Students: Please bring along your schedule which can be viewed in StudentVUE.

Parents: You will drop off your student in the loop (accessible from Girard). Please drive until the end of the loop to release your student (closer to Lomas). This is where you can also pick up your student when their tour is over.

Tours typically last 30 minutes.

Catch a ride if you can.

APS doesn’t have enough bus drivers to resume all routes, so it’s prioritizing transportation for students and areas with the highest needs. Walking groups and carpools are encouraged as safe options, and students can ride city buses for free. Please let your school know if you need help with transportation.

AVID Strategy for Learning 

Are you looking for an AVID strategy to help your child process something they are learning about right now?

Try an AVID D.L.I.Q. Learning Log.

Pick up a book, article, or magazine, watch a documentary or take a virtual visit to a museum. Your student can write about what they DID, what they LEARNED, what they found INTERESTING and what QUESTIONS they have. This is an effective way to write about and process something learned.

Encourage students to share their learning logs with their teachers!
