Principal's All Call April 11, 2020
Posted on 04/11/2020
Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope you and your families are staying well during our online Google Learning. I know digital learning can be a challenge for adults, so we appreciate everyone's patience and flexibility as we do our best to stay connected and keep your children engaged in learning. Your child can show you how to log on to their APS portal.

 

The district has created a Getting Started Guide for APS Connected Learning.  This paper guide has been sent to all schools, so it can be picked up during meal pick-up for any family who needs extra support understanding how to use their child’s Chromebook to get connected to their teachers. This paper guide can be helpful to learn how to get your child connected into their teacher's google classrooms. Teachers will continue to communicate via email and Google Classroom assignments to you and your child. I have also attached a copy to the all call email.

 

Don't forget to visit akronschools.com and click on the "APS Connected Learning" arrow at the bottom of the home page. It will take you to other resources like the Student Toolkit and Family Resources. 

 

Akron Public Schools will be having Spring Break next week, April 13th through April 17th. There will be NO meals distributed during the break. Teachers may post fun assignments over the break, but these lessons are voluntary and will not be graded.  Students may use their APS LRC resources to check out and read digital books over break.  

 

We recognize this time is not perfect for student learning, but there is no way to fully replicate the excellent teaching and learning that takes place in the classroom. I appreciate your patience and the monitoring of your children as they are online each day. Just a last note, Marking Period 3 Report Cards are being placed in the mail on Monday. It may take a couple of days, but you should receive over the Spring Break.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child's teacher, counselor or email me at imcintos@apslearns.org.

 

Have a wonderful Easter Celebration and Spring Break with your families.

Sincerely,

Mrs. McIntosh
