October 21, 2021 - Notice of Remote Learning Huron - Skyline - Forsythe
Ann Arbor Public Schools
Huron, Skyline and Forsythe School Communities,
The health and safety of students and staff will continue as our top priority in the Ann Arbor Public Schools.
Due to high levels of staff illness and absences across all of the AAPS, Huron High School, Skyline High School, and Forsythe Middle School will move to a day of remote, asynchronous learning for tomorrow, Friday, October 22, 2021.
This is an emergency measure made necessary due to numerous unfilled positions across the district and an inability to fully staff our schools for tomorrow. Taking this step to remote learning with these three schools that were most critically impacted by staffing challenges, will allow the AAPS to redeploy substitute personnel to assist with the shortage of staff across other buildings and stretch the resources to staff the remaining schools.
At Huron, Skyline, and Forsythe, students will move to remote learning for the day; teachers and staff will be in communication to share asynchronous lessons for students via Schoology, school webpage, or email.
We understand that this announcement is coming to you late this evening, and we appreciate your support in making this transition on such short notice.
Our students, teachers, school teams, parents and community are all working incredibly hard together, making sacrifices every day to sustain the opening of our schools this Fall; we are making progress.
Thank you for your support as we continue to work through the challenges we face together.
Jeanice K. Swift
Superintendent of Schools
