Pre-K Through Grade 6 Re-Opening Update

Dear Patriot Families:

First, I want to take the time to thank all parents and students for their support through these ever-evolving times. We know it hasn’t been easy and we truly miss our students!

We are now headed into our final quarter of school and wanted to provide you with a very important update.

Our goal has always been to return to a “normal” school schedule as quickly and safely as possible. The regulations have limited our ability to bring back all students as desired. The most recent updates received, while decreasing classroom spacing, has not addressed all areas required for a full PreK-12 return to an in-person schedule.

However, we are very pleased to announce that we are planning to bring back Pre-K through Grade 6 students on a 5 day a week in-person schedule in both of our elementary buildings beginning on Thursday, May 6th. This return will allow all students within these grades to choose in-person learning or remain fully remote. Below, please find a specific commitment survey link to complete. It will be imperative that all PreK-6th grade families submit their learning model choice by the deadline of Thursday, April 22nd by clicking the survey link below:

While we were really hoping to bring all grade levels back at this time, we are unable to bring back our Middle and High School students due to the current CDC regulations and status regarding this age group. This includes physical spacing, cohorting, and transportation.

Additional information will be provided by School Principals in the coming weeks. Please note that this plan could change due to COVID conditions and other health regulations. We look forward to seeing our students and thank you for all of your support!

Sincerely,

Paul Savage, Superintendent and the AVCS Administrative Team
