The books are $20 each while supplies last. Pre-ordered yearbooks may be picked up at the building office of your child’s 2022-23 school.
Aurora Police Department personnel requested that both Robinson School and the High School do a lockdown this morning due to their work in apprehending a suspect in a neighborhood close to the schools. Contrary to reports, there was not an incident inside either facility. The APD just wanted to make sure that all students and school personnel were safe inside the buildings. Thanks to the APD for always thinking about the safety of students and staff at Aurora R-VIII.
Aurora R-VIII students and staff will not be in session tomorrow, Thursday, February 2, 2023. While the sun helped with the well-traveled roads, the country portions are still hard packed/extremely slick and those that have melted a little will refreeze into significant ruts for tomorrow. This will slow down routes and could cause issues resulting in accidents during the morning hours. Tomorrow will NOT be an AMI Day. Please save your AMI Day 5 packet for a later date. The first scheduled snow make-up day on the Board-approved calendar is Friday, February 10, 2023. Students and staff will be making up this day on the 10th.
Due to the continued ice pack on country/secondary roads and the additional weather received this afternoon, there will be no school for Aurora students and staff tomorrow, Wednesday, February 1, 2023. This will be AMI Day 4. Thank you.
No school tomorrow, Tuesday, January 31, 2023 for Aurora students and staff due to the inclement weather. It will be AMI Day 3. Thank you.
