TUHSD closes all school campuses until further notice

March 13, 2020 – As a result of recent announcements for school closures – including TUHSD feeder schools at Kyrene School District and Tempe Elementary School District – TUHSD will close its seven campuses to students beginning Monday, March 16, 2020.

“Because we work in a collaborative, tri-district manner, we feel that this is the best decision for our students, families, teachers, and staff,” said Superintendent Kevin Mendivil. “Our students are always our biggest priority. It is never a positive thing to interrupt the learning process and the continuity of programming within our schools. But we understand the necessity at this time in responding to the potential for community spread of COVID-19.”

District Administration have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation since January. TUHSD will continue to closely monitor on a daily basis to make the best determination for when school might resume. All school activities, athletics, and events are also cancelled until further notice.

Additional information regarding plans for staffing, continuity in meal programs, and answers to other FAQ’s is planned for release on Monday, March 16.
