Power Outages Impact Operations and Virtual Teaching and Learning – No school 10/30

Atlanta Public Schools (APS) is closely monitoring the current power outages in the metro Atlanta area and the impact on virtual teaching, learning, and teleworking. Given the uncertainty of when power will be restored for many of our students and staff, Friday, October 30, will be a non-instructional day for students and a remote workday for APS teachers and other district staff. Students have access to online tools for any self-guided work and should use this time to complete homework or address incomplete assignments. Administrative staff will have access to District buildings on Friday, and essential workers, including custodians, maintenance workers, transportation staff, and school resource officers are expected to report to their worksite at their usual time to help with recovery efforts.

The status of any previously planned activities on school campuses will be determined by local schools, and a decision about any athletic activities scheduled for Friday, October 30 will be made on Friday afternoon. Parents, caregivers, and employees at APS charter schools are encouraged to contact their schools directly for scheduling information.

APS is expected to resume virtual learning and normal operations on Monday, November 2.
