Asheville Primary School
APS Family Connection 8/19/2020
Our preschoolers are doing an amazing job keeping it safe...and clean!
- creating at home learning packets for you to use for lessons
- getting in contact with EVERY child and family
- setting up accounts for remote learning
- getting all children set up with devices for instruction
It will seem to start at a much slower pace than in other years, but the behind the scenes work is anything, but slow. All of our staff are pulling together to help make sure that every child gets a strong start to the school year.
You should expect lots of communication from your child's classroom teacher through emails, phone calls, texts, and Google Meets. You will start to see communication from other staff as the year gets started (i.e. Enhancements, support staff, EC teachers, etc.)
Device/Materials Pick Up
If you are using an Asheville City Schools device, you will be asked to pay a device fee of $35 for the year. If you would like to fill out a waiver form for a reduced rate ($5), please let a staff member know. It is a simple form and can be filled out on site. The link below is available for you to pay fees online with a debit or credit card.
There will be LOTS of items sent home. It is important to keep those materials in a special place in your home. Designate a space for learning and keep your materials in that area. This will be important for lesson participation.
If you have a conflict with Thursday and Friday, please reach out to your child's teacher.
