Superintendent's Update for Next Year

Superintendent Update - 2021-2021 School Year Recommendations

At the May 13th, Regular School Board Meeting, Dr. Arnold presented to the Board recommendations for the 2021-2022 School Year. We are asking for your feedback to help best meet the needs of our students. Below you will find a link for both a recording of the recommendations and the link to complete the Feedback Form.

Remote Option for 2021-2022

A key decision will need to be made by all Amherst County Public Schools families for the 2021-2022 school year. ACPS will have two options for students: 5 days/week of in-person learning OR 5 days/week of virtual learning. We strongly encourage everyone to come back in person but understand that some families may prefer or need to remain virtual for health reasons. If you want your student/s to come back in person, you don’t need to do anything. In-person is the default option.

Chromebook Inventory and Updates

Temperance Tiger Families:
Please ensure that your student is bringing their Chromebook, charger, and flash drive tomorrow, Thursday, 5/6/21.  We will be conducting an update to all Chromebooks and it is imperative that they have it with them.  Please also bring in any donations for the classroom gift baskets that you may have as they are due tomorrow as well.

5th Grade Relocation

Due to the new CDC guidelines allowing student social distancing to be reduced from 6 feet to 3 feet, we are relocating our 5th-grade class back to their classroom from the Library beginning Monday, March 29th.  Students will still be required to wear masks.  Because CDC guidelines state that students who are not wearing masks and eating should be at 6 feet of social distancing, we will be requiring our 5th-grade class to eat breakfast and lunch in the cafeteria at the appropriate distance.  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
