While our area has yet to experience much winter weather in the 2021-22 school year, ACPS has planned for the days when in-person instruction may not be possible. The ACPS Express edition on Dec. 3 explained the winter weather decisions and communications so families understand the notification process and the continuation of learning during these unforeseen winter weather conditions. Our goal is to support continuity of learning while also preserving any future days when schools may need to close.
When schools close due to snow or other inclement weather during the 2021-22 school year, these days will be virtual learning days. All instruction will be asynchronous on these days. Asynchronous learning happens when students learn the same material but at different times and locations, without live instruction. Teachers will be available for office hours for students and this will be communicated by each school. Students will have access to assignments, apps and resources through Canvas and/or Clever. On these days, students need to simply log in to Clever or Canvas for attendance purposes. No new content nor grades will be assigned on these virtual learning days.
