Campus Operations

Arizona: Schools in Arizona will be closed through the end of the school year. Click here for Governor Doug Ducey and Superintendent Kathy Hoffman’s extended closure announcement for more information.

Nevada: At this time, we have been told schools are closed through April 16, 2020 as a result of Governor Sisolak’s request that all Nevadans stay home and close nonessential businesses to the public for 30 days. We do not anticipate our Legacy schools will reopen until April 20, 2020.

We will be updating this page on our website regularly. Please rest assured that we are constantly monitoring this situation and will provide you with updated information as soon as it is available. 

Campus facilities teams have implemented additional cleaning measures to sanitize our schools during the closure. We will continue to disinfect classrooms and conduct a deep clean of all surfaces daily, including computers, headphones, desks, doorknobs, shelves, chairs and tables

Arizona: With the extended closure through the end of the school year, public schools in Arizona will not be required to extend the number of school days or add additional instructional hours. However, each public school will be required to offer students general educational opportunities for the duration of school closures.

Nevada: Public schools in Nevada will be required to offer remote learning opportunities for students during school closures beginning Monday, March 23. We have already started remote learning at our schools in Nevada, starting March 16. At this time, we understand that remote learning will count towards instructional days and we do not anticipate we will need to extend the school year. As we learn more, we will continue to update our Nevada families. 

 

At this time, we do not anticipate instruction to resume until Monday, April 20, 2020, which will be after Legacy’s planned spring break.

At this time, our Legacy Preschool and Pre-kindergarten programs are currently closed. We remain committed to keeping Legacy’s Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs operational for families in need. However, the realities of the school closure impact our ability to adequately staff and maintain a safe and healthy school environment under the unique COVID-19 health advisories. As soon as we are able to staff to levels required by regulations, we will be in contact with you. We will not be charging tuition while the program is closed.

Arizona: Legacy Kids Care will remain open for our parents who are medical workers and first responders. We will maintain a strict environment of nine students to one caregiver, with a maximum of 36 students per campus. Click here for more information. 

Nevada: Due to the state’s mandate, Legacy Kids Care is canceled until further notice.
