Returning to In-Person Learning Information
Dear APS Community,
We are pleased to announce that we will be returning to in-person learning. Our first step will be to implement our hybrid model for APS students. As we have shared with you previously, we have strong operational and mitigation plans in place and current health data does not negatively impact our ability to implement our plans. We shared this video earlier this school year and we encourage you to watch it carefully as it outlines many of the mitigation strategies that are in place in all of our schools.
All APS staff will be expected to report to work in person at our schools starting on Monday, Jan. 11. Of course, this excludes staff members with medical exemptions. Next week will remain a remote learning week for students, so that staff have time to plan and prepare for a return to in-person learning. Students from the “A” group along with all preschool students will begin in-person learning on Jan. 19. “B” group students will begin on Jan. 25. Please see this calendar that indicates the “A” and “B” weeks. As a reminder, preschool students are not divided into two groups and will attend school every week on Mondays-Thursdays.
You will notice that on this calendar only goes through Feb. 12. This is because we intend to make our next decision about changing our learning mode by Feb. 4 if needed. This may mean increasing in-person learning opportunities or transitioning back to remote learning. This will all depend on whether current health data is allowing us to maintain our safety and mitigation plans without significant impacts. If a change in learning mode is made, the transition would start on Feb. 16. As always, we will continue to share information with you as quickly as possible.
We have developed a Remote Learning Behavioral Code of Conduct and we ask that you review it regularly with your student. Please remember that all synchronous (learning in real-time from teachers online) classes will be recorded. We will use the recorded classes for instructional purposes only and will not share them publicly. For example, the recordings may be provided to other students who were absent during the class or to other teachers for training purposes.
