Important Update – Remote Learning for Session 3 High School

APS Community,

As we shared with you last week, we continue to regularly review health data and make decisions that are in the best interest of students, staff and families.

Community transmission of COVID-19 continues to increase as high school students were set to return to in-person learning this week. Considering high school students have not yet started in-person learning, we have made the difficult decision to delay the start of in-person learning for high school students. 

High school students will now continue to learn fully remotely from home for their next 20-day session, which lasts through Friday, November 13. We plan to make a decision about the following 20-day session by Monday, November 9. If there is a transition to in-person learning for high school students, it would start on Monday, November 16. 

Please note that high school students who are currently learning in person because of their specialized learning needs will continue to be provided with those in-person learning opportunities. This includes students with special needs, newcomer students who are in early stages of English language development and Career & Technical education students at Pickens Technical College.

Under CHSSA guidance, off-season athletic workouts for high school students will be held as scheduled. Clubs and Activities will continue to be provided remotely. 

High school staff will continue to work in-person from our buildings on Mondays-Thursdays in order to prepare for a potential transition back to in-person learning.

While high school students are learning remotely, please remember that families can pick up free meals from any of APS’ Grab and Go locations

Students in grades preschool through eighth grade began in-person learning last week. We are planning to make a decision by Thursday, October 22 about whether students in grades preschool through eighth grade will need to transition back to fully remote learning. 

We continue to work closely with the Tri-County Health Department. We are committed to providing as much in-person learning as is safely possible throughout our district. Once again, I sincerely thank you for your continued flexibility, grace and support. 

- Superintendent Rico Munn

Interact Club Collects Books for a Community Project

This past weekend Interact Club ran a book drive and we had twenty-four  students (all masked and socially distant) collecting, disinfecting, sorting and building a library of over 1000 books.  We had a steady stream of community members donating and were pleased to have the Rotary Club's support.  Our students made us Rangeview proud.  Barmen Curtis Basham, Linda Witulski and Mrs. Napue gave their time and support.  Thank you to everyone who donated.  We are going to use the books to stock book boxes we are building and giving homes in the Rangeview community and connecting with some feeder elementary and middle schools to give out books in the upcoming month.
