COOLIDGE — Imagine Schools announced Thursday that they would continue with a virtual learning model for all their southwest regional schools, including Coolidge, until at least Jan. 29.
In a letter sent out to families, Executive Vice President Bradford Uchacz acknowledged that health and safety considerations took precedent but that they recognized the impact remote learning had on students and families.
“We recognize the important role our teachers serve in the daily lives of our students,” Uchacz said. “We want students and staff to return to campus as soon as it can be done safely.”
Uchacz also said Imagine Schools was working to secure vaccination opportunities for school staff in Maricopa and Pinal counties. Although the hope was to combine safety protocols and community monitoring to return to in-person learning as soon as possible, families could still have the option to stay in virtual learning at that time.
Imagine Elementary Coolidge continues to serve curbside meals for students three days a week — Monday, Wednesday and Friday — and also has been offering specialized counseling services since December.
