February 4, 2021 - Elementary Hybrid Option Information Sessions

Hello AAPS Parents, 

In this message, we are sharing more detailed information about our upcoming community information sessions designed to share with elementary parents a general overview of the in-school hybrid learning option. In this transition to offer an in-school opportunity for AAPS students, we will begin with students who experience the most significant specialized learning needs and our youngest students.

Next week, we will offer two community information sessions that will:

  • Provide general information about the hybrid learning option, 
  • Share a sample daily elementary hybrid schedule and classroom visual, and 
  • Review required district, student and parent health and safety protocols for the in-school learning environment. 

Following these general information sessions, each elementary school will host school learning community sessions to ensure that parents have the information they need to make a decision as to whether they will elect to remain fully virtual or to participate in the in-school hybrid learning option. 

As we have committed from the beginning of the year, for those who choose to remain in virtual learning, the AAPS will continue to offer a fully virtual learning experience for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. 

As parents have questions, we invite you to submit them in advance, during or following the information sessions here. We will respond to some questions during each session, and also use questions submitted from parents to inform our work as we continue to communicate and clarify the hybrid in-school option over the coming days. 

AAPS information sessions - both are the same in the information and format -  are planned for:

  • Tuesday, February 9th, at 6pm
  • Thursday, February 11th, at 4pm

Parents may view the sessions at the designated times or on demand at any time following each session here

We look forward to sharing important information as we prepare for a transition to offer an in-school hybrid option for our AAPS elementary students. 

Sincerely, 

Jeanice K. Swift
Superintendent of Schools
