    Return to School District Updates

    The Roosevelt School District No. 66 is committed to maintaining a transparent, open line of communication between the district and our community during these unprecedented times. As a district our priority is keeping our families safe and healthy. We have continued to look at the available data, CDC, state, county and local guidelines as it relates to our decisions around returning to school in person. Please see below for the latest updates from our superintendent. For more information about Roosevelt's policies, please download and review the 2021-2022 Return to School Safety Protocol Manual and watch the safety protocol videos.

  • An Update from the Superintendent's Office

    Sept. 28, 2021

    Dear RSD Community,

    Please be advised that Roosevelt School District will continue to require face coverings indoors at all of our District sites.

    court ruling yesterday determined that the Arizona ban on school face covering requirements is unconstitutional and will not go into effect on Sept. 29 as previously announced. Although there will likely be an appeal to this ruling, RSD will keep all safety measures in place, including masking indoors. Currently, both the Arizona Department of Health Services and Maricopa County Department of Public Health metrics place our District in the “High Transmission” category, and we believe that continuing to require indoor masking will help keep our entire community safe, along with continuing to follow our District’s Mitigation Plan.  

    What this means:

    • Face coverings will continue to be required indoors at all of our district sites
    • Face coverings will continue to be required on school buses and District transportation, per a standing federal order

    We strongly encourage all students and staff to follow the recommended guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to fight the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. This includes, but is not limited to:

    • Taking advantage of vaccine opportunities, if you are eligible
    • Practicing physical distancing to the extent possible
    • Practicing proper hygiene and being mindful of your own personal space

    We appreciate your support and look forward to continuing a positive and safe school year.

    Best Regards,
    RSD Leadership
