Hi Owl Families,

Thank you for those of you who were able to join us this morning for Coffee with the Principal.  For those unable to attend, or who want to watch it again, please find the recording of this morning’s presentation linked HERE.  We have attached the February 1 return to school presentations to this message for your convenience.  The most important thing for your family to do is to let us know if you want to CHANGE the option you selected for your student in the fall.  If you want to CHANGE your choice, please email or call Ms. Rodriguez at (720) 437 - 9814.  If you want to keep your selection, no action is needed.  As you review the presentation, please note the differences between the APS Hybrid return to school and our plan at AST/DSST so you can make the choice that is best for your family.

Hi Owl Families, 

Thank you to those of you who attended Coffee with the Principal yesterday!  It was a very well attended event, and I hope it was both informative and helpful as you make a decision for what is best for your familiy - having your student(s) stay online or having your student(s) come back in a hybrid manner.  I have attached the presentation I shared in English and in Spanish and you can find the video of the event if you click here - Watch Coffee with the Principal/Hybrid Return to School.

As I mentioned this morning, please reach out if you would like to talk or have additional questions.  I will know more about the schedule, drop off and pick up exact times, and details of exactly which classes will be proctor but taught virtually (meaning your student would experience class as they currently are but from a proctored classroom) and which courses would be taught concurrently (meaning the teacher is teaching half the class in person and half the class online at the same time) in mid-October. 

Again here are the powerpoints and the video to help in the decision making process:

1. Watch the Coffee with the Principal from yesterday here - Watch Coffee with the Principal/Hybrid Return to School.

2. Powerpoint in English.

3. Powerpoint in Spanish.

Don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions or want to talk more!  Once you have made a decision as a family, please fill out THIS SURVEY by 5pm on October 7th.  If you do not complete the survey by 5pm on 10/7 you child will be automatically enrolled in virtual learning for the remainder of Trimester 1.

With Owl Pride,
