Important Updates and Reminders Regarding Covid at Anasazi and SUSD Schools

According to the CDC and Maricopa Department of Public Health (MCDPH) guidance, SUSD is still monitoring our school sites for illness and COVID positive cases. We will continue to ask that you keep your child home from school if they exhibit COVID illness symptoms even if they seem like allergies. SUSD will continue to follow the SUSD COVID-19 Return to School/Work Guidelines for the remainder of the school 2021-22 school year with the hope for a change for the next school year.

Reminders from Nurse Renee

Please keep your child home if he or she has any of the COVID-like symptoms listed below, even if your child only has one of them and you attribute it to a minor cold or allergies. Discuss with Nurse Renee prior to sending your child to school:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
Also, please notify Nurse Renee if your child is a close contact of a COVID-positive person or if someone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19.

Family Action Requested

A key aspect of the IB PYP is the development of International Mindedness. As part of our PYP journey, it is important that we know what additional languages are represented in our student body. This will help us to celebrate the diversity that exists in our school, as well as, provide educational opportunities at Anasazi.

Please complete this survey below and indicate any additional languages that are spoken at home. Only include languages were at least one person is fluent in the family and your children are exposed to that language regularly.

Here is the survey:

Do you know someone wanting to enroll at Anasazi for next year?

This month's IB Learner Profile Attribute is PRINCIPLED

This month we are focusing Principled.

"We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice, and with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences."

This month students will be working on developing a growth mindset. Please remember to look at the Anasazi in Action page on our PYP Parent Portal to learn more about what your children are learning.
