School is out

“Dear CCUSD Families and Staff,

After carefully monitoring the most recent information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, and after meeting with CCUSD Leadership as well as considering parent and staff input, we have decided to close all Cave Creek Unified schools to students and the public, effective Monday, March 16, 2020. This includes before and after school care (Kids Club), all enrichment classes and Spring Break Camp. At this time, this closure will remain in effect through Friday, March 27th, which is the end of our Spring Break.
While we have been working the past two weeks to develop and implement solutions to this unprecedented situation, it has become evident that a closure is necessary.
It is important to note that there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Cave Creek Unified School District. However, despite the measures already implemented, we recognize that there is significant concern throughout our school community about the potential spread of COVID-19.
Despite school closures, CCUSD is providing learning opportunities and resources that students can access at home. To ensure that you have the most recent information, please go to our webpage at We appreciate your patience as we continue to develop plans to meet the needs of our students.
Understanding that some families and staff may have planned travel during Spring Break, please consider the following guidelines.
• If you have traveled to high-risk areas as identified by the CDC, self-isolate for 14 calendar days after returning.
• Staff who have traveled to high-risk areas should self-isolate for 14 calendar days after their return.
The District Crisis Team will continue to meet regularly to monitor and adjust actions as necessary to keep our CCUSD community safe and well. We will provide updated information as we have it and before the end of Spring Break.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we navigate these challenging times. We are taking this issue very seriously and are closely monitoring updates from national, state and county health experts.

Debbi Burdick, Ed.D., Superintendent
