Dear ASAAP Parents,
We have been advised by Lamar County Schools that they are extending Spring Break with an anticipated return date of Monday, March 30th. As you are aware, the CDC is rapidly adjusting its recommendations based on continually changing information. As of today, their recommendation is to discontinue gatherings of 50 people or more to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19(Coronavirus). The MS Department of Human Services has not given us any reason to believe that we will have to close as a result of these recommendations.
As of now, Hattiesburg Public Schools and Petal Schools have not issued a statement about plans to extend Spring Break, but we will closely monitor their correspondence. As stated in previous communications, ASAAP seeks to always support the health and well-being of students and families, and we will continue to closely monitor and receive guidance from the MS Department of Human Services regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
At this time, our Central location (106 N. 38th Ave.) is open on Monday, 3/16/20 –Wednesday, 3/18/20 (7:30-6:00) of Spring Break Week, and will be opened for full day care on Monday, 3/23/20-Friday, 3/27/20 (7:30-6:00).
Registration for extended Spring Break will begin on today, Monday 3/16/20. Students that register for extended Spring Break will be billed an additional $40 to cover extended hours and meals.
Register for extended break, 3/23 – 3/27 by clicking on the following link: https://www.asaap.us/school-break-camp.html
*Due to the UNPRECEDENTED NATURE of this situation, we will automatically apply a 50% credit to student accounts that do not attend the week of 3/23-3/27.
In order to ensure the highest level of safety and to prevent the spread of germs, we are asking our families who have signed up to attend for Spring Break & Extended Spring Break to do the following:
