A Note from Principal Hughes:


Hello Parents,

Today's All Call Announcement regarding Connected Learning on Monday:

Please find the content of today's all call message below.

This past week, all teachers at Buchtel CLC have been designing lessons that move their face-to-face instruction to online learning.  

Starting Monday, March 30, your child will join their Google Classrooms or Echo to connect with their teachers and counselors online.  Online school will run from March 30 - April 9. Spring break will begin on April 10 and run through April 17.

Many of your children's teachers have already communicated with you through Echo, Google Classroom, email or various apps like Remind. Please continue to access information from teachers on those platforms as well. 

Unfortunately, please note that at this time we cannot provide paper copies of school work. However, APS is dedicated to providing information on how to access WiFi across the city. You can find this and other important information on the APS Website. A family site is also now posted on our Akron Public Schools website with information you need to know in order to help your student. 

The current student website on all student Chromebooks will be replaced with new information about how your child will connect in Google Classrooms, check emails or use Google Hangouts to join teachers in real-time.  Please watch the videos along with your student.  

This is an uncertain time for our nation and for all of our communities. Please know that the faculty and staff of Buchtel CLC are constantly thinking about and wishing your family well. We are excited to see you virtually next week. We look forward to learning and growing other online. Please know that lunch pickups will continue daily on the campus - Monday - Thursday;  also know that students who need to have their chromebooks repaired will also be able to access repair services on our campus during meal pick up.

If you have questions, call the Engagement Center at 330.761.2810, 

OR There is a form to complete with questions on your student’s site, 

OR  you can tell them to email the Campus Principal Nicole Hughes at nhughes@apslearns.org,

OR you can contact our Family Liaison Ms. Nalaya Brown. She will be emailing a parent newsletter each Friday beginning April 3.

Finally, I would like to THANK all of our faculty, staff, you our parents  and students, and PTA for working together as we adjust during this pandemic. Special thanks to all of our secretaries, custodians, nutrition staff, TSS and Academy Principals who are working to ensure all runs smoothly.

We will get through these uncharted waters together!

If there is anything we can do to support, please let us know.



Sending our very best well wishes,

Nicole Hughes & the entire Faculty and Staff of Buchtel CLC
