Happy June,

Today the Superintendent of Instruction release guidelines for reopening schools. This additional guidance and suggestions can be found on the Az Department of Education web site at https://www.azed.gov/. I will be meeting with our administrative team the week of June 8th to digest the massage document(s) and put together a draft of what will work for the San Tan Community. Please be on the lookout mid next week for a community survey so we can receive feedback and guidance from you our families. If something changes or new information becomes available, know that my team will update appropriately. Please provide my team a few weeks to finalize this process, below is some additional information on where we stand now as a school.


School Options

San Tan prides itself in providing different learning experiences to meet the needs of families. As of today we have opportunities to participate in our on campus Traditional (K-12), Gifted (K-12), and Montessori (PreK-6) Programs. We have also submitted our request to continue our Home Based Instruction platform for those family who have experienced the benefit of San Tan’s curriculum offerings at home and want to continue. Our Home Based Instruction platform will be offered as a stand-alone home based instructional model or blended with on-campus learning and socialization opportunities. Please be on the lookout for additional information over the coming weeks.


School Openings

San Tan has opened our campuses back up to K-12 students as of June 1st; with the start of our summer programs and the continuation of our preschool program. We understand with the times we are facing regarding COVID-19 that each family needs to carefully evaluate and consider what is the best first for them and what they are comfortable in terms of returning to campus. We understand this decision and fully support every family with this.


All the best,
