THANK YOU!!!


We understand the enormous responsibility and challenges that Remote Learning has placed on parents, guardians, and scholars as you had to create time, space, routines, and support for learning at home. We realize that all of our families are experiencing a difficult time and that there are many other needs, in addition to scholar learning, that are critical as we work through this crisis together.


We honor and thank all of you during this holiday season for your kindness, patience and resilience, and the fortitude and determination you have demonstrated during this time.

No More Class Dojo- VERY IMPORTANT



Effective December 31, 2020, A+ Arts Academy will no longer be using Class Dojo to communicate with parents and track student data. We are using Kickboard as our platform and invite ALL PARENTS to add Kickboard and sign up today. Your scholar's teacher can provide you with log-in information.


If you haven't yet done so, please get you and your scholar connected to Kickboard so you can stay in the know as to classroom happenings and their behavior and classroom contributions!

Technology Tips and Help Desk


Device Care & Tips

Many of our scholars have received devices for virtual learning.

Below are a few tips to prevent the devices from low performance, damage, or accidental lost.

Ø Ensure the case remains on the IPad or Chromebook.

Ø Ensure food and drink are not around the device.

Ø Ensure scholars are stationary when using the device.

Ø Monitor data usage on the hotspot.

Ø When lessons have concluded for the day, ensure the scholar places the device in the same location for the next day.

Ø Ensure that your scholar's device is plugged in at the end of the day in order to be fully charged for the next school day.

If you have any questions regarding your scholar’s device, please contact: Harold Reed at hereed@aplusarts.com or 614-725-1305 ext.1001.


Help Desk: PLA has a help desk to help meet your technology needs. Please see the link below.
