More than 38,500 students stopped attending Arizona public schools during the pandemic, and education officials don't know what happened to all of them.The 3.3% overall enrollment drop was steepest among younger students, particularly preschoolers and kindergartners.“When lockdown started in spring 2020, a lot of preschoolers and kindergartners just left school and never came back," said Wes Brownfield, executive director of the Arizona Rural Schools Association.
