• About Kyrene’s Flex Distance Learning

    Parents seeking flexibility have the opportunity to transition between Flex and in-person learning at scheduled intervals throughout the year. Families may also choose to enter distance learning at a later date. Through continued enrollment at your current school, you will receive newsletters from your principal, advising your family of virtual school events to enable you to stay connected and participating in your home school activities.
