Metro Arts On-Site Learning Plan

Updated 8/17/20

On-Site Learning Plan

Metro Arts is committed to the health and safety of all students and staff, so we will not re-open schools to in-person instruction until it is safe, responsible, and reasonable to do so. We will base our decision on guidance provided by the CDC, the Arizona Department of Health Safety's (ADHS) public health benchmarks, and the Governor's office.


Dates: Beginning on August 17th, the campus will be open Monday-Friday during standard school hours to any students that need a safe space to complete their virtual learning.  All classes will remain online through at least October 2nd, so students will need to bring their own laptop or school-assigned Chromebook, power cord and headphones. Students will not be in a teacher-led classroom but will be in a designated supervised study space.


Who May Attend: No student will be refused, however, priority will be given to the neediest students, specifically students who have been identified with high needs per their Individualized Education Plan (IEP). 


Student Identification/Sign Up:  With current space limitations, families will be required to confirm their student’s attendance by Thursday at 3:00 pm the week prior to being on campus.


Acknowledgment:  Guardians will be asked to sign a COVID-19 acknowledgment form in order for their students to attend an on-site learning space.


Lunch:  Students will be expected to bring their own bag lunch and any snacks they require. Refrigeration will be available. 


Health Checks: On arrival, students will receive a temperature screening. Per CDC guidelines, any student with known COVID-19 symptoms, or with a temperature of 100.4 or greater, will remain in an isolated area until a parent or guardian is able to pick them up from school. Any student that is sick or not feeling well is asked to stay home. Anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or lives in the same home with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 is required to stay home.


Students will be given a home screening checklist for identifying known COVID-19 symptoms. They are required to complete this every day before coming to school. Any positive responses must be reported to the school and the student will be required to stay home.


Face Masks and Physical Distancing: Students and staff are expected to wear face masks while on campus per Metro Arts Face Mask Policy Mask Policy . Students are expected to bring their own face mask. If a student does not have a face mask, one will be provided. Students and staff will adhere to the CDC guidelines associated with physical distancing when on campus.
