Stay Home?

DVA Eagles: We are very sad that our campus is closed through the end of the year. However, we are excited that we get to keep on learning together!

Governor Doug Ducey and Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman announced the extension of Arizona school closures through the end of the school year. Even though school is closed, students will be provided with opportunities for learning through virtual and take-home activities.

Teachers will communicate assignments via Remind, SeeSaw, Google Classroom, and virtual class meetings.

Students will have full access to all digital programs via the student links.

We miss you, Eagles! Stay healthy!

COVID-19 Update 3/30/20

Eagles: Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman just shared an important announcement regarding AZ schools. You may read the announcement here.

Although schools are ordered to remain closed, Governor Ducey has issued an executive order that will permit students to receive learning opportunities from their schools. While we are disappointed that our Eagles will not be on our campus on a daily basis, we understand that we must all do our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

We will reach out, after Spring Break, with more information. Enjoy your time together and stay healthy!

Play at Home

Our team is hard at work providing resources for students to learn at home and Playworks would like to support our efforts with some additional resources. As we seek to find ways to provide resources amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, we would like to share the Play at Home series to support kids’ healthy movement and play while school-age students are home. 

Below are three free resources:

  • Play at Home Webpage: A library of videos and other resources featuring games and activities families can play at home. Each game has limited use of equipment and meets the CDC requirements of social distancing. All available free on the Play at Home webpage. You can also follow all videos on social media using #PlayAtHome and #PlayworksAtHome.
  • Play at Home Playbook: This game guide has a variety of games and activities families can do in their own homes, with little to no equipment necessary. 
  • Live Virtual Recess: A Playworks Coach leading a morning warm-up, a midday game, and an afternoon cooldown each day. Anyone can tune in to Facebook Live Monday- Friday at 9am, 11am and 1pm and play along. Watch what the experience will feel like.

We hope these resources will help maintain a healthy balance of academics and physical activity over the coming weeks.
