Summer School Enrollment Information

As you know, we have made the difficult decision to move all of our K-12 summer school programming entirely online for this year. This virtual program will not only allow us to meet the academic needs of our students, but will also help protect the health and safety of both our students and staff. Click here for enrollment information for Grades K-8 and Grades 9-12.

Drive-Through Senior Check-Out

This week we'll be welcoming the Class of 2020 back on campus for our Drive-Through Senior Check-Out at Affton High School on:

  • Monday, May 18: 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM
  • Tuesday, May 19: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The Drive-Through process will eliminate the need for Seniors or their parents to exit their vehicle or enter the building. More specific information has been shared by Affton High School, but please remember to review the map below for

Please review the attached Affton High School Campus Map. It details the six (6) stations we will operate and what each station will collect and/or distribute. It also details how you will be required to enter and exit Affton High School’s campus for this event.

To expedite the process, we ask that you do the following before arriving on campus:

  1. Using a sheet of paper (no smaller than an 8 ½ by 11 in.) print the name(s) of your Senior(s) who are in the vehicle.
  2. Place the sign on the dash on the driver's side to allow the name(s) to be read by station helpers
  3. Have the items we are collecting organized by station and ready for someone to take through your car window or in your trunk.
