Winter Break - Superintendent Message

Dear Altar Valley Families:

As the first semester of school ends, I want to provide an update regarding the return to school after winter break. As of today, Altar Valley School District (AVSD) is planning to continue our current Hybrid Learning model when we return from winter break on Monday, January 4, 2021. This decision was based on data that shows the overwhelming majority of COVID-19 positive cases among AVSD employees and students are not acquired in the classroom, as well as the low rate of transmission in the Three Points area at this time. 

We remain in close contact with the Pima County Health Department and will continue to monitor the data and seek their guidance on public health recommendations. If new data in the next several weeks leads us to change our plan for returning to a Hybrid Learning model after winter break, I will notify you as soon as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, I can be reached at

Thank you for your support and trust in Altar Valley School District. 


David Dumon
