Information About The Remainder of the 2019-2020 School Year

District leadership has informed us that currently there is no staff or student access to APS School Buildings.  Plans will be developed for access to belongings later this Spring.

Dear Community Members, 

As many of you know, upon becoming aware of the spread of COVID-19 in Colorado and the myriad concerns inherent, school superintendents took action several weeks ago to protect students, staff and the community. We have been working hard to provide leadership guidance to families throughout Colorado. As school superintendents, we consult and collaborate many times each day to share thinking and to problem solve as a regional group.

Two days ago, on April 1, Governor Polis announced extended closures of schools in Colorado through April 30, 2020. Over the past several weeks, we have spoken regularly and often to public health officials and state officials to better understand the timeline and path forward for the year, both with regard to COVID-19 and “traditional” school year expectations. We understand that there are not specific answers to exactly how and when we return to “life as normal” during this unprecedented health crisis. Given that, we must rely upon our best judgement and place safety above all else.

SELECT SITES FOR STUDENT TO MAINTAIN SKILLS

Below is a select list of websites from our staff to help students maintain their skills. This list is not comprehensive and students can feel free to reach out to their teachers. Some may not be available so have patience. Students can also check in on Google classroom for any resources their teachers may post. Please be careful to not sign up for a lot of sites who say they can "fill in." Often those sites offer a free trial period and then become a paid account. 

Internet Essentials program for possible reduced costs for internet access. Click here to see if you qualify.

This chart is unfinished. We are adding more to it in the next couple of days.

Extended Break Breakfast & Lunch Program

During the extended Spring Break, Aurora Public Schools will be distributing FREE breakfast and lunch. These meals will be provided on weekdays starting tomorrow through Friday and then again next week Monday through Friday at 15 locations to ALL children 18 and under. Both meals, which include vegetarian options, will be available together for pickup through a grab-and-go system.

Meals will be available starting tomorrow through Friday and then again next week Monday through Friday at the following locations and times. APS is providing meals at as many locations as possible to reduce travel distances for families. You will notice that the windows for meal pick up are 25 minutes long. Although this may seem short, we believe this window will allow us to provide for a grab-and-go system while also helping us maximize the number of pick-up locations and serve the highest number of families throughout the district

Please note the starting time for the location that is nearest to your home. Here is a map of the meal distribution sites in Aurora.

If APS extends Spring Break past March 27, the district will communicate the plans for providing meals at that time. APS will continue to communicate via phone calls, emails and our website at aurorak12.org
