    Enrollment for Fall - Registration and In-Person or Virtual Selection

    AAPS is preparing for the 2021-22 school year and will begin sending out information on PowerSchool Enrollment (formerly called InfoSnap). In the coming week, you will receive a communication via email from noreplyregistration@powerschool.com with instructions on how to access the system for your student. The email will contain a secure "snapcode" link and instructions that connect you directly to your student’s information. If you have already set up a PowerSchool Enrollment/InfoSnap account in a prior year, you will be able to reuse that account, along with this year's unique "snapcode" link, to begin the registration. 

    This email will also include the opportunity to make your choice of in-person or virtual instruction in the fall. 

    As a reminder, all students entering young fives, kindergarten, seventh grade or new to the district will also need to present up-to-date immunization records to their school prior to the first day of school.
