  7. Instructional Models for Upcoming...

Averill Park CSD Families,

Instructional Models for the Week of 2/1 and 2/8

Our current targeted approach of returning students to in-person instruction is thankfully going well at this time. This targeted approach includes a very deliberate strategy aimed at maximizing the number of students we can have in-person in a long-term, sustainable, and consistent manner, while simultaneously meeting the needs of and creating opportunities for our students, including our high school specialized programs. We are cautiously optimistic that the district will be able to maintain staffing levels throughout all of our grade levels in the coming weeks.

As a result, I am pleased to announce that the high school will return to in-person, hybrid learning on Monday, Feb. 8, unless notified otherwise. The high school will remain in a remote setting next week (Feb. 1-5) so the first semester can finish in the current model which allows for consistency in instruction. Students will return on Feb. 8 to coincide with the beginning of the high school’s second semester.

For your reference, the details for staying in the current model for the week of Feb.1 are below:

  • K-5 will continue with in-person instruction.
  • Algonquin Middle School students will continue with in-person, hybrid instruction.
  • High School students will remain in a remote setting until returning in-person hybrid on Monday, Feb. 8.
    • Students in Mrs. Ryan’s APHS 12-1-1 class will continue in-person instruction.
    • Students in our half-day in-house CTE programs at APHS (Auto Tech 1, Auto Tech 2, Construction Tech 2, and Construction Practicum) will continue in-person instruction.
    • Students in Robotics will continue in-person learning per their instructor.
    • Some musical performance groups at APHS will continue to attend rehearsals in-person next week.
    • The Athletic Department will continue to offer in-person athletic opportunities consistent with current state and local health and safety guidelines.
