Updates and Upcoming Events

Hello PLES!

We hope everyone is staying dry and safe today!

A message from the AGSD Technology Department: If you or a family member is using the Powerschool App (NOT the AGSD App), you may have recently experienced some issues with an error stating that data was not syncing. This is due to a version mismatch and will occur if the app is at version 22.5 or older. To rectify the issue, simply click on the three lines in the bottom right hand corner of your App screen, go to "Account", and sign out completely. Once you use your usual credentials to sign back in, it should update your app to the newest version and the error should no longer appear. If you have any further issues, please enter a web help desk ticket using your child's credentials.

Safety & Security Reminders

The safety and security of our school community remain a priority in AGSD. Our District has safety and security protocols in place and we would like to share a few key points.

· AGSD maintains a collaborative partnership with the local and state police departments.

· Police are required to perform daily safety checks of schools for our buildings.

· If through collaboration with the local and/or state police an incident is deemed a potential threat to the safety of our school community, administration will notify families in a prompt manner.

· Administration can only discuss discipline-related issues with the student’s parents/caregivers.

· Questions or concerns should be directed to the school administration.

Winter break is from Monday, December 26 through Friday, December 30. There will be no weekly update on 12/30. The next weekly update will be 1/6/23.

School resumes on Monday, January 2, 2023.

Enjoy winter break and Happy Holidays!

On Monday, January 2nd, we will be holding assemblies for each grade level to review our schoolwide matrix for how we take care of ourselves, each other, and our school. We will also be introducing a new feature to our PBIS and bucket filling program! Be sure to ask your student about it!
