Thank you.
It is that time of year again! It's time to review and update your
Parent Portal account information! Help us improve district-wide communications this school year by ensuring your contact information remains up to date at all times.

As the school year approaches, the district and your child's school will be sending multiple communications. It is very important that every legal guardian and parent remains contactable. Please provide the best means of communication ensuring all email addresses and phone numbers are completely free from error as this is how you will be contacted about important matters regarding your enrolled student and your student's school(s).

AMS Parents/Guardians: Mark your calendars for the first day of school! Please note: There is a new procedure for the start of the 2023-2024 school year. Studentsโ€™ first day depends on their grade level. Each grade level is assigned a specific start date. Basically, only ONE grade level will attend each day.
