Dear Parents and Guardians,
Let's celebrate! Today, our School Reopening Plan was fully approved by the Tribal Education Standing Committee and the Tribal Health and Social Standing Committees. We have been approved to reopen our schools to in-person instruction for vaccinated students.
For your child to return to school, they must submit a negative PCR test AND be fully vaccinated. Your school will need a copy of the vaccination card and a copy of the negative PCR test. If you do not have these copies. Gila River Health Care can release this information to us if they have a signed Release of Information on file. This form is attached.
We will still offer the option of virtual learning for all unvaccinated students and for families who prefer to have their children attend school virtually.
Steward Health will be at our ELEMENTARY SCHOOL to provide the required PCR test on Wednesday, May 4th from 12:00-3:00 pm. The PCR test must be taken more than five days before the student's first day of in-person learning and the result is required for your child to return to school in-person.
I know you may have a lot of questions and we're here to help. Please contact your school for any assistance.
Sacaton Elementary School - (520) 562-8600 ext. 3000

We look forward to seeing children back on campus! We have missed them!
