6:30 PM - 7:30 PM School Board Meeting
Remote Learning Survey - Deadline is December 4 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 Wednesday, January 6, 2021, which is the first day of the 3rd nine-week grading period. To be clear, current remote students may choose to return to school on January 6 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 3rd nine-weeks, ACS needs to know which learning option your family will choose.
