Important Notice: No School Due to Water Outage

Dear Sycamore, Copper Ridge, and Corona Foothills Parents,

We were notified earlier this morning that much of Corona de Tucson, as well as Sycamore Elementary, Copper Ridge Elementary, and Corona Foothills Middle School, are without water. At this time, the water remains out at all three Corona de Tucson schools. We want you to be aware of this situation as students are due to depart shortly for our campuses. 

We contacted the water company and dispatched a District maintenance crew to assess conditions at each school and to connect with the water company repair crew on the scene. The water company reports that water won’t be restored until 12 pm. 

Schools in Corona will not be open today. Health and safety considerations require us to have water. Transportation has been notified and buses will not pick up students.

All students will work remotely from home today.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
