Dear Bullpup Families September 2020

Dear AEP families, 

Thank you for your support as we have successfully reopened AEP for the 2020-2021 school year!  What an interesting start it’s been!  Despite all of the challenges, changes, and new protocols, learning is taking place and smiles are all over campus.  It is great to have our students back!  The students also seem happier than ever to be here.  Yesterday, Governor Edwards announced that our state is now moving to Phase 3.  At this time, AEP will continue to operate under the same protocols as we have in Phase 2.  I believe that the safety protocols are helping to protect our students and staff.  As we continue through the 1st nine-weeks of school, we will methodically and gradually move to Phase 3.  In Phase 3, students may gather in larger groups (no more than 50), buses can hold more passengers, and classes, such as music, can resume certain activities.  

I cannot conclude without recognizing the significance of today… Patriot Day.  I watched the 5th graders raised the flag to half-mast, as members of the Ruston Fire Department looked on as well.  We look forward to sharing photos from our adapted Patriot Day recognition.  Thank you to all parents who serve our community.  This Bullpup family is a blessing.  

With gratitude,
