TUCSON (KVOA) – Many students and staff of Catalina Foothills School District are waking up and commuting back to their buildings Monday morning.

Just like many other southern Arizona school districts, they are leaving it up to the parent of student or student to decide if they want to return to the classroom, which means they’re still providing a full online model.

Things the school district is doing to keep students and staff safe include the requirement of face coverings, adjusting class sizes and reducing the number of students on campus at once.

The school district is one of the last big ones in our area to bring students back into the classroom for the 2020/2021 school year.

Tucson Unified School District, the largest in our area has not done this yet… but, has a hybrid plan in the works.

Catalina Foothills has seven schools. Each one is doing all they can to continue instruction while combating the spread of COVID-19 at the same time.

The district will also offer free grab-and-go lunches. More information can be found at https://www.cfsd16.org/
