Alexandria City Public Schools is still hoping to hear from local parents whether they are comfortable sending their children back to school.
“We are extending the deadline for the Family Choice Form until Friday, Dec. 18,” ACPS said. “We have not yet heard from everyone and we need to hear from all our families to be able to refine our transition plan to reopen our school buildings for in-person learning.”
A survey of teachers in November found that around half of the teaching staff said they would not be comfortable returning, but staff noted that advances in the vaccine process could help waylay those concerns along.
Parents responding to the form have the choice of a hybrid model that’s part in-person and part-virtual, or 100% virtual as classes have been for much of this year.
Parents can complete the form online, by phone, or by contacting their school.
For those seeking responding by phone, the following options are available:
