Free Ebooks for elementary:

Our generous vendors have given APS thousands of free multi-use Ebooks in English and Spanish until summer. Multi-use means that several students can have these Ebooks open at the same time, and they are great for the distance classroom!

Hello Georgia O'Keeffe Families,

Parent Conferences - Thank you for attending parent conferences! These conferences are crucial for building strong relationships between parents and teachers to ensure student success! We appreciate your involvement!

If you will be attending your parent/teacher conference in person, please check the lost and found ! We have a lot of items that will hopefully be picked up!

From Our School Nurse, Cristin Mann

The season for colds, flu and other viral respiratory illnesses has begun. We have had many sick children at school this week with nasal congestion, sore throat, cough and fever.

We encourage parents to test your child for Covid-19 when they have these symptoms and/or abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting,or generalized ill feeling.

Please do not send children to school if they have a fever (100.4 or higher) or have had a fever in the last 24 hours. Students must be free from fever for 24 hrs without the use of fever reducing medications such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc. prior to returning to school.

If you need Covid-19 tests, please pick them up from the school health office. If your child tests positive for Covid-19 please contact the health office.

Thank you for your support in minimizing the spread of illness.
