Network Update: Connection Restored, Distance Learning to Resume Thu, Oct. 22


APS Staff and Families:

We wanted to provide an update on network services. Yesterday, APS experienced a complete loss of internet service as well as the connection to our secondary data center in Ashburn. The primary cause of the outage was damage to a fiber optic cable in Vienna.

Our service provider repaired the damaged cable overnight and restored service late this morning. As of 1 p.m., APS network services have been restored.

Distance learning will resume for all students, tomorrow, Oct. 22.

If you have any technology issues, please visit Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your continued patience.
