Return to In-Person Learning Survey

We need every parent/guardian to complete a new survey to indicate your choice for your child to participate in either Option 1: Hybrid Learning or continue with Option 2: Remote Learning. Parents are also asked to indicate if their child will need general education bus transportation, which is limited to Ardmore, Fullerton, Indian Trail, Lake Park, and Stone. Every parent is asked to complete the Parent Commitment Form in Skyward for each child no later than October 7, 2020. Instructions for filling out the Parent Commitment Form can be found here.

Putting Library Books on Hold

The Army Trail Library is excited to allow students to place library books on hold using their Chromebooks! Please review the links below to learn about this process. Students may check out two library books at a time and read them for up to two weeks. Once a student places a book on hold and is ready for pick-up, parents will be contacted through Remind. Books will be picked up and dropped off at Door 1 in the vestibule during student attendance days from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. In the vestibule, there will a library cart where the books/holds will be… look for the ones with your student’s name on them! Additionally, there will be a bin by the library cart where books should be returned. Students must return previous library books when picking up their new holds.
