  7. Remote Learning at AMS

AMS Families:

As you are aware the school district is switching temporarily to Remote Learning through the Thanksgiving Break. Below is important information about our Remote Learning Program.

If you have any difficulty opening the links below, please ask your child to open them on their school Chromebook.



Remote learning will look significantly different than the experience students had in the Spring.

Remote learning is structured with scheduled class sessions by period.

Attendance will be taken and grading will follow our traditional numeric grading process.

Students will be expected to participate in learning daily from 9am until 2:30pm, beginning in Morning Meeting with Google Meet each day.



Please watch our four minute Remote Learning Program overview with your child before tomorrow’s Morning Meeting.
