Snow Days (AMI) 2020-2021

Snow Days (AMI) 2020-2021

Our student attendance calendar was modified for the 2020-2021 school year allowing for a later start date and still ending the school year by Memorial Day. With a reduction in the number of student attendance days in the calendar this year, we will implement an Alternative Method of Instruction plan (AMI) to avoid continuing school into June to make up for missed days due to inclement weather or other qualifying school closures. Under provisions of the AMI plan, all students and teachers will have a virtual instruction day without physically coming to school. Each student will be assigned classwork that must be turned in for the day to be counted as an attendance day. This could be done virtually or by turning in a paper assignment when school resumes.

Our elementary schools are prepared to issue Chromebook devices to all elementary students when inclement weather is in the immediate forecast, in anticipation of a possible virtual school day. Middle school and high school students already have district-issued devices.

We are permitted one day missed for inclement weather that does not need to be made up. The superintendent declares inclement weather days as needed, and will also determine whether or not the day will be a virtual instruction day under the AMI plan when a snow day is declared.

We want our families and teachers to be prepared for our first declared snow day to be a virtual school day.

Makeup days are built into this year’s calendar on February 15, April 2, and June 1-4. Using the AMI plan should help minimize the need to rely on these makeup days.

The declaration of a school cancelation or virtual school day due to inclement weather will be communicated through email, text, phone call, social media, and regional news stations.
