Yorktown at Home

Yorktown @ Home

These resources are designed to assist families during the COVID-19 school closure event, to help keep you informed and support the skill, practice, continuation of learning at home. These resources are not a replacement for the high level of instruction that students receive from their professional teachers in their classrooms. APS does not endorse these activities as instruction that replaces what would be happening in the classroom. These resources are meant to reinforce learning that has already occurred.

Virtual Office Hours

Yorktown High School Virtual Office Hours, https://yhs.apsva.us/post/virtual-office-hours

APS has asked all schools to post teachers’ “office hours,” during which they will be able to take telephone calls and respond to family emails.

Yorktown Office hours will be organized by the schedule below so that there are no conflicts between students’ classes. This schedule is based on the requirement that teachers hold at least one office hour weekly with each department having two possible time slots. While teachers may offer synchronous class meetings during their regularly scheduled 8-period class schedule, office hours will take precedence over any synchronous class meetings. See below for the schedule.
