FUSD To Continue Virtual Classes Through Fall Break, Allow Fall Sports Practice

Flagstaff Unified School District officials say students will continue with remote learning through the end of fall break on Oct. 19 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The district’s governing board will review a proposal for phased in-person classes at its Oct. 6 meeting. Students and parents will have the option to stay with or return to virtual learning throughout the 2020/2021 school year.

Officials say they’re basing their decisions on health benchmark. Community spread of COVID-19 is currently in the "substantial" category, and they say all indicators must be "minimal" or "moderate" for in-person classes to resume.

The FUSD board also decided to allow practice to resume for low-risk sports this week, and for contact sports next week. Flagstaff and Coconino high schools will allow spectators at fall athletic events but at 10% capacity.
