Welcome Back to School! The Somerton School District Governing Board decided that all Somerton Schools would make in-person learning available to all students starting on Monday, March 15, 2021. Remote learning is still available for the remainder of this school year for those families who opt to continue. Parents who wish to send their children to school must sign a couple of forms. Teachers will be scheduling a time for parents to come to school to sign the necessary paperwork. Students are encouraged to wear their school uniform or school shirts every day. We understand that some of our families are experiencing hardship at this time and we will be flexible with the uniform requirement for the last two months of school. Students who wear regular clothes to school must wear appropriate attire (e.g. no ripped jeans). School hours for students will be 8:00 – 1:45 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Wednesday will be an early dismissal day and students will be dismissed at 12:00. Students and staff members will still need to wear masks and follow the Desert Sonora Mitigation Plan while on campus. We look forward to seeing most of our students back on campus on Monday, March 15!

Estimados amigos y familias de Somerton: Anoche la Mesa Directiva Escolar de Somerton decidió permanecer en Aprendizaje a Distancia y volver a clases después de las vacaciones de invierno. Queremos esperarnos a volver a clases en persona hasta enero para así poder •asegurarnos que continúe la tendencia actual de las medidas de riesgo de COVID del Departamento de Servicios de Salud de Arizona •evitar interrupciones durante la temporada de gripe, así como evitar el riesgo de exposición durante la temporada de fiestas, como el Día de Acción de Gracias y Navidad. •y sobre todo para continuar con los logros que hemos conseguido en el aprendizaje y no interrumpir el sistema actual. Cada escuela ampliará los servicios de supervisión en la escuela según sea posible. Esperamos que en enero podamos volver a clases siguiendo los protocolos de la Fase 3 (evitando la fase híbrida por completo). Esto significa que todos los estudiantes deben regresar a su escuela donde tendremos medidas preventivas. Si está interesado en tener información sobre las diferentes fases, planes y medidas preventivas, usted puede leer el Plan de Reapertura de las escuelas de Somerton en nuestro sitio web ssd11.org Recientemente agregamos una versión en español. ¡Manténgase sano y salvo! Laura Noel, Ed.D. Superintendente Somerton School District #11

Dear Somerton Friends and Family, Last night the Somerton School Governing Board decided to plan to remain in Distance Learning until after Winter Break. We hope to •be sure the current Arizona Department of Health Services benchmark trend prevails •avoid disruption during flu season and risk of exposures over holidays with families •and most of all to continue the momentum we are gaining in learning by not disrupting the current system. Each school will expand supervision provision as able. We expect in January to be able to open using Phase 3 protocols (avoiding Hybrid altogether). This means all students will be encouraged to return to campus, but we will have preventative measures in place. If you are interested in the different phases, plans and preventative measures, you are welcome to review our Reopening Plans. They are on our ssd11.org website and recently added a Spanish version. Stay safe and healthy! Laura Noel, Ed.D. Superintendent Somerton School District #11

Dear Parents We hope this message finds you and your family well. We would like to thank you for your continuous support during the school closure. Our school year is winding down, we have 2 more weeks to go! During this time we would like to ensure we limit the in-person contact as much as possible at our site for the safety of staff members and your family. We will no longer distribute work packets and we will take the time to do a routine cleaning of our site once again. We will no longer provide hard copy packets for the remainder of the school year. We are asking our students to continue to stay connected via online programs, assignments and classes with teachers. Teachers will continue communicating with you and your child. Last day of school is scheduled for May 29th. Let’s keep the learning going and end on a strong note! Thank you for your time and support. Estimados Padres: Esperamos que este mensaje les encuentre bien a usted y a los suyos. Nos gustaría agradecerle por su continuo apoyo, especialmente durante estas semanas del cierre de la escuela. Nuestro año escolar está terminando, ¡nos quedan 2 semanas más! Durante este tiempo, nos gustaría asegurarnos de limitar el contacto en persona tanto como sea posible en nuestro sitio para la seguridad de los miembros del personal y su familia. Estamos deteniendo la distribución de paquetes de trabajo y nos tomaremos el tiempo para hacer una limpieza de rutina de nuestro sitio una vez más. Ya no proporcionaremos paquetes impresos por el resto del año escolar. Les pedimos a nuestros estudiantes que continúen conectados a través de programas en línea, tareas y clases con maestros. Gracias por tu tiempo y apoyo.
