Remote Student Survey
Remote students have the opportunity to return to traditional learning at the beginning of each new nine-week grading period during this school year (2020-2021).
The next chance for remote students to return to traditional (in-person) learning will be on Monday, March 15, 2021, the first day of the 4th nine-week grading period. To be clear, current remote students may choose to return to school on March 15, or they may choose to continue with remote learning.
To plan and prepare for the best experience possible for returning students and students who will remain remote for the 4th nine-weeks, ACS needs to know which learning option your family will choose.
Remote families must complete this Remote Learning Survey no later than Friday, February 26.

A Few Reminders
-Hot Breakfast and Lunch are available to all of our students for free for the remainder of the school year straight from our school cafeteria.
-Please have your students at school by 7:45. Our teachers begin instruction at 7:45, and we want to ensure your students are not missing out on any important instructional activities.
-Car riders should exit out of their car on the passenger side only. This is for the safety of all of our students.
-Please do not attempt to pass a car in the carline as we have students departing their vehicle. Carline is one lane only at all times.
Thank you for your continued support of our students and teachers. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any concerns or suggestions at anytime!
