AAPS Still Shoveling Sidewalks?

Question Corner: March 2021

by Tim Athan

From the March, 2021 issue

Q: Why are we all paying for somebody to shovel AAPS school sidewalks when nobody is using them? The U.S. flag flies every day for whom? I've only seen weekly potluck suppers using the 'building/heat once per week!

A: "The Ann Arbor Public Schools continues to shovel sidewalks as we still have facilities, maintenance, and custodian staff that are in the buildings on a regular basis, and know individuals may still be using our playgrounds and other outdoor locations," explains AAPS communication director Andrew Cluley. "We also have schools that are being used as locations for our food distribution program that has delivered approximately 850,000 meals to students. Temperatures in our buildings have been reduced to save energy, yet remain warm enough to not cause damage to the buildings themselves."
