Board Decision: AXL Moves Into Remote Learning On Oct. 26
Dear AXL Families,
I want to let you know a decision that was made tonight regarding the safety of our staff and scholars for in-person learning due to the ever changing data from Tri-County Health and CDPHE. Our Board of Directors felt it would be in the best interest of our AXL family to move into remote learning for the entire school starting on Monday, October 26.
Our Board did not make this decision lightly and will be meeting every two weeks to review data and define a Board Matrix to define the data to ensure the decisions being made are not only in the best interest of our families but also is considering the data of Arapahoe County.
Free Grab-and-Go Meals APS will continue to offer free meals for families. Families can pick up free meals at any of our 47 drive-through grab-and-go locations. Meal pick up is from 10:45-11:30 a.m. Monday-Friday. Most APS high schools also have an evening pick-up time from 4:45-5:30 p.m.
Social Emotional Supports for Students Social-emotional learning will be a key component of remote learning. In addition, all students will continue to have remote access to mental health resources including APS psychologists, social workers, counselors and other school staff. The health and wellbeing of our students is our top priority. Click here for more information on APS mental health resources and supports.
If your scholar needs a computer for remote learning, please fill out this form. We will have pick-up on Friday and next week. School-Time Remote Learning Childcare We have partnered with organizations throughout our community to offer school-time childcare. Our plan is to continue offering care for students at the current offsite locations (Colorado Community Church, Dayton Opportunity Center, and Salvation Army) and to temporarily provide care at seven school locations until four City of Aurora Parks and Recreation Centers open in the near future. Students will be supervised by professional childcare staff while they are at the remote learning centers.
