Dear Families,
 
AUSD extends our support to you as we navigate school closures together. Our school facilities are closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year for in-person learning.  Distance Learning is still taking place.  All administrators, teachers, and staff will be working to support students and will be available through email, phone and/or virtual options such as Google Hangouts, Zoom, Google Classroom. We want to be sure students have structure and routine during this time as they maintain their academic skills. We are asking all students to include the following into their daily routines:
  • 30-60 minutes reading a choice book
  • 30 minutes of physical exercise
  • 30 minutes of practice in an art area (drawing, singing, playing their instrument, etc)
We encourage social distancing, no assignments will require physical presence.
 

What is Distance Learning?Top of Page

To ensure the continuity of teaching and learning, Distance Learning instruction has been implemented district-wide.  Distance Learning is instruction in which the main elements include physical separation of teachers and students during instruction and the use of various technologies to facilitate student-teacher and student-student communication.  The intent of Distance Learning is not to replace the experience a student has in his or her classroom, but to support students with continued learning while away from campus. The lesson plans and activities teachers organize will help students progress to the end of the year goals.
