Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds (ESSER) Safe Return to School Statement

The Grand Canyon Unified School District will be applying for Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds, referred to as ESSER funds.  The purpose of ESSER II is to prevent, prepare for or respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of ESSER III is to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students.  One of the requirements for applying for these grants is to post the school's plan for safe return of students (using the particular grant application format).

That plan can be found here, and mirrors the "Mitigation and Health and Well-Being Message" posted to the web site before the opening of school.
