As the school year is quickly coming to an end this will be the last time you will be notified that Transportation forms are due! Transportation will not be provided if forms have not been completed and returned to the main office. The school districts that provide transportation to AACMS have deadlines that we have to adhere to…Therefore this is the FINAL NOTICE!
Please fill out transportation forms available here  https://www.arts-cs.org/bus and return to Main Office promptly to ensure that your child has transportation for the 2022-2023 school year. Transportation forms are required for each student…If you are not requesting transportation or are planning on picking up your student on a daily basis please fill out form and state NOT REQUESTING TRANSPORTATION or PARENT PICK-UP across the top of the transportation form.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Melinda Clemente
 

There is a change in status of our Indoor Face Covering Decision Matrix because of the consistent rise in the level of positive COVID-19 cases in both Lehigh and Northampton counties. Both counties are in a HIGH level of community transmission rate.  Also we have had about 5 positive cases within the school building between faculty and staff members within the last 14 days weeks.  For these reasons, we are going to move back up to Tier 2 of our masking matrix which states that masks are recommended indoors for staff and students regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be required in both the health room and guidance offices.  Visitors will be required to wear a mask in the school building regardless of vaccination status.
Thank you for your cooperation and continued support of our efforts to keep our students and faculty healthy!

AACMS holds the right to mandate universal masking which may be considered at any time for all students and staff, regardless of vaccination status, based on CDC guidance and the level of community and/or building transmission of COVID-19.
