Thank you for choosing Litchfield Elementary School District!
We are pleased to announce that Litchfield Elementary School District
successfully completed an intensive HealthyVerify certification process.
We were among the first school districts in the state to achieve this status
that represents a rigorous third-party examination of our health and safety protocols.
Updated friday, july 30 - Face Coverings
Although Arizona State Law does not permit school districts or charter schools to mandate face coverings at school, county, state and federal health agencies strongly recommend the wearing of face coverings to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and/or variants of COVID-19.
Federal regulations require face coverings on public transportation, which includes school buses. While face coverings at our schools are currently optional, we are mandated by Federal regulation to require your child to wear a face covering while riding the school bus.
free meals for all children
Thanks to full funding from the USDA, we are offering free breakfast and lunch to all students for this entire school year! Please encourage your child to enjoy our healthy and delicious meals daily. Your support of this program will help us attract federal funding for your child’s school.
thank you for supporting our excellence
Thank you to our students, staff, and community for following health and safety protocols that helped us keep classrooms open for students to learn in person. With your support, we got students back into classrooms as soon as it was safe to do so while offering extensive online and hybrid education options. We also provided technology to those in need and continue to offer free meals for children through our national award-winning food service program.
We appreciate your support that fueled our recent honor by the West Valley View as its 2021 Best School District, Best Place to Work, and Best Preschool.
LESD COVID-19 DASHBOARD
Updated: Friday, may 21
Current Active COVID Cases - On Campus
“Current active COVID cases on campus” reflect students and staff members participating in on-campus activities who have tested positive for COVID-19. Individuals who test positive are excluded from participation in any in-person/on-campus activity until the isolation period and guidelines are met. Once the individual has completed the isolation period their case is no longer considered active and it is removed from the “Current Active COVID Cases” count.
Current Active COVID Cases - Off Campus
“Current active COVID cases off campus” reflect students and staff members who have tested positive for COVID-19 but were not on campus on day one (1) of their designated isolation period. Individuals who test positive are excluded from participation in any in-person/on-campus activity until the isolation period and guidelines are met. This typically includes individuals in Digital Learning Academy and Distance Learning. Once the individual has completed the isolation period their case is no longer considered active and it is removed from the “Current Active COVID Cases” count. Data is reliant on cases being reported to Litchfield Elementary School District.
Current Active Quarantine - On and Off Campus
“Current active quarantine” cases reflect all students and staff members exposed to someone with COVID-19. This data is reliant on cases being reported to Litchfield Elementary School District.
Total COVID Cases (cumulative since 10-23-2020)
“Total COVID cases” reflect all of the COVID positive staff and students that have been reported since 10-23-2020 (when the LESD COVID Dashboard began).
The communication regarding positive, or potentially positive, COVID-19 tests falls within the HIPAA guidelines and the privacy rights of students and staff must be protected. When a positive case is reported to any LESD school it is immediately reported to Maricopa County Department of Public Health.
After Maricopa County Department of Public Health has investigated and confirmed the positive case, the school will gather additional information, identify any potential close contacts, and prepare communication for staff and the community. Anyone who is identified as a "close contact" will be sent a notification that they may have been within six feet for 15 minutes or longer with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19. If anyone is required to quarantine as a result of being in close contact, their notification will include a return date (a negative COVID-19 test will not allow an individual to return earlier than specified).
