Dear APS Head Start Families,
Today we received notification that a positive COVID-19 case has impacted our Porter Head Start Classroom. We have been and will continue to work in partnership with LISD and the Lenawee County Health Department during this time. In consultation with the Lenawee County Health Department we will continue to provide instruction to our students in accordance with our approved COVID-19 Response/Re-Opening Plan.
Face-to-Face instruction will continue across the program except in the Porter Head Start Classroom which will transition to remote learning until the approved return to in person date of Thursday, October 22nd.
Questions can be directed to the Health Department at: 517-264-5226 Option 5.
Be safe and Go Maples!

Dear APS Community,
Today we received notification that two students from one of our APS families tested positive for COVID. We have been and will continue to work closely with the parent, APS staff, and parents of students within the classroom. In consultation with the Lenawee County Health Department we will continue to provide instruction to our students in accordance with our approved Return to Learn Plan. Face-to-Face instruction will continue across the district except in the classroom at Prairie listed below or where students were within 6ft of a COVID positive student for more than 15 minutes at Springbrook.
Students from Mrs. Holtz’s Classroom at Prairie Elementary and 4 students from Springbrook Middle School will proceed with their classes in a remote setting for 14 days and will be able to return, if symptom free, on Monday, October 19th, 2020. Building principals have been and will continue to contact parents in these classrooms via phone so please make sure to answer your phone.
Having low class sizes, requiring masks, and having enough space to have social distancing protocols are benefiting all of us as we work though each school day.
It is also important that your email remain up to date so we can communicate information to parents in impacted classrooms and provide written notification from the Health Department in this case and in future cases. You can always update your email by calling your child’s building.
Again, only the one specific classroom mentioned above are going remote and 4 students from Springbrook, all other classrooms across the district will continue Face-to-Face. I strongly encourage you to talk with your child on a daily basis about the known symptoms associated with COVID, and keep your child home if they are experiencing symptoms to prevent another classroom having to go to remote learning or having a transmission to other students and/or staff. Most importantly, if you, your child, or another household member gets a COVID test, please do not send your children to school until the results are clear.
Reminder that COVID Guidance and APS documents for parents are all located at: https://www.adrianmaples.org/back-to-school/
Questions can be directed to the Health Department at: 517-264-5226 Option 5. APS is lucky to have had only 3 known cases to date thanks to the preventative measures put in place and practiced by our students and staff
Be safe and Go Maples!!!
