More Tucson-area school districts transition to hybrid learning Monday

TUCSON (KVOA) – As we continue to navigate through the coronavirus pandemic, more local students and teachers are headed back to the classroom today.

On Monday, Amphitheater Public SchoolsFlowing Wells Unified School DistrictSahuarita Unified School District and Tanque Verde Unified School District are all transitioning more students to a hybrid learning platform.

As we know, many area school districts have remained in fully-remote instruction since the holidays. And, many were only supposed to for two weeks, but pushed it back.

Tucson-area school districts like Marana USDCatalina Foothills SDVail Schools, Sahaurita USD and Tanque Verde USD have already had students back into the classrooms.

But, Tanque Verde and Sahuarita have had only some grades.

As of Monday, it will be all grades for those districts. Flowing Wells and Amphi are transitioning all grades to hybrid instruction starting Monday. All of this is only if the students chose not to stay remote, which each of the school districts will continue to give them the option to do so if it makes them feel more comfortable.

"What I really want parents to know at this point is that we deeply care about their student," said Dr. Roseanne Lopez, Amphi's Associate Superintendent for Elementary Education. "We are going to do everything. We have been researching and put mitigation strategies in place to keep the virus at bay in schools."

As we know, school districts are doing all they can to keep their students safe. Mask wearing, cohort separating, hand washing, etc.

As of now, Sunnyside Unified School District will bring students back on March 1.

Tucson Unified School District hasn't been in the classrooms since last March and will bring students back March 22.
