We are in the process of revamping this article for 2021-2022 with an emphasis on the return to full in-person learning
Even with Back to School 2020-2021 looking different, Ann Arbor Public Schools has several Back to School Events. There is tech distribution, Schoology Orientation, and school Meet & Greets. In addition, schools are scheduling virtual Curriculum and Capsule Nights.
We are in the process of updating this for the 2020-2021 school year.
Before School Events
These are the events that happen before the first day of school – August 30 in 2021-2022. Events include Registration, Orientations, Building Tours, Social Events
High School Events
Typically each school offers registration and orientation the weeks before school starts. I was able to find dates for Skyline, but not the other schools. The district typically releases a Back to School Guide in August with all of these dates.
Community High School

Middle School Events
Middle Schools typically have registration events like the high schools. We will update as we see events.
Elementary School Events
Many elementary schools organize informal playdates for incoming Y5/K families. These often happen on the school playground. Additionally some schools offer meet and greets either for the whole school or just Y5/K students. I hope to see some of these events return for 2021-2022. Many of these events are organized by the school’s PTO.
After School Starts
Some events are held after school starts. There are typically some social events, and some curriculum/capsule nights where you can meet your child’s teachers. I am hoping that the district will offer a virtual option for the 2021-2022 school year. Dates for these are typically included in the district’s Back to School guide in mid-August.
