Middle School Health Curriculum

*The communication, below, was sent in a separate email on Wednesday, August 30 *

We have changed the format in which our Health Curriculum will be delivered. The curriculum will be delivered, by PE/Health teachers, in SRT class throughout the school year. This will begin on September 12 and will continue until the end of the year. The teachers will teach approximately 4 lessons/units for 30 minutes during SRT. Attached below is a health letter that contains more information. Additionally, a health waiver form is attached. The waiver is only required for those who choose to OPT OUT of the district mandated health class. Students will receive a copy of the letter and waiver 2 weeks prior to taking health class. If you choose the OPT OUT option, please return the waiver before health class begins. You may print the form attached to this email and return it to the main office at any time or complete/return the form when your student receives it 2 weeks prior to class. There are also additional copies in the main office. We will be posting updates in the AGS NEWS, including a schedule of when the class will be taught in your child's SRT.

Please contact the main office (810 591 7700) with any questions. Thank you!

AGS Pick Up/Drop Information


We realize that school drop off and pick up loop procedures are not the most convenient. However, please understand that the safety of AGS students will always be our first priority. The current procedure is considered to be the safest approach as endorsed by the Fenton Police Department and County Traffic Engineers. We appreciate your cooperation and patience during the morning and afternoon drop off/pick times.

Things to remember:

  • The loop off of Shiawassee is for PARENT drop off / pick up
  • Students may be dropped off across Donaldson Drive
  • There is a crossing guard at Donaldson Drive during drop off and pick up
  • There are over 2000 students arriving and departing in the same vicinity (AGS/FHS)
  • The Donaldson (front) Loop and Entrance is for Bus Traffic Only
  • After 7:30 AM, please drop students off at the front entrance (off of Donaldson Drive)

Thank you again for keeping our AGS Students safe! It could be worse ... check out the school below! Crazy Loop!!
