AMI Information and Expectations (2/9/2021)
This message is to remind students and families of the AMI expectations for assignments. Your student received paper packet lessons or online Canvas lessons earlier this year depending on what you chose during registration for AMI learning days. These assignments are due 3 days after we return to school. Since we are already scheduled to be off Monday, February 15th for President's Day, the expectation is that all assignments from yesterday and today will be due Tuesday February 16th. Students who do not turn their assignments in on time will be counted absent for the AMI days.
Not all teachers have access to email from home, if you have a question or concern and are unable to reach your teacher, feel free to contact your building principal.
Just a quick reminder that we do not have in person classes on Wednesdays. Wednesday, February 10 will NOT be AMI Day 3.
The parent letter sent with the AMI packets is linked below. You can also access this information on the bisonpride.org website. AMI INFORMATION

2020-2021 Calendar Changes
Due to the ability to use Alternative Methods of Instruction on inclement weather days and COVID-19 concerns, the board unanimously approved changes to the 2020-2021 calendar. This calendar takes the eight Mondays which were designated as inclement weather make-up days and changed them into school days. The first six inclement weather days will be Alternative Methods of Instruction days (AMI) and do not need to be made up. Winter Break (Christmas Break) is extended until January 8th (workday for staff) and January 11th (attendance day for students). This extended break allows two weeks for isolation following Christmas to lessen the possible spread of COVID -19 from holiday gatherings. Easter break added the Monday after Easter is a non-attendance day for students. Three inclement weather days were placed before Spring Break. If those days are not used Spring Break could begin three days earlier. Any additional days needed for inclement weather make-up will be added at the end of the school year. The calendar is attached. We plan to remain on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday with in person instruction with Wednesdays being AMI-X/Virtual for the beginning of second semester.
