Buenas tardes Familia AAV,

Mientras buscamos comenzar nuestra primera semana oficial completa de Educación a Distancia, quería comunicarme con nuestra familia AAV con otro mensaje.

Nuestro personal terminó una semana increíble de colaboración y trabajo incansable para garantizar que las aulas digitales estén disponibles para ellos el jueves 2 de abril. Hemos publicado las horas de oficina de cada escuela en nuestra página web, así que compruebe usted las actualizaciones con la mayor frecuencia posible. A pesar de que los maestros estarán disponibles por correo electrónico y otros medios para comunicarse con sus estudiantes durante todo el día, queríamos asegurarnos de que hubiera tiempo dedicado para que las familias también pudieran planificar.

Good evening AAV Family,

As we look to begin our first official full week of Distance Learning I wanted to reach out to our AAV family with another message.  Our staff finished an amazing week of collaboration and tireless work to ensure digital classrooms would be available to them by Thursday April 2nd. We have posted each schools office hours on our web page so please check for updates as often as possible. Even though teachers will be available through email and other means they will communicate to their students throughout the day, we wanted to make sure there was dedicated time families could plan around as well.
