Chandler USD officials sent an email to parents and guardians March 19 to provide students and families with educational enrichment resources while schools remain closed through March 27 due to a statewide mandate from Gov. Doug Ducey and Superintendent Kathy Hoffman due to concerns surrounding the spread of the coronavirus.
