From Our Executive Director: H.O.W.L Platform Launches for Offsite Learning

Our remote learning program launches. Dubbed the Home/Offsite Wolves Learning – or HOWL – platform, we’ve built a central website that all students, teachers and parents will access during the closure. It will continue to be loaded with lessons, videos, messages from teachers and administrators, sample schedules, expectations for parents and students and more. Students will start at the HOWL page for lessons and activities during the closure, and parents/caregivers are encouraged to check the site regularly for the information necessary to support their students. Once there, select “elementary” or “middle”, and then the appropriate grade level. We will continue to add resources and guidance over the coming days.

Gather & Grow – Now More Than Ever

Now more than ever, we will need to be a reliable source of support for families as incomes become less secure and the local economy is disrupted. As we push through this uncertainty, we are asking that you help us continue to do what we’ve always done in an even bigger way. We are keeping our kitchen open as a regular source of nutritious food; we have stretched our supply of laptops and electronic devices to ensure that every family can stay connected to our remote platform; and we are establishing ways to stay in contact with students that we support through all types of crises.

Due to the Coronavirus, all APS schools have closed and moved to offsite learning platforms. We hope families will visit our H.O.W.L regularly throughout the school closure for information about schedules, lessons, announcements and other resources related to the closure.
