Updates to Our Mitigation Plans

This week, the CDC elevated its assessment of the level of pandemic severity in Pima County from "substantial" to "high" rates of transmission. To keep our school safe, we are making the following changes on campus and we've updated the CFSD Mitigation Strategies. These new practices will take effect immediately.


  • In the case of Hester v Phoenix Union High School District, a Maricopa County Superior Court judge ruled on Monday that the Arizona law that prohibits school districts from mandating face coverings is not yet in effect. As a result, school districts can legally require masks.


    Therefore, effective Tuesday, August 17, we are requiring universal indoor masking by all students, staff, teachers, and visitors/volunteers on all CFSD campuses, regardless of vaccination status. Outdoors, masks will continue to be optional.

  • No visitors will be allowed on campus.
  • Limited volunteers are permitted on campus per the school's request. Volunteers are required to wear masks when indoors.
  • Ventana Vista will not be having indoor school events on campus or large gatherings of students indoors.
  • Ventana Vista have moved the student desks and do not have students facing one another until the rate of transmission significantly decreases.


We appreciate your cooperation as we respond to changing local conditions.
