News

So much is happening in our small district! One of our goals is to help keep you informed of all the changes and positive activities taking place. We’ll be updating this page frequently with the latest news and events, allowing you to have the most up-to-date information possible.


Closure of School Year

Governor Ducey and State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Hoffman stated that the current school closure will be extended through the end of the school year at this time. The announcement is intended to give parents and educators as much certainty as possible so they can plan and make decisions.

Wenden School District #19 will provide take-home learning opportunities for all our students. We will continue making our best effort possible to provide quality instruction and meet the needs of all students.

We will continue to drop off daily breakfast and lunches and their instructional packets at the same time. Packets are due back to the teachers every Thursday when our drivers deliver lunches. It is critical that you return packets on time so that teachers can grade, evaluate, and give feedback on weekly lessons. Teacher contact information will be in each student's packet should you have questions regarding homework.

Please take a moment to read Superintendent Gloria Dean's complete letter regarding the closure of the school year.


Parent and Community Update - Week of April 6, 2020

Thank you for your patience during these challenging times. Based on my communications with parents and students, we are now aware that homework was a bit of a challenge the first week. Since meeting with teachers to discuss your concerns, teachers felt it was best to extend homework instructional packets due dates from each Thursday to every Monday. This will give everyone ample time for completion, plus it is less stressful.

Let's continue to keep the lines of communication open and work closely together as we have been so that we can support each other as we get through COVID-19.

Please see the complete letters below regarding the latest update.
