducey and Superintendent of Schools, Kathy Hoffman, held a Press Conference yesterday to provide additional guidance, resources and clarity to help Schools plan for the 2020-2021 school year.

In his new executive order, 2020-51, he outlined additional resources and specific requirements for our schools. Our School is in the process of reviewing these guidelines and developing plans to meet state requirements. More specific details regarding our Distance Learning Plan will be release after our School has an opportunity to examine these requirements.

Happy Valley School will start school on August 5 using online learning. We remain optimistic to open our School for on-campus instruction on August 17; however, we will reevaluate our opening of school and adjust this date, as required, when the health benchmarks are release on August 7 from our county health officials. For families wishing to continue with online learning, we will continue to offer a distance learning plan for the entire 2020-2021 school year.

While we seek to provide a quality, educational experience for our students, the safety of our students and employees are of utmost importance. We will continue to work diligently to accomplish these goals.

As always, we value your partnership and appreciate your commitment, flexibility and support, as we navigate through these uncertain times.

With Appreciation,

Jeannine McDonald, Principal
