AAPS Summer Learning Opportunities
In these challenging times, we want you to know that the AAPS remains your partner, committed to meeting the needs of our amazing students. We are thrilled to share that we have expanded our summer programming to provide all of our students and their families with opportunities for summer learning, improved access to instruction and support services, excellent teachers and engaging learning experiences. At our Summer Learning Opportunities website, you will find each program’s description, dates of operation, academic focus and structure and enrollment procedures.
To further assist our families to learn about Summer Learning Opportunities, the AAPS is hosting a pair of Town Hall meetings via Facebook Live on the Ann Arbor Public Schools page to share information and answer questions about the programs available. The Town Hall meetings will be Thursday, May 21st, at 4 PM and Tuesday, May 26th at 6 PM. You do not need a Facebook account to watch the live events. For individuals unable to attend the live events, video of the meetings will be shared on the district’s website after the events are concluded.
SchoolMessenger Text Messages
Over recent days some AAPS families received text messages asking for confirmation that you want to receive notifications via text about district alerts. SchoolMessenger confirms that these unscheduled opt-in messages were a result of a glitch during a system maintenance procedure. No action is needed at this time, and I apologize for any inconvenience or concern the messages may have caused.
