Masks Required
Masks are required flyer

RESD's mask requirement will remain in place for the health and safety of our students, staff, families, and community until further notice. We appreciate your patience and support in advance.

As you may have heard, on Monday, April 19, Governor Ducey issued an executive order rescinding the requirements of wearing masks in kindergarten through twelfth grades. However, within the order "kindergarten through twelfth-grade school districts and charter schools still, maintain the right to institute and enforce policies to mitigate against COVID-19 spread including the use of masks."

The centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health officials continue to recommend the wearing of masks in public schools along with following mitigation strategies to ensure a safe learning environment.
