Updated Registration Info
Posted 7/24/20

From Mr. Gutierrez: 

 

I wanted to give everyone an update given the Governor's recent order that schools will not begin in person until September 8. If schools are allowed to open in person that week, elementary schools will open first with middle and high schools remaining online for a phase re-entry. 

 

With that in mind there are some important updates I want to share with you: 

1. In person Registration scheduled for August 6 has been cancelled. We will work with families to finish their registration online through ParentVue. You can update information and even use your phone to take pictures of important papers and upload those. If you need any assistance with those things, please call or email our Attendance Clerk, Ms. Cheromiah. If you have not started the registration process you will be receiving a phone call from Ms. Cheromiah, myself, or Assistant Principal Mr. LaClair to see if you need any help. 

 

2. Typical parts of registration like taking student ID photos and getting a paper copy of your student's schedule will be slightly altered. When students can come back to school in person, we will take their ID photo then, which would whenever the phased re-entry for middle schools begins. And when we can share your student's schedule through ParentVue and StudentVue we will do so, then you can see the class schedule. Hopefully this can be done the week of August 12th or sooner. In terms of the schedule, please keep in mind that your child's schedule is subject to change based on the possibility of having to change class sizes to meet the social distancing guidelines when students come back in alphabetic by last name groups on alternating weeks. 

 

3. Jumpstart for 6th graders is postponed from the scheduled date of August 6 since we cannot do that safely within the governor's health orders. We know how important it is to connect with our rising 6th grade scholars,  class of 2027, and we will meet with them probably in a virtual format. I will send those details after I meet with my school's Instructional Council. 

 

4. For distance learning, we will need to distribute Chromebooks to every student, especially those who don't have one from last school year. The district is working hard to make sure every student in APS will have their own device and we will begin our distribution as soon as we are cleared to do so. It will more than likely be a grab and go format outside and will likely occur in the next few weeks, no later than the first week of school, August 12. I will send out the details as soon as I can.
