PHOENIX, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — Avondale Elementary School District is the first public school district in the state to receive HealthyVerify certification against COVID-19. What that means is, throughout the school year, they’ll be following safety measures provided by medical professionals, like Banner Neurological institute and ASU, to keep your child safe from getting infected.
Dr. Betsy Hargrove, Superintendent of Avondale Elementary School District, said their new system, which was first designed to certify businesses were safe to reopen, is helping her district move forward in bringing back students and staff.
The company called HealthyVerify, is based out of Phoenix and partners with medical professionals, under CDC guidelines, tailoring a safety plan for their customers, in this case, kids grades K-8th at ten campuses in Avondale and Goodyear.
