APS Learning Models for the 2021-22 School Year
We look forward to ending this school year with excitement and optimism about the 2021-22 school year. As such, we wanted to provide you with as much information as possible, so that you can make the learning model choice that is best for your student for the next school year.
APS will be providing three different learning models. However, not all models will be available for all grade levels. Please watch the video below and read through the information included in the link below to make the choice that is best for your student. Please note that all APS families will need to make a choice by June 4. If you do not notify your child’s school of a selection, your student will automatically be placed into the fully in-person learning model.
- Learn more about the different models.
- Fill out a 2021-22 online learning model application for your student.
Changes to APS Snow Day Protocol
Rather than declaring traditional snow day closures for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year, we will instead have fully remote learning days for students. This will apply whether students are learning in person or remotely.
As cases of COVID-19 are confirmed positive and when there may be exposure to positive cases or symptomatic cases, Aurora Public Schools will continue to keep this information updated on our website. Please see the information below that details current COVID-19 tracking. In accordance with the Tri-County Health Department's guidelines for return to work and school, we will remove a case from the tracker below once it has been resolved.
The COVID-19 tracker tracks real-time cases in which there has been potential exposure to other students and/or staff. It is a transparent way to let our community know about current cases that require students and/or staff to take necessary and important health precautions (e.g. quarantining). If a positive case does not impact any other students and/or staff (because the individual was at home), it is considered personal health information and is not shared on the tracker. However, our Health Services Department does share information about all positive cases with the Tri-County Health Department.
*Important Update: Starting on Friday, April 22, APS discontinued sending schoolwide notification messages about potential exposure to symptomatic cases. APS will continue to send out schoolwide notification messages about potential exposure to positive cases.*
We have created an email address to respond to specific concerns related to the district’s COVID-19 response. If you have concerns about current health guidelines or protocols that are in place, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please know that we will work to respond within three business days or as quickly as possible. This email address was created to respond quickly and directly to individuals who share concerns. As such, we cannot respond to anonymous emails or those that do not include any specific information.
