Throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic, Highland Prep has endeavored to provide the highest possible quality of virtual and hybrid instruction to our students. HP’s mitigation efforts have provided our students the opportunity to remain in school for the vast majority of the school year. We believe in the importance of providing these opportunities and want to maximize the likelihood that our students can stay in school without being put into quarantine or isolation protocols. 

This afternoon, Governor Ducey issued new guidance about face coverings and schools in his Executive Order 2021-10. It is important to note that the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) issued Emergency Measure 2021-02 today encouraging K-12 school districts to continue to take actions consistent with CDC recommendations to mitigate the community spread of COVID-19. This measure also affirms that K-12 school districts and charter schools maintain the right to institute and enforce policies to mitigate against COVID-19 spread, including requiring the use of masks. The guidance from CDC and AZDHS can be found at https://azdhs.gov/covid19/documents/schools/k-12-school-guidance-covid-19.pdf 

Additionally, the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) states that face masks are the most effective mitigation strategy in the prevention and spread of COVID-19. At this time, HP will continue to keep all mitigation measures in place, including wearing masks, handwashing, cleaning and maintaining school and district buildings, social distancing as much as possible, and providing contact tracing for those who may have been exposed to an infected person. Students will not be allowed to attend school unless they are wearing masks. 

Thank you for your continued support during this unique school year.    Warmly,

Jack Bagley, M.Ed.
