  7. K-5 Learning Choice For...

Dear Families:

As indicated in our school reopening plan, families can elect to have their students in grades K-5 transition from virtual learning to in-person instruction or from in-person instruction to virtual learning at the end of the first trimester. The start date for the second trimester is Monday, December 7th.

At the elementary level, some of our teachers are teaching virtually, while others are teaching in-person, which is different than what we are doing at the secondary level. Consequently, students who change models will be moving into a new class with a new teacher. This presents some unique challenges (e.g., class size limitations, maintaining proper social distancing for the in-person classrooms, differences in pacing of curriculum between classrooms). As a result, to provide the best learning environment and continuity of instruction for our students, this will be the final opportunity for families to change the instructional model for the remainder of the school year.

NOTE: This is only for students in grades K-5. A separate email was sent on October 14th for students in grades 6-12.

100% Virtual to In-Person

Parents/guardians wishing for their child(ren) to return to our in-person model on December 7th must complete the Virtual to In-Person request form for each student by Friday, November 13th. Please note that in making this request, we will make every effort to place your child in the school they attended last year, but because of safety precautions and space limitations, this cannot be guaranteed.

In-Person to 100% Virtual

Parents/guardians wishing for their child(ren) to change to the virtual learning option on December 7th must complete the associated In-Person to Virtual request form for each student by Friday, November 13th. Please note that in making this request, your child will be assigned a new teacher that is dedicated to only virtual students.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact your child’s building principal or you can email Matt Hladun, the Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning, at  hladunm@apcsd.org.
