Resources For Parents During District Closure

March 17, 2020

Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these difficult and uncharted times due to the closing of our district through April 3, 2020.   We know there are many questions and Aurora R-VIII staff will do our best to address your concerns.   

Resources, including iPads, will be available for students in kindergarten through 8th grade beginning Monday, March 23 (materials, but not devices, will be available for preschool students). These grade level resources will be review activities of previously taught skills and concepts.  The resource packets are optional and are not requirements.  Students in kindergarten through 8th grade will also be able to checkout iPads at this time.  Students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) will also have personalized packets available in the office.  We ask that you let office staff know if you are picking up an individualized packet when you come. 

Curb-side pickup will be in the front loop of each building on Monday, March 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.   We ask that you call each building as you arrive in the parking lot and a school employee will bring the resource packet and iPad to your vehicle.  If you are unavailable to arrive during these times, please contact school personnel to make an appointment for pick up at a later time.  Numbers for each office can be found below.  

Again, we appreciate your patience and understanding during this closure of the district.  We will continue to monitor information as it becomes available and make changes as necessary.  Please call Central Office at 417-678-3373 if you have any questions.
