Return to In-Person Instruction

We are excited to welcome students to campus on Monday, April 12 for in-person instruction! All students electing to return for in-person instruction have been assigned to either an A or B Group. Students can find their group in their PowerSchool ONLINE (not in the app) under "grades and attendance." Next to the name, you will see either Group A or Group B.

  • A Group/Cohort will attend in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays from 7:30 am to 12:00 pm.

  • B Group/Cohort will attend in-person on Thursdays and Fridays from 7:30 to 12:00 pm.

  • Both A and B Group/Cohort will participate at-home, online on Wednesdays.

Students electing to remain learning at-home are noted in Powerschool as Group/Cohort C. These students will continue to learn virtually Monday through Friday. There will be no change to these students' schedules.

If you have questions about your student’s program, please contact your school office. Contact information can be found on each school’s website.

STOP-it Safe Screening

As a reminder, all students attending in-person instruction must complete a self-screening assessment on the STOPit website prior to entering the campus. Your student received information to their school email account that provides directions on how to access the website and create an account. Students will be asked to show their screening pass as they enter campus for in-person instruction. If you have questions or need support creating your student’s account, please contact your school’s administration.

The STOPit SafeScreen is a web-based, HIPAA-compliant, data-encrypted application designed for any internet-connected device or smartphone in order to ensure access by all.

First Day of In-Person School Pictures

We’d love to see your student’s first day of in-person school pictures & feature them in our social media and future updates! Please send your picture, along with your student’s name and school to info@avhsd.org.
