Those applications will be sent in a separate email to students selecting those options.

    Distance Learning at Aqua

    Good Morning Aqua Parents,

    Beginning Monday March 23rd Bridgeport Public Schools, including Aqua, will begin implementing distance learning activities for the duration of this school closure. Teachers will be preparing work and posting it on their Edmodo pages for the coming week by Friday afternoon. I’m attaching here the list of Aqua teacher emails so that you & your child may stay in contact with their teacher. During distance learning weeks, teachers are required to check electronic communication (Edmodo & email) multiple times per day, so that they may be available to help students. Each class’ work will be determined by the teacher, but we have been encouraged to keep the workload reasonable (recommending 3-4 hours of work per week)

    If any student does not have access to Edmodo or email, for any reason, they may pick up a paper copy of work at the Aqua Main Office on Monday to be returned on Friday. For now, this measure will likely be in place through the first week of April. However, this is an unprecedented situation and district leadership will be revisiting these decisions on a regular basis.

     The absolute last day for Aqua will be June 25th.

     Thank you for your patience during this very confusing time. We will all be working remotely when possible as we practice social distancing. If you have questions or concerns email is the best way to reach me: Lcatherman@bridgeportedu.net

    We will continue to keep you posted as additional information becomes available.

      Lea Catherman
