This weeks #APSTeacherTuesday is Key’s, General Music teacher, Olivia Crass. She shares with students, "With all of the unknown in our world, learn to lean on what you know. I know that no matter how I feel or where I am in my life, music will always be there to comfort me. Listen to its history and its stories. Learn to enjoy creating something, even if it isn’t always beautiful!"

Network Update: Connection Restored, Distance Learning to Resume, Thu, Oct. 22

We wanted to provide an update on network services. Yesterday, APS experienced a complete loss of internet service as well as the connection to our secondary data center in Ashburn. The primary cause of the outage was damage to a fiber optic cable in Vienna.
Our service provider repaired the damaged cable overnight and restored service late this morning. As of 1 p.m., APS network services have been restored.

Distance learning will resume for all students, tomorrow, Oct. 22.
If you have any technology issues, please visit https://www.apsva.us/school-year-2020-21/technical-support/.

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your continued patience.

All elementary and middle school students will receive an iPad. All high school students will receive a Macbook. Students who do not have internet access at home will be provided with it, either through a MiFi mobile hotspot or through the APS partnership with Comcast. (more details here) All device...

Network Outage Update Oct. 21, 2020: APS Closed for Distance Learning

Our Internet Service Provider has not been able to restore service and is continuing to work to resolve the issue. Due to the network outage, there will be no distance learning for students today, Oct. 21, 2020. Staff will have limited access to some network services. This network outage is due to a major fiber cut which occurred late yesterday afternoon.

Meal services are not affected and will go on as planned, and there is no impact to the Aquatics Centers.

Due to the network outage, today’s deadline for making Level 2 selections in ParentVUE for students in grades PreK-5 and select CTE courses has been extended to Fri, Oct. 23.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and again, thank you for your patience. We will continue to provide updates and will notify you when service is restored.

Network Outage Update:

Our Internet Service Provider notified us of a major fiber cut in Vienna, Virginia that is causing a service disruption for APS. The vendor is working to restore service, but at this time there is no estimate for restoration.

10/13/2020

In this week’s edition of #APSTeacherTuesday, we celebrate Alexander Konstantin, 4th Grade Teacher at Nottingham Elementary School. He has been a part of the APS community for most of his life, having graduated from Yorktown High School.

Fun fact: Mr. Konstantin currently teaches in the room across from his own 2nd grade classroom.

Mr. Konstantin has a unique perspective of APS and he loves sharing his experiences with his students. His most powerful moment while teaching happened when he saw a student he worked hard to connect with finally greet him with a huge smile for the first time, and then later that year witnessing this student’s academic success.

Happy Teacher Tuesday, Mr. Konstanin! #APSTeacherTuesday #APSisAwesome
