TRANSITION TO REMOTE LEARNING FOR All APS Students

The APS Board of Education approved a motion during their meeting last night to transition all APS students to fully remote learning for the rest of this semester. This includes all students who are currently learning in person (preschool and Kindergarten, students with special needs, newcomer students and Pickens Technical College students). This transition will start after Thanksgiving Break. The final day for in-person learning this semester will be Thursday, November 19.

Schools will be following up with families about remote learning. If you have specific questions about your child’s remote learning schedule or need access to any materials to engage in remote learning, please reach out to school staff.
