The Governing Board recently approved a resolution strongly encouraging all employees and age-eligible students to receive the vaccine. The Navajo Nation Council has issued resolution CAU-48-21 to require schools promptly adopt COVID-19 vaccination requirements. The Navajo Nation Board of Education has a supporting resolution NNBESE-752-2021 mandating all school to adopt COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Employees and age-eligible students receiving the vaccination will keep our schools open.
The responsibility of providing a safe learning and teaching environment is not the exclusive responsibility of the school district. Parents and students must contribute in a positive and proactive manner with behaviors that keep the schools safe and open for effective learning and teaching.
Distance learning will continue to be an option for students.
