Thank you to our Technology Department and principals for working hard to distribute more than 2,000 laptops to students in need. This opportunity is for students in need, not every registered student. Students with the greatest need are prioritized in the distribution process. Please contact your child’s principal to be added to the waitlist
Distance learning has begun

Thank you for your outstanding flexibility as our teachers and students establish their routines for Distance Learning. We are overwhelmed by the support and grace you have offered us in this crisis.
The health and safety of our staff and students remain at the forefront of all conversations. Our definite start date for In-Person Learning is not yet determined.
Our decision about when to resume In-Person Learning is guided by the three measurements (cases, percent positivity, and COVID-like illnesses) that are now being reported by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) on Thursdays.
Using a “stop light” description, we are striving for “green lights” based on a 14-day average of testing positivity below 5% and daily cases less than 10 per 100,000 population. Click here to see Maricopa County’s most recent progress report.
As you work to keep your family healthy, we encourage you to click here to order free masks.
Please enjoy healthy and convenient meals at all of our schools and dozens of bus stops from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. You may purchase multiple meals at that time to help with meals at home on the following day.
Thank you to our generous community for offering so much assistance at this time. We are grateful for your support and generosity at every turn. The HOT Community Foundation donated 1,300 masks to our employees, Summit Community Church energized teachers with bountiful snack baskets at many of our schools, and Angela and Kurt Watkins of Buckeye donated 20 new Chromebooks for students in need. Schools cannot do it alone, and these are shining examples of our community contributing to our educational excellence.
We are humbled by your support. Thank you for choosing Litchfield Elementary School District!
