  • Remote Student Remote Learning Survey - Deadline is February 26 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 March 15, 2021, which is 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 both returning students and students who will remain remote for the 4th nine-weeks, ACS needs to know which learning option your family will choose.

    The deadline to complete the Remote Learning Survey is Friday, February 26.
