It’s Spring Break Mustangs!

It was our first week back as one cohort and I will say the for the most part, it was successful! As some of you have read or experienced, AMS had a few cases of COVID and multiple quarantines due to close contact protocols.

As we go into Spring Break, I ask parents to get your kids outside and let them run, play, and enjoy some spring sun and air (weather permitting). I recognize that some families have travel plans and ask if this is the case to closely monitor for symptoms of COVID upon your return home. Sending a student to school with symptoms, or possible exposure can and has resulted in a longer time in quarantine than keeping them home that one extra day to ensure it was nothing. Please remember that if your child has a possible exposure and it turns into a real one, sending them to school now affects everyone they were near that day in school.

I ask for your help and partnership to keep all our students safe and “In School” without unnecessary quarantines. Please help keep our kids that choose to be “in seat”, in their seat.

Have a wonderful break and hopefully the weather will allow us to be outside a lot!


Jason Ohrt

Proud Principal of Avondale Middle School

Below is an excerpt from Dr. Schwarz’s letter recently sent out.

If your child is experiencing symptoms:

· Complete the Clear To Go screening

o A failed screening requires that your child remain home for a minimum of 10 days, unless you provide a doctor’s note with an alternative diagnosis to return.

· Have your child tested for COVID-19 and provide the positive or negative test result to your school.
Alternatively, visit your medical provider for a diagnosis that is not related to COVID-19. Provide a doctor’s note to your school before returning.

If your child is waiting for their own test results:

· Isolate your child at home until the test result is returned.

o Those in isolation must remain in separate rooms and avoid sharing personal items.

o Please do not allow your child to attend school or an athletic or club activity while a test result is pending.

· Complete the Clear To Go screening and notify your school.

If your child has received a positive COVID-19 test:

· Complete the Clear To Go screening and notify your school.

· Isolate your child for a minimum of 10 days from the start of symptoms or the positive test collection date, whichever occurred first.

o If no symptoms remain after 10 days, they may return to school without a negative COVID-19 test.

Twenty students in both Cohorts will get COMPLIMENTARY MEMBERSHIP!

Both Cohorts can go Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Wednesday's AMS is asynchronous, so there are no students in the building for deep cleaning.
