Opening of Schools and Registration!!!
Posted 7/29/20

Dear Del Norte Community:

  • As you know, we will begin school remotely and online this year on August 12. We are working hard to build student schedules for the start of the school year. Please make sure you have updated your registration and enrollment for this year. We know that many of you will have a variety of questions and many of your questions will be answered soon, we are hoping by the end of this week.  We want to assure you that the very first week will be dedicated to getting you and your child ready. Starting August 12th, we will reach out to each family to check in with you and your child. We will make sure you have everything you need to get started with remote learning, and schedule a time for you to safely pick up school materials, technology, and supplies that our students will use this year. We know this year will be challenging, but we will get through this together and we will periodically update you with information as we receive information.  Online will be until October 5th, 2020 unless otherwise changed by the Governor.  
  • Again, Registration is open! Please take a minute to log into your ParentVUE account and register your child for the 2020-2021 school.! This process can be completed online. Please go ahead and get started with that as soon as possible. Then, we can start scheduling your child’s classes. Even if you were at Del Norte last year, the registration is not automatic. You still need to complete the online registration every year, and for every child. If you have questions about the enrollment process or required documentation, please email Stephanie Gaco at stephanie.gaco@aps.edu ,our Registrar, and she can help you   Here is a link to APS enrollment information, https://www.aps.edu/schools/enrollment and a link to the APS ParentVUE site to complete your registration: https://mystudentlogin.aps.edu/PXP2_Login_Parent.aspx?regenerateSessionId=True
  • Once school begins remotely for all students on August 12, the grab-and-go meals will once again be distributed through APS school sites. This will be done through the APS High Schools, so Del Norte will be a meal pick-up site this year. You can drive through to pick up two meals per day for all children under the age of 18. Many families have asked us about applications for free and reduced priced meals for children, and about PEBT cards for food support. Below there is a link to the APS website for Food and Nutrition Services where you can learn more.  https://www.aps.edu/news/coronavirus/summer-grab-and-go-meals There are links there to apply for free and reduced priced meals, as well as explanations for the PEBT program and how to apply. All of this information will be updated regularly, so check back with this website, or call the APS Food and Nutrition Services Department at (505) 345-5661 ext. 38206 for more information or assistance.  
  • We are available to help with anything, but due to public health concerns, our school buildings are not open for visitors to come inside at this time. We are working with a limited office staff on a rotating schedule to follow social-distancing guidelines. Please email Rebecca Bejcek at rebecca.bejcek@aps.edu or call our office at  505-883-7222, M-F between 7:25 AM and 3:00 PM, and we can answer any questions you have.  If we do not answer the phone, please leave a message (do not use the attendance line for this, just wait for the tone) and we will call you back as soon as possible. If you do need to come in person to bring documents, etcplease be sure to wear a mask or face-covering, and call the front desk when you arrive. We will come outside to meet you, (we wear masks, too) and help you in the safest way possible. Otherwise, we can conduct nearly all business remotely through telephone, email, or electronic uploads.  We will update our protocols and procedures as the public health situation evolves, so please be flexible with us as this information may again change.
  • We also ask that you please respond to the Census

It’s easy.

  • Responding takes only a few minutes to complete.
  • You can respond online or by phone in one of 13 languages and find assistance in many more. Language Support External link 
  • It has never been easier to respond on your own, whether online, over the phone, or by mail -- all without having to meet a census taker. It’s safe.
  • Your response is safe, secure, and confidential. Your information is protected by law.
  • We will not share your responses with immigration or law enforcement agencies.
  • By law, your answers can only be used to produce statistics.
  • Responding now will minimize the need for a census taker to follow up and visit your home later this year.
  • Census takers will wear masks when they interview households in person. The interviews are quick and can be done outside your home and 6 feet apart.
  • It’s Important. Your response matters.
  • Your response helps to direct billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities for health care, emergency response, schools, education programs, roads, and other public services.
  • Responding to the 2020 Census in this time of social distancing makes a difference for the well-being of your community and helps shape the future.
  • Results from the 2020 Census will determine the number of seats each state has in Congress and your political representation at all levels of government.
  • Complete the 2020 Census now so your community will have the resources it needs over the next 10 years.
  • An accurate census count helps communities get the resources they need for emergency and disaster response.
