8/1/2021 - Summer Communication 2.0

Hello Families!


The first day of school is coming soon, Monday, August 16th, 2021!!! We are excited to reunite with and meet all of our scholars and parents/guardians.


This is going to be a year of growth for everyone and what's awesome is that none of us has to do it alone! We are excited to work with you and your scholars to recover from what last year brought to us. Please join us at the orientations to learn how we can work together as a team and make gains together (see flier below).

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021 - 8th Grade Orientation: 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Wednesday, August 4th, 2021 - 7th Grade Orientation: 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Orientation will take place in an open-house manner. The leadership team will provide a short presentation at 4:30pm and again at 5:15pm. Parents/guardians will be able to obtain scholar schedules, locker assignments, and other school and community information. We will also have a classroom to assist scholars and parent/guardians with Google Classroom downloads and sign-ins.


Please understand that your scholar is not completely enrolled if we do not have a Proof of Residency from you. This can be a copy of a utility bill or first page of your lease. Please take a picture and email to bwisher@aplsuarts.com. Unfortunately at this time, if we have not received this we will not be able to give your scholar their schedule and locker assignments until this is received. Let us know how we can work with you to support completion of enrollment.


COVID - Guidelines - please be aware that scholars and staff will be required to wear masks during the school day. This is for the protection of all. Please refer to the following link that offers up-to-date, local information about CDC guidelines. https://www.columbus.gov/publichealth/
