Immersion Education – Teaching academic content in another language

Hello Fronteras Families!

Thank you for your continued patience while we work out the bugs and hiccups to our remote learning plans and implementation. We are working hard to make this new format as user friendly as possible. So many of you have been our cheerleaders behind the scenes – we truly appreciate your understanding and support! Please keep us informed of any difficulties you or your student is having. Our staff has shown incredible problem-solving and solution-finding skills these past two weeks; so don’t hesitate to ask for help!

Please continue to check the district website for education updates and answers to questions you may have.

Let us know what we can do for you!

Take care and stay healthy!

Most Sincerely,

Mrs. Hutchins

Be strong now because things will get better. It might be stormy now, but it can’t rain forever.

The APC Board would like our Fronteras community to know that we're here with you and for you if there is any way that we can assist.

The APC is compromised of parents, staff and community members so we are all in this together and adapting to this changing climate with you.

I want to thank Principal Hutchins and the MSBSD for keeping us all so informed and able to transition so well into online learning.

Stay safe and sane out there everyone!

Google Classroom Notifications

For those parents who don't care to get a notification every time your child's teacher posts something to Google Classroom or would prefer to receive the notifications at a set time, you can change the setting! Open one of the notifications emails and at the bottom click on "settings". When opened you'll be able to see the students you receive emails for. There's a drop down arrow under the student's email name that if clicked, it will give parents an option for how frequently they choose to see emails for that student! Please see picture below for an example!
