Early Check-Outs

Reminder that if students are checking out early for any reason, a note must be brought to the front office in the morning. We will stamp the note and this is the pass allowing them to be in the front office when parents arrive. Your cooperation is appreciated with this process, so we are not interrupting instructional time.

No student check outs after 3:30 p.m. with a note.

Final Exams

The last exams of the semester for all classes will be administered on December 15-18, 2020. You can visit the AMMS web page for the exam schedule at

Please note that we will be following a different schedule during exam week so teachers will adjust their TEAMS class times on these days.

Please be aware of the following information regarding this last exam:

  • No student will be allowed to take the exam before December 15 if he/she is leaving early for a vacation.

AMMS PTA Staff Appreciation

Dear Parents,

We need your help! It is the time of year when we give thanks. The teachers and staff at AMMS do an amazing job! Let us thank them for all their hard work. We would like to give the teachers and staff a thank you of at least two $10 gift cards. Some popular gift cards they have enjoyed in the past include: Target, Starbucks, Amazon, Macy's, Publix/Kroger, Chick Fil A and other restaurants...GET CREATIVE! Please consider donating one or more $10 gift cards to show the AMMS staff how much we appreciate them! You may send the gift cards in with your student or drop them off at the front office.

Thank you,


Melanie Brandt, Co-President

Change to School Calendar

The School Board approved changing January 5, 2021, from a regular school day to a teacher workday/student holiday. Since January 5 is a run-off election date and more than 60 schools are polling sites, the decision was made to convert the day to a student holiday. January 6, 2021, now becomes the first day of second semester for students.


FCS is asking parents/guardians of FCS students to submit a COVID-19 Report ONLY if your child meets any of the criteria below.

  • Has tested Positive for COVID-19
  • Waiting for the results of a test for COVID-19
  • Has been in close contact (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes) in the last 14 days with someone diagnosed with COVID-19

Directions: Reporting Portal Link

Please DO NOT send your student to school or school sponsored events when he/she is ill and has any of the above COVID-19 concerns until you have spoken with your healthcare provider, one of the FCS Student Health Services School Nurses, or a public health official.

Yearbook Information

As you know, this year is different than any other school year we’ve experienced. So, our yearbook will be a bit different too! The yearbook staff would love for YOU to submit photos to be featured in this year’s book! There are two ways you can do this: it’s super easy-this can be done by both in person and virtual learners (option 1 or 2), and families/parents (option 2 only). Parents, please encourage your student to use option one as it will help with general yearbook content.

  1. ***FOR STUDENTS-will require Microsoft Login*** Click here to see a list of specific categories in which we need pictures-if you have any of these, fill out the correct form and upload your photos.
  2. *For anyone to use-no login required* Click here to submit any photos, including photos that do not fit into one of the above forms-we need those too! (if user ID needed use this: 415464602)
