How Do Teens Get Alcohol?
What Is Social Hosting?
When of-age adults give or supply alcohol for teenagers, it’s called social hosting. Most often, the term is used to describe hosting large, alcohol-laden parties. Social hosting is also a crime throughout the United States, undermines the parent-child relationship, and harms the physical, mental, and developmental health of youth.
Statistics about Social Hosting
- 72 percent of teens who drink alcohol don’t pay for it.
- For teens who got alcohol in the past six months, parents were the supplier three times.
- Two out of three teens say it’s easy to get alcohol from their homes without parents knowing it.
- Two out of five teens say it’s easy to get alcohol from a friend’s parents.
- One in four teens has been to a party where teens drink in front of parents.
- One in four teens, including one in three girls, say their own parents have given them alcohol.

Riding on Another Student's Bus - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
In the past, parents have been able to send a request to their school asking for their child to ride a bus home with another student for childcare purposes.
Due to COVID-19 and our efforts to manage bus ridership, assigned seating, and support case investigations, buses can only serve the students that are assigned to the bus.
AMMS Sports Information
7th and 8th graders ONLY, who have not failed more than one class the previous semester, including connections, may participate in the Tumbling Exhibition. Students interested must join the Tumbling Team Microsoft Teams by using the link: AMMS Tumbling Team
ALL paperwork must be completed correctly and submitted to Coach Larson digitally via Microsoft Teams ONLY by 4:05 p.m. on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16th.
