Great Hearts America, which operates Anthem Preparatory Academy in Anthem, sent this letter to parents on Friday, March 13, which would have been the last day of the school’s spring break:
Dear Great Hearts Families,
I have asked our leadership teams in Arizona and Texas to extend spring vacation through next week. There will be no regular school or after-school activities during the week of March 16, 2020.
I want to be clear this is a precautionary measure in response to Coronavirus. We do not have any confirmed cases or known exposure in our Arizona or Texas school communities.
We intend to resume classes on Monday, March 23, 2020. Should we need to extend again, we will tell you as soon as we have made that decision. In the meantime, we will be in contact with learning activities from our curriculum next week.
Please see our FAQ below for more information regarding COVID-19. If you have additional questions, please email .
We are very sorry for the inconveniences and hardships this may cause, but we sincerely believe it is in the best interest of our community at this time.
CEO, Great Hearts America
