COVID-19 District Response
UPDATES ON FACE MASKS
On April 19, 2021, Arizona Governor Ducey rescinded a section of Executive Order 2020-51 regarding the use of face masks in K-12 schools.
Effective on June 1, 2021, face mask usage will be optional for students and staff during the summer month programming such as Camp Crane, 21st CCLC Summer School, and Band Camp.

At the Crane Elementary School District, we’ve been continuously tracking community transmission of COVID-19 cases and COVID-like illness in Yuma, as is our duty and responsibility to our students and staff. We’ve utilized the information presented on the Arizona Department of Health Services dashboard and have been in regular communication with our local health department in order to have an accurate and up-to-date understanding of the situation in Yuma.
At a special session of the Governing Board meeting on Monday, February 1, 2021, it was decided that all Crane Schools would begin offering in-person learning as of Monday, February 8, 2021.
Remote learning opportunities will still be available for families who wish to continue learning from home. If you intend for your child(ren) to continue remote learning, please contact your school administration to let them know of your choice.
PLEASE NOTE: As part of our mitigation strategies, our students will still be required to wear masks. The Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention recommends that everyone continue to wear masks and follow social distancing rules EVEN if a person has received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. By following these easy mitigation protocols, students and staff members are taking the initiative to not only keep themselves safe but also safeguard their peers’ wellbeing. By working together to continue the established strategies, we are better equipped to manage the situation and keep our students in the classroom.
