Dear APS Community,
Thank you for your continued patience as we review updated public health guidance and plan for the upcoming school year. We want to continue to keep you updated with important information as quickly as possible. On Friday, the APS Board of Education provided direction during their meeting about the start of the school year. With the Board’s direction, APS will be starting in a fully remote learning model for the beginning of the school year. This decision was made considering the recent rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in both Adams and Arapahoe counties.
Students will be learning remotely from home through the first quarter, which ends on October 8. A decision about whether to begin in-person learning at that time will be made in the coming months taking into consideration health data on COVID-19 cases in our community.
The 2020-21 school year starts soon and we want all students to be ready for the first day of class. Student check in starts tomorrow, July 1. Parents or guardians must check in their returning students using the APS Student Check-in System before the start of the school year. The Student Check-in System is a convenient way for parents and guardians to update or confirm addresses, phone numbers, emergency contacts, health information, preferred language and more. To access the online system, visit your school’s website or log into the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. If you have an email address on file with us, you should have received an email with your username. If you did not receive it, please contact the APS Help Desk at 303-340-0520 or ext. 28203 or contact your school after July 16.
The Student Check-in System is available in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal in English and Spanish as well as Amharic, Nepali and French.
As we plan for the start of the 2020-21 school year in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize that every family is unique and has different values, needs and challenges. Some families are eager to get their children back into in-person classrooms. Others will prefer to keep their children at home every day to learn remotely. During the check in process, we will be asking if you prefer that your student stay at home every day to learn remotely or attend school in-person.
Parents will also have the opportunity to complete the Free and Reduced Lunch Application as part of the online check-in process. Families must also complete this application every school year to determine if they qualify for free or reduced meal prices.

We are thrilled to have permission from Tri-County Health to hand out diplomas to the Class of 2020.
PLEASE READ ALL DIRECTION CAREFULLY.
Diploma distribution will take place on Friday, July 10th in the Rangeview High School student, main parking lot. Please bring a photo ID with you.
The times to pick up your diploma are 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. OR 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
A guardian may pick up a student's diploma but must have the student ID with them to do so.
Rangeview's in-person graduation will take place at 8:00 a.m. on July 23rd. Below you will find a Google form letting us know if you plan to attend graduation on July 23rd. If you do not plan to attend the in-person graduation, you must turn in your rented graduation robe at diploma pick up next week.
Please fill out the Google form as soon as possible so we can complete a personalized slide for each graduate. More information will come regarding details around graduation once we receive them from the district.
Be well, Raiders.
