From Coach Grandison:
As we navigate through this time of uncertainty, I will like to provide some additional support to you. Whether you have questions about your online classes, CCP enrollment status, and classes, scholarships, or maybe you just need to vent and get your thoughts out.
If you would like to schedule an appointment to address your concerns, please email Coach Grandison at email@example.com.

Please visit the APS website using the link below. There are instructions on how to request a work permit during online instruction and the forms are available there as well.
The instructions include the following:
“To complete a work permit during the online instruction period please follow this process.
The student emails the completed work permit form (all 3 sections - application and physician's certificate) along with a copy of their picture ID or birth certificate and their student ID# to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The district will then process the work permit, print the student's copy and email it back to the student. The student will be instructed to sign the permit prior to giving it to their employer. The work permits will be processed Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
