Do you have changes to your child's transportation?
Please do NOT call the teacher, leave a voicemail for a teacher or send an email/ parent square message for the teacher, as there is NO GUARANTEE that they will get the message before dismissal. They teach all day and are unable to check messages during the day.
Call the front office at 317 544 5900 with any changes to how you want your child to get home!
Important updates from Food Services:
Free Breakfast/Lunch Program
The US Government program that enabled us to provide free school breakfasts and lunches during the last two school years has expired. Avon Schools will return to our former model for the upcoming school year. We wanted you to have ample notice so you can plan accordingly.
School Meal Prices
Our Food Service team does a tremendous job providing nutritious and affordable breakfasts and lunches for students. Meal prices for the 2022-23 school year are as follows:
- Grades K-12 Breakfast, $1.85
- Grades K-4 Lunch, $2.85
- Grades 5-12 Lunch, $2.95
- AHS Premium Meal, $3.95
- Vended Meal $3.60
Free/Reduced Meal Benefit Applications
We are accepting applications for free/reduced meals. Directly certified families have already received a separate message from the Food Service team; they will not need to apply.

Cell Phones, Apple/Smart Watches and Wireless Earbuds:
** If there is an emergency and a student needs to reach you, they will be permitted to use the school phone.
** if you need to leave a message for your child, please call the front office and they will make sure your child is given the message by the end of the day.
In the event they are to have their cell phone out of their locker, the following steps will be taken by the teacher:
- First time- warning: the teacher will ask them to go put it in their locker and share that next time it will be confiscated.
- Second time- The teacher will ask the student to give them the phone and the teacher holds the phone until end of the day. The teacher returns the phone at the end of the day when the student gets on the bus/ goes to their car in car rider line and reminds the student of the school wide expectations. This will be documented as a disciplinary referral and parents will be notified.
- Third time and beyond: The teacher will ask the student to give them the phone and the teacher will take the phone to the front office for a parent/guardian to pick up the phone. The teacher will communicate with the parent to inform the parent that the phone has been out three or more times and now they must pick it up the phone from the front office. This will be documented as a disciplinary referral.
*** If students choose to bring their phones or other devices to school, Avon Schools are not responsible for lost or stolen devices or personal belongings.***
