Superintendent Update from Board of Education Meeting
We have set our course to offer an in-school hybrid learning opportunity this spring. We will also continue to provide virtual learning for those families that prefer to continue learning remotely during this COVID school year.
At this current time, we will continue with AAPS classrooms in virtual learning while monitoring levels of community spread. Though we have observed some reduction in cases over previous days, Washtenaw County remains at a high-risk level on the MI Safe Start Map.
We have offered AAPS community information sessions this week to share general information about the elementary in-school hybrid learning opportunity. At this time, we will continue to watch this unfolding COVID situation, week by week, and notify our AAPS community when there are updates to share.
You may watch the video of the update to the Board of Education here.
