San Tan Foothills High School to temporarily close beginning Oct 12, 2020


The Pinal County Health Department directed San Tan Foothills High School to temporarily close beginning Monday, Oct 12, 2020 until Thursday, October 22, 2020 at the earliest. The decision made by the health department was due to the number of students and staff required to self-quarantine. The decision was not based on the number of positive cases reported.

During the past week, a cluster was identified at San Tan Foothills High School in San Tan Valley. With the school's help, prompt identification of new cases and potential exposures were determined late on Friday, October 9, 2020.  Pinal County Public Health has deemed the school's closure, for onsite classes, to begin contact tracing and quarantine as the most critical public health interventions to control an outbreak.

San Tan Foothills High School staff and students who may have been exposed will be contacted and asked to quarantine for 14 days from their last exposure. Since the last known exposure was 10/7/2020, the temporary onsite closure is from Monday 10/12/2020 through Wednesday, 10/21/2020. Should new school exposures be identified after the 10/7/20 date, the closure may be extended.

All San Tan Foothills students will transition to the Distance Learning educational platform used during the first quarter of the school year starting Oct 12, 2020. School administration and faculty will communicate with parents and students to provide the necessary information and make the transition as seamless as possible.

All other schools in the Florence Unified School District will continue to provide in person instruction unless the Pinal County Health Department believes it prudent to transition to the Distance Learning platform.
