With an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of our students, staff, and administrators, ACCEL is following the recommendation from Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman and is suspending on-campus school services. We will work with our district partners to determine when our school campus will resume programming onsite. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates on our Facebook page and here at ACCEL'S COVID-19 page as well. Please visit https://www.azhealth.gov/COVID19 for continued updates, facts and to learn about the measures you can take to remain healthy. Thank you!
