COVID-19
Update 4-3-2020
A-P Schools will be closed until April 30, 2020. Our focus is to continue to support the students and our families with online distance learning and educational enrichment opportunities. We ask that you please respect social distancing during this time period. All district buildings are closed and all activities cancelled. This includes any open gym, athletic practice, rehearsal, or any other activity otherwise sanctioned or not by the school district. Our highest goals are to keep students, staff, and community safe; to offer assistance in class completion and graduation; and to support our students and families. Stay safe, Falcons!

Please watch for further details related to educational expectations and engaging learning opportunities.

Last night the Governor of Iowa recommended all schools in the State close for a period of 4 weeks. Aplington-Parkersburg Community School District will comply with that request. Therefore, effective immediately, all district buildings are closed and all activities are cancelled. This includes any open gym, athletic practice, rehearsal, or any other activity otherwise sanctioned or not by the school district. Facilities will be accessible only to those personnel essential for continuity of operations for this week (3/16-3/20); initially including administrators, business office clerical staff, custodians, maintenance staff, and contractors. We are waiting for further guidance and acceptable processes from the State, Department of Education, and Public Health Department. This is a very dynamic and fluid situation, and more information will be forthcoming as available.

Our highest goals are first and foremost to keep our students, staff, and community safe; support course completion and graduation; and to not overburden students and families. We are striving to meet our public community school responsibilities and serve the larger common good. We will send further communications as information and guidance are secured. You are welcome to contact your building principal if you need to come to school to get any support materials or mobile technology devices. We greatly appreciate your patience, understanding, and calm leadership as educational professionals.
