FLAGSTAFF, AZ — Flagstaff students will be remote learning until at least early January, according to an announcement from school officials.

Flagstaff Unified School District says the decision to continue the second quarter, which ends on Jan. 5, 2021, was approved by the Governing Board Tuesday evening. The decision was based on current and projected COVID-19 risks.

"FUSD will continue its preparations for the safe return to in-person learning, and provide weekly updates about our District’s health benchmarks and reported COVID-19 cases," said FUSD Superintendent Michael Penca in a media release. "We miss our students immensely and know they desire to return to school as soon as possible. FUSD remains steadfast in our commitment to safety, and in providing quality remote learning and student services during this time."
