Students still needing MacBooks
Any current student needing to request a MacBook will need to see the Librarian - Mrs. Leslie Batts. (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once a student has visited Mrs. Batts, the parent/guardian will need to come to school to pay the MacBook fee and sign the Parent/Student Device Agreement.
MacBook User Fees are as follows:
Paid Lunch = $50
Sibling in ACS in grades 7-12 = $40
Free/Reduced lunch - $25
Free/Reduced lunch with siblings = no more than $50 per family
You can pay the user fee online also at this link: Pay Fees. Bring your receipt with you to show the librarian when you come to sign the device agreement.
From the Nurse
Remember!! ALL medication (Prescription and Over the Counter) must be brought in by the parent/guardian and signed in by the school nurse. Medication forms must be renewed at the beginning of each year. No medication from the previous year is kept over the summer. If you have any questions, please contact Nurse Kelley.
