Dear FHUSD Parents, Guardians, and Friends,
There were two announcements from government officials on March 30, 2020, regarding the extension of school closures and now a “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” Executive Order from Governor Ducey. For more information, please take a moment to read our March 30, 2020, Falcon Focus for all the details.
Please review this list of community resources that may be helpful at this time.
I'm sure most everyone is aware of the rapidly circulating information about the coronavirus disease or COVID-19. It is crucial that we are all informed of the essential and most recent facts about this.
At the district level we have received information and guidance from our insurance carrier and from the Maricopa County Department of Public Health and are relying on those sources for the most accurate reports.
Please take a moment to read more information in the February 28, 2020, special announcement from our superintendent.
There is still time to make a tax credit donation to our schools that will reduce your 2019 state tax obligation up to $400 for those who file a joint return. You actually have until April 15, 2020, to donate and have the credit apply to your 2019 Arizona tax return. Fees paid for extracurricular activities, standardized testing for college readiness (SAT, ACT), or CTE certification assessments are all eligible for the credit. New for 2019, you can make donations in support of playground equipment or shade structures for playground equipment.
As a reminder, you will need a receipt from the school in order to claim the tax credit. Each school has provided receipts for every known donor who contributed through December 2019. We can provide receipts for donations from January 2020 through April on an ongoing basis. If you have made contributions from earlier in 2019 and have not received a receipt yet, please contact the school so records can be updated and receipts provided.
