Community invite for input - final (Nov 2020).pdf

ACS Community,

Included here is an info letter that has a survey link to provide final input for strategic planning. The survey has the same 4 questions asked on Nov 16th at the community engagement night.

We know that the 16th was not the best evening for many to venture out for various reasons. Therefore, this survey is to give everyone the chance to provide input.

Please provide input if you wish, pass this on, and spread the word. We value all of the information that has been shared so far.

Thank you for your input!

To kick off a unit on Changes in Ecosystems, the fifth graders had a guest speaker via Zoom. Amanda Hefner from the Nature Conservancy’s Niobrara Valley Preserve described how the area along the Niobrara River was affected by the 2012 Fairfield Creek fire that burned over 66,000 acres. We learned that the grassland recovered quickly, but the Ponderosa pine trees were so badly damaged that they won’t come back on their own anytime soon. We thank Amanda for spending some time with us today!

Due to not having school next week and keeping students out of the building as much as possible, we will NOT run either our Girls or Boys Skills camp this Saturday (November 21st). Thank you for understanding. Please help spread the word!

[11/17/20]   Dear Parents, in order to help mitigate Covid and allow for deep cleaning of the school building, we are going to take Monday and Tuesday off as well for Thanksgiving. Therefore, students will not have school all of next week for Thanksgiving break and will resume school on Monday, November 30th. There will be activities as scheduled. For more information regarding activities, please visit with the ADs or respective coach/sponsor. Thank you.

[11/14/20]   Grades K-4 Parents: Reminder, we are moving to a mask requirement for grades K-4 as of Monday, November 16th. Please send your student to school with a mask. Masks will be available for any student who does not have one. However, you are welcome and encouraged to provide your own. In addition to masks, face coverings such as "neck gaiters" are fine as well. Thank you again for your help and support in this matter.

Padres de grados K-4: Recordatorio, vamos a pasar a un requisito de máscara para los grados K-4 a partir del lunes 16 de noviembre. Envíe a su estudiante a la escuela con una máscara. Habrá máscaras disponibles para cualquier estudiante que no las tenga. Sin embargo, le invitamos a que proporcione el suyo. Además de las máscaras, también están bien cubrirse la cara como "polainas para el cuello". Gracias nuevamente por su ayuda y apoyo en este asunto.

Spanish version K-4 Mask Mandate (11-16-20).pdf


We have seen a significant increase in covid related isolation and quarantine due to covid. To date we have 10 staff members and 31 students affected and that number is likely to increase.

Therefore, we will be moving to a K-4 mask mandate as of Monday, Nov 16th. Attached is a letter from Mr. Childers. Please read the letter that explains the situation and more information on this matter.

Thank you for your continued support. We want to get on top of this situation and it will slow down for us as soon as we have a few days under the mask mandate for all of K-12.

If anyone has any questions, please let us know.

Thank you,
Mr. Hafer
