Extended Closure and Graduation
Based on Governor Kemp's decision to shut down all public schools through the remainder of the school year, we will also remain closed for the remainder of this school year. All practices, competitions, and other activities at School (both inside and outside) are cancelled through the end of the 2019-20 school year.
Even though we will not return to campus for instruction this school year, our goal is to have a K5 graduation and a High School graduation. We are still working out the details for a K5 graduation, and once we know more, we will update our K5 parents on our plans for this event.
Please note this important information concerning our High School graduation. Given Governor Kemp's order, we will not hold our High School graduation on May 16. Nevertheless, we are proposing two alternative dates for our High School graduation, June 13 or July 11. If we can safely gather on June 13, we will hold graduation on that date. If we need to wait until July, we will do so. Of course, we will continue to update you on our plans for graduation as we follow federal, state, and local guidelines for large public gatherings. For those planning to participate in our high school graduation, please try to keep both of these dates available.
Summer Camp Information
Drama Camp has been rescheduled to June 15-26. Youth Cheer Camp and Youth Football Camp have been cancelled at this time. These two camps may be rescheduled for a later date, and if so, we will get that information to you.
All other Summer Camps at ACS, including Camp Eagle, are scheduled to move forward as planned. Of course, we will give you more information on any changes as soon as we have it. You can register for our Summer Camps on the ACS website.
We understand that the School will need to offer refunds or credits for a variety of activities including school trips, school lunch, bus service, homework helper, art, ballet, and extended care. We are currently working on the best process to handle these refunds. For those who are due refunds, we will continue to communicate with you. Thank you for your patience as this process has presented a new challenge for our Business Office. In the end, we want to make sure all refunds are done properly and in order.
Be sure you are signed up for our weekly newsletter, the Eagle Weekly, and each area of the School that communicates with you. Our Kindergarten and Lower School send out newsletters every Tuesday.
Also, be sure to follow our Facebook and Instagram pages as we will begin to share pictures of online learning, allow students to submit images for posting, and provide fun challenges.
