A campus monitor in the Sahuarita School District has died from COVID-19.

Walden Grove High monitor Raul Alvarado died on Dec. 10. He had been working at the high school since August 2011.

Alvarado tested positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 24, according to a GoFundMe started by his family. He was hospitalized Dec. 1 and was put on a ventilator the next day. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, son who is a student at the school and five grandchildren.

Locale Neighborhood Italian will open to the public on Friday, Dec. 3. The restaurant's opening will mark the first time the building located at 60 N. Alvernon Way will have been used since 2015 - minus a short two month venture in 2018. The restaurant will also offer a cafe and bakery. (Josh Galemore / Arizona Daily Star)

The district did not say whether Alvarado contracted the virus at the school.

“We are saddened to hear the news about the passing of our colleague Raul Alvarado,” said Superintendent Manuel Valenzuela. “Raul was a dedicated member of our team, who impacted the lives of students, staff and our entire community in many ways. He will be tremendously missed and leaves a legacy in the lives of those who knew him.”
