On Sept. 17, 2020, K-5 students returned to Sahuarita Unified School District schools for the first time since schools closed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic for a hybrid model of learning.

The Sahuarita Sun spent time at Anza Trail School as students and teachers got back into the swing of school with new procedures, reduced class sizes and extra cleaning protocols.
