Sahuarita Unified School District opened its campuses to K-12 students for full in-person learning on Aug. 2. 

Masks are highly encouraged at SUSD, though the district can't mandate them. 

The Green Valley News and Sahuarita Sun stopped at Copper View Elementary School and Sahuarita High School to see students, masked and unmasked, return to a more traditional campus than the last two years.
