New VDH Guidelines

The VDH has updated their guidance for those who have been exposed to Covid-19.  Beginning Monday November 23, 2020 ACPS will begin following this guidance.  To summarize, if a student or employee is experiencing covid symptoms and they do not see a medical professional, they will be required to quarantine for 10 days before they can return to school.  Take a look at the guidance and let me know if you have any questions.

Health Clinic

All students are invited to attend one of our health clinics! ACPS will be providing free hearing screenings and Amherst County Lion's Club will be providing free vision screenings to any student. School Nurses will be available for consultation about any health questions you may have. Also, Central Virginia Health District will be providing flu shots to students and parents who want one. If you are interested in getting a flu shot, please bring identification and insurance information. We hope to see you at one of these events:

Interims and Parent/ Teacher Conferences

Interims will be sent home on Wednesday, October 14th. Please review your child's progress and request a meeting with your child's teacher if necessary. Meetings can take place between October 19-23. We are requesting that meetings be held via Google Meet or over the phone. If face to face meetings need to take place, please wear your face covering and be screened in the office. 

Sweet Briar Homework Assistance

Sweet Briar College has worked to provide additional assistance to students and families when completing school work remotely utilizing their pre-service teachers through daily google meets that are supervised by professors at Sweet Briar College.  Please note that this is not traditional tutoring of content, but rather a guidance through a problem solving process.  The flyer, which includes the google meet link and QR code is attached.  Also attached, is a sample of the questions SBC students will utilize to help students navigate homework and/or technical issues.

 

Last Day to Make Changes

ACPS  Students and Families,
This is just a reminder that the last day to make changes to your student's instructional model is on Wednesday, September 30th, 2020 by 6:00 p.m.  A written request to the student's base school principal must be completed and submitted to make any changes such as a student who is currently learning remotely and wishes to return for in-person instruction. All other changes to a student's instructional model will be considered at the end of the first semester on February 12th, 2020. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
