Arizona to Keep Schools Closed for 2 More Weeks Due to Coronavirus

Arizona’s schools will remain closed for at least two extra weeks because of the continued coronavirus outbreak.

Gov. Doug Ducey and Superintendent Kathy Hoffman announced in a video posted to Twitter on Friday that the school closure will be extended two extra weeks.

Arizona schools were temporarily closed starting Monday, which was initially supposed to last for two weeks in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19. This extension will push the closure through April 10.

“Our goal is to get kids safely back in the classroom as soon as possible while providing parents and educators certainty so they can plan and make decisions,” Ducey said in the video.
