Good Evening ARD Families,

It was great to see the students back in the building and they have been amazing. I think they exceeded everyone’s expectations at how easily they acclimated to the protocols that are in place to help keep everyone safe. The hybrid model made our school opening manageable and it allowed staff, students, and administration to problem solve and adjust routines and practices. Staff are taking advantage of the nice weather and the tents we have to get students outside as much as possible for classes and breaks.

Thank you for all your support and helping your student return to school and learning.

Shannon Kruger, ASD Principal
