Greetings Parents and Guardians, I am messaging you this evening to inform you that tomorrow Thursday, January 13, will be a virtual learning day at Indian Wells Elementary School. This is simply a precautionary measure due to a small uptick in illness at IWES over the last couple of days amongst students and staff. We have not identified any specific outbreaks; however, we feel we can utilize a virtual learning day on Thursday which will allow Thursday through Monday (no school Monday) to isolate from one another and regain our health prior to reuniting next Tuesday, January 18th. Students will be required to complete classwork on Thursday that teachers will assign and teachers will be calling home for attendance. Please note: assignments will be due on Tuesday, January 18th when we return to in-person schooling. This is a requirement of our approved Instructional time model. If the teacher cannot contact your student or your child does not return the assignment for Thursday, they will be marked absent for the day of January 13th. These short breaks may occur occasionally so we can maintain a safe, healthy, and educational environment at school. We appreciate your support and cooperation to Help our Unique Students Develop! Stay well, stay healthy and enjoy the three-day weekend! Reminder, no school on Monday! See everyone Tuesday! Yours in Education, Ms. Tomlin- Principal IWES

Greetings Parents and Guardians of Indian Wells Elementary, This is a reminder as we enter the second half of this school year. If you have taken your child to get tested for COVID-19 please wait for the COVID-19 test results to come back before sending your child back to school. You can call the school and let us know that you are waiting for test results. If there is someone in the household that tests positive for COVID-19 please help us to help reduce the risk of transmission and keep your child home. Please call the school to let us know. Please also keep your child home if they have any symptoms of COVID. We appreciate your help. Thank you , Ms. Tomlin

Dear Indian Wells Families, Our elementary schools in conjunction with HUSD#3 and the Arizona Department of Education have created an emergency Instructional Time Model Plan for the 2021-2022 school year. In the event of inclement weather and/or health and wellness intermittent campus closure we will be able to still provide schooling through online/virtual delivery. If the school is unable to provide on-campus operations students and teachers will work through Google Classroom. Teachers may also hold live sessions via Google Meets. Students will be expected to complete assignments posted in Google Classroom and/or attend live or recorded Google Meet sessions in order to receive attendance credit for the day of school campus closure. Teachers will post the lessons and live session information no later than 8:30 am the morning of any school campus closure. We understand that not every student has technology at home. We will make our best efforts to make notification of school closures with enough time for students to take their Chromebooks home. Furthermore, we will make an effort to make all material available offline in case students do not have internet access at home. If the internet is a concern and will not be available for your child in the event of campus closure please contact the school office at 928-654-3622 and we will try to work with you to accommodate your needs. It is our hope that we will not have to utilize this emergency situation Instructional Time Model plan during the 2021-2022 school year. However, having it in place ensures that our teachers will be able to continue to provide academic services if needed. Thank you for your continued support and valued partnership with the Holbrook Elementary Schools. Best Regards, Andrea Tomlin Andrea Tomlin Indian Wells, Principal
