As you may be aware, neighboring districts are experiencing high levels of COVID cases impacting their ability to continue face-to-face instruction. APS would like to prevent additional spread across our district. We encourage everyone to wear a mask, remain socially distanced and continue best practice sanitization strategies. Masks will be available at school, on our buses and in all offices.
Finally some outside play! Weather is much warmer today! Remember to pack your kiddo’s snow pants!

As we continue to update you regarding the safety protocols in our schools, we wanted to be sure that you all are aware of a “challenge” that is currently being led by the social media platform, Tik Tok. This evening we learned of a nation-wide challenge on Tik Tok, encouraging users to make threats of violence against their schools on Friday, December 17th.
Once again, we are asking for your help as parents/guardians. Please talk to your children about this type of social media challenge and encourage them to speak out against it. Remind your students of the consequences of this behavior. Sometimes our students do not realize the serious consequences or threats to the safety of our schools and community until it is too late.
There have been no threats specific to APS. This is informational only.
Today our preschool and kindergarten friends had “Gingerbread Day”! Lots of fun creating gingerbread houses! Thank you to all the parents that supplied treats to help!
Luce Road staff and students did a great job practicing our ALICE drill today. Reminder that Luce Road is always in a soft lockdown as ALL of our outside doors are locked at all times and visitors must buzz in at the office to enter.
