Payne Jr High - updated 1.7.2021

Virtual Learning

The Governing Board voted on the following for all preschool through 12th grade students:

  • Virtual instruction will begin on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 and in-person instruction will resume Tuesday, January 19, 2021 (the day after Martin Luther King Holiday).
  • Tuesday, January 5, 2021, will be a teacher workday and students do not attend school (including Chandler Online Academy). Teachers will report to their school sites in order to prepare for virtual instruction and distribution of devices to those students who need them.

This option allows for a quarantine period after returning from winter break where students have travelled and participated in gatherings. The Governing Board will revisit this action on January 13, 2021.

Schools will be open per Executive Order 2020-51 to provide free on-site learning opportunities and support services for students who need a place to go during the day. Fill out this Google Form if you are interested in on-site access. We will also schedule a time for students if they were absent for their 1st Semester Final Exams.
