Per Governor Ducey's announcement, all schools in the State of Arizona will be closed through August 17th and after that, schools should follow Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) guidelines regarding reopening schools.  School started with distance learning on August 3rd and will continue with distance learning options until the district can safely meet the guidelines provided by ADHS.

Pearce Elementary School District has decided to enter into the next phase of reopening.  Starting Tuesday, September 8, 2020, students will be able to return to in-person school. 

Schedules and campus life is going to be a bit different in the past.  Students, staff, parents and visitors will be required to wear masks while on buses and on campus.  Students will be given breaks from wearing masks as much as social distancing will allow. 

All students will be screened before entering either the school bus or school property.  Please wait at the bus stop or at the school gate for your child to be screened before leaving.  Students exhibiting symptoms of being sick will be returned to their parents.  If your child is sick or exhibiting symptoms, please keep them at home!  Please do not drop off students at the school before 7:45 a.m.  This will ensure that we have proper staffing and individuals to screen students.  Students will be going directly to their classrooms upon entering the campus.

Preschool students will continue with their original schedule.  Students meeting in the AM class will meet from 8 a.m. to 11:00.  Students meeting in the PM class will meet from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Kindergarten through 3rd grade students will be in school from 8 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Buses will run at 2:00 p.m. to take these elementary students home.

4th through 8th grade students will be in school from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Buses will run again at 3:30 p.m. to take these junior high students home.

Please check out the other pages to learn more about how Pearce Elementary School District will be operating with students on campus.

As new information becomes available, we will post it here and our Facebook page.  We will post general links here for educational information as well as health information as we find it!
