Model Creek Elementary School

Student instructional time is 7:45 AM - 3:00 PM.  Students should be on campus by 7:40 AM.  

Students should not arrive before 7:30 AM or remain after 3:00 PM, unless for sports or clubs. We do not provide supervision for your child beyond the designated instructional times, unless your child is involved in sports or clubs. Your child's safety is a priority and we appreciate your cooperation.

We are a four day week school:  
Tuesday through Friday.  
Campus is closed on Mondays.

District playgrounds are closed until further notice.

All staff, students, and visitors must wear face coverings such as cloth masks or FDA surgical masks while on campus or buses.  If you plan on coming to campus, please call ahead to make an appointment.

Executive Order 2020-51 is still in effect and states: “All school districts and charter schools shall develop and implement a policy to require face coverings, such as face masks or face shields, for all staff and students over the age of five until the Department of Health Services determines that face coverings are no longer necessary or recommended to contain the spread of the virus.” The Arizona Department of Health Services has not rescinded Emergency Measure 2020-04, Slowing the Spread of COVID-19 in Schools, which states that: “Each school district and charter school shall immediately mandate that masks are worn on school campus, on school buses, during school-associated activities, and while participating in or observing any school-associated athletic activities, by all students, faculty, staff, contractors and visitors.” Therefore, schools should maintain face covering requirements at this time.

In addition, should Executive Order 2020-51 and/or Emergency Measure 2020-04 be rescinded in the future, Executive Order 2021-06 authorizes public schools to implement mitigation policies, including face covering requirements, in their own buildings and transportation vehicles. Therefore, no public school would be required to lift face covering policies.
The YESD School Governing Board reviews our YESD Plan each month at its board meeting.  We are still under the hybrid instruction model which gives parents the option of their child(ren) attending class in-person or continue with distance learning.  As the COVID-19 metrics change in our community, the determination to have in-person instruction or distance learning may shift.  Communication, via your email and our website, will be provided as needed in the event of the metrics or situation changing as we move forward.

 The Yarnell Elementary School District Governing Board has held several public study sessions to discuss options for high school attendance choice.  Mr. Tim Carter, Yavapai County School Superintendent; Kellie Burns, District Executive Officer; and Renee Raskin, Deputy Chief, Yavapai County Education Services; have been present for the sessions to work on options for YESD.  The school board is responsible for the fiscal management of funds and has reviewed tuition costs.

 Previously, our eighth graders had a choice between Prescott High School and Wickenburg High School.  On November 8, 2018, The YESD Board met limiting that choice to one high school: Prescott High School.  For more information regarding this decision, please see the above link, High School Tuition and Transportation per Student.

 By only having one home high school district (which is typical of most rural schools), YESD can help keep local tax-rates down.
