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.

Aurora Parents, It was a terrible incident that took place yesterday in Uvalde, Texas. Even though we are at the end of the regular school year, we asked all staff members to be vigilant in taking safety precautions every minute of every day. Specifically, we have asked each member to review safety processes that have been provided through training scenarios and to make sure each individual has a plan in place to ensure the safety of all students in their care. All front office staff has been directed to thoroughly screen visitors to the buildings and to call our school resource officers or local police department if something doesn’t seem right. While it is impossible to ensure 100% safety, the more prepared we can be, the better off we will be. As a District, we encourage parents and community members to be aware of their surroundings and to speak up if something “just doesn’t look right.” It is a shame we have to go over these precautions; however, the times we live in demand we all are more aware. Please know we appreciate the partnership with our community and take very seriously our job to protect the students and staff of the District. Feel free to reach out to Central Office if you have any questions or concerns. Educationally, David Mais
