We Need Your Help

With increased number of students attending AES on a daily basis, our list of students who have not completed the AUXS app is getting longer. We have limited staff available to screen and call families and limited space to house our students who are not cleared. We appreciate your help in filling out the app each morning so your children can go directly to class. Some families have found success by setting an alarm on your phone as a reminder to complete the app.
