    COVID Health & Safety Information

    Additional information regarding COVID health and safety protocols will continue to be provided in future communications.  Please look at Superintendent Swift’s 8/6/21 email with the subject “AAPS Summer Superintendent Update Aug 6” for additional health and safety information.

    You may view a video of this week’s COVID Health and Safety Update here and you may review last week’s Summer Update and back-to-school information here.

    • School group meetings and gatherings (Curriculum Night, IEP, Achievement Team, etc.) will be conducted virtually until further notice.

    • Our work together for this school year is to keep our schools open by maintaining a healthy and safe school environment for both students and staff. 

    • With all students in schools full-time, AAPS will not always be able to maintain three feet of social distancing. Grouping students in cohorts is not possible at the middle and high school levels.

    • This increases the importance of the other mitigation measures; vaccination for all who are eligible, universal mask-wearing, staying home when sick, ventilation, cleaning and testing.

    • AAPS will work to provide the maximum space possible for students at lunchtime as individual schools allow, yet will not always achieve three feet of distance while students are eating.

    • Parents play an important role by getting eligible students vaccinated, keeping children home when sick, limiting potential exposure to COVID outside of school and making sure children are up-to-date on required immunizations.

    • AAPS offers virtual options for families uncomfortable with sending children to school in-person at this time at 


    Please read the following recommendations that apply to all students:

    • All students should monitor themselves closely for COVID-19 symptoms and review their exposure risk daily using this questionnaire
    • Any student with even mild symptoms should stay home, get tested and quarantine until results come back. Anyone with a positive test result should alert the school office immediately and isolate for 10 days at home. The WCHD has information about local testing locations here
    • AAPS continues to encourage vaccination for students ages 12 and older. Vaccinated students are less likely to become sick, and do not have to quarantine if exposed and have no symptoms. The COVID-19 vaccine is widely available at drug stores, doctor’s offices, and at the Washtenaw County Health Department

    We urge all families and students to monitor themselves closely for symptoms of COVID-19 and be cautious outside of school to reduce their exposure risk. 



    Every vaccine we achieve in Ann Arbor contributes to a safer community for our students, many of whom cannot yet receive vaccination, and for all of us. The Washtenaw County Health Department has information about the COVID-19 vaccination, including how to make an appointment here and other locations that are offering the vaccine here.
