In a former APS SchoolTalk incorrect information was given out that school counselors would be available during the summer months. This is not accurate. School counselors, the same as the teaching staff, will be on summer break. Some of the APS social workers will be available to families, staff and students from June 22 through August 21. Social workers are available to assist with resources such as DHS, AFAC and Thrive. They are also there to assist with academic, social-emotional or other concerns you may have about your child. You can access help via the email: SchoolSocialWorkers@apsva.us or by calling or texting: 571-424-4353 or by calling the landline: 703-228-6061.
