September 2020:

The Caurus Academy Governing Board voted to resume in-person learning starting on Wednesday, September 2, 2020 after reviewing data outlined by the Maricopa County Department of Health.

Students and their families will still have three learning options this academic year: in-person, on-line, for the flex option (which allows for either in-person or on-line learning in four week intervals).

Please refer to the most updated Quarantine and Isolation guidelines released by the CDD and Maricopa County Department of Health (October 28, 2020)

Given current state and local spread, along with the concerns of our community, the Caurus Academy Governing Board unanimously voted on July 28, 2020 to further delay the start of in-person learning. The Governing Board will reconvene on September 8, 2020 to reevaluate the safety of students physically returning to campus. The Board also unanimously voted, given the extension of the physical closure, to cancel the Fall sports season.
