April 10, 2021 - Superintendent's Message

Kayenta Unified School District No. 27 is impacted by the Navajo Nation Public Health Emergency Order No. 2021-008 Re-Issuing Stay-at-Home (Shelter in Place) Order and Continuing Daily Curfew on April 9, 2021.

To comply with the Navajo Nation Public Health Emergency Order No. 2021-008, Kayenta Unified School District No. 27 will no longer offer hybrid learning. We will continue to offer distance learning to all KUSD students.

Onsite learning will restart on Wednesday, April 14 for a very limited number of students. Schools will be contacting parents and students to participate in onsite learning.

Kayenta Unified School District will revisit their Distance Learning Plan and consider what is the best approach to continue supporting student's learning needs during this time. We will provide ESS services per the student's IEP needs.

School meal programs will continue with delivery to outlying areas, and local meal pick up.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call Principal Begay at (928) 697-2103 or Assistant Principal Mr. Baker at (928) 697-2105.

Students will need to make sure they bring their Chromebook/iPad fully charged; also, please bring your charger.

Please bring your reusable water bottle and earphones/earbuds.

Bell Schedule:

Students will go to each of their four classrooms. The same block schedule that MVHS traditionally has (with slight time changes):

Hybrid Learning Opportunity

We may have the opportunity for a hybrid learning opportunity, pending approval. In order to allow this, we need signatures from parents/guardians for each student at MVHS giving permission for their student to come back to in-person learning. If interested in allowing your student to attend in-person learning, this would be the perfect opportunity to give your approval.
