As a part of the state's response to the coronavirus pandemic, students in Sonora, Arizona’s neighbor to the south, will finish out their school year from home.

Governor Claudia Pavlovich made the announcement in a video released Wednesday evening.

“Under no circumstances — none — will I take measures that risk the health of our most priceless treasures: our children,” she said.

She instructed state education authorities to develop a strategy so that many of Sonora’s students can “satisfactorily” finish out the school year, which goes until early July, from the safety of their homes. The following school year is expected to start in mid-August.

This comes as the state and country are preparing to begin opening parts of their economies.
