A Valentine's Day Reminder
Dear Parents or Guardians,
As we approach Valentine’s Day, it is important to ensure that all homemade candy, desserts, baked goods, or other edible items are not to be sold or distributed during school hours, and that appropriate store-bought items are delivered to the administration. Please know that taking this measure will help us maintain a safe environment for all students with allergies, etc. You can help us protect your student(s) by requesting that they not eat anything given to them by another person, anything that they have not brought from your home or anything not in its original sealed package.
Thank you for your continued partnership in keeping all of our students safe at school!
Special PTA hosted Zoom Event
AMMS Blue Out
We are excited to start having the annual Blue Out again. Students get to play basketball against Autrey Mill staff, teachers and admin.
Blue Out raffle tickets can be purchased on the PBIS app using PBIS points. Every point buys one ticket. You can purchase as many raffle tickets as you have points, this increases your chance of being on the student team, but does not guarantee a spot.
The student team will compose of 10 raffle winners. Those students will play against the teachers in an exciting, action-packed game on February 22nd right after school.
Where: AMMS Gym
When: Wednesday, February 22nd immediately after school

Parent's Responsibility When a Child is Absent
- Parents should notify the school before or after the absence(s)
- Notes should be directed to attendance owner at the school
- Handwritten note or email
- Notification from parents should happen no later than 5 days after absence
Middle and High School
- Middle/High School messages begin going out around 4:30 p.m. on the day of the absence.
- If your student is absent or misses one or more periods of the school day, they will be marked with an "A" (for absent) in our attendance system, and you will receive an automated phone call and email message to the designated contact info you provided in Infinite Campus. This includes excused absences that are approved in advance.
- Errors can occur and if you feel you received a phone call by mistake, contact your school front office to verify that your student’s attendance record is accurate.
- If your student's absence was unexpected, please remember to contact your child's school by sending in a note or email so the absence can be marked "excused" in the system.
FCS COVID 19 Reporting Procedures
