Hello AMS families! Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!!
Schedules will be released in Infinite Campus on July 8! Please login to your portal to make sure your schedule looks correct. If you have a concern regarding your schedule, please email Mrs. DeCaro at DeCaro.Charina@CUSD80.com
Green and Gold
AMS Students are assigned a color - either green or gold - to help with our 4th hour fine arts/PE rotation. Mrs. DeCaro will be sending more information and the green and gold calendars via email soon.
PE Clothing can be purchased at in-person Bear Down Day, or through your parent portal today! If you purchase PE clothing through your parent portal, your student will need to visit the bookstore in the first week of school to pick up their items.
Bell Schedule, School Calendar
Please see the bell schedule and school calendar pages of the Bear Down Days website.
*The bell schedule includes a 7th hour for AMS students.
*AMS students follow the high school yearly calendar for CUSD. That means that AMS will not have early release days for parent teacher conferences when indicated for Jr High students and AMS students WILL have early release days on finals days in December and May. These changes will be noted in our newsletters as those dates approach.
As a general rule, AMS students take "A" lunch. Since it is so early in the day, please also pack a snack for later. Students will be given a little snack break at the end of 5th hour. Lunch accounts use www.myschoolbucks.com or the app! You may also put money in your student’s lunch account at in-person Bear Down Days or send your student to school with cash or check to be deposited into their lunch account.
Please see information about dress code on the AMS webpage. AMS Dress Code
We will have a general school supply list available at our live Bear Down Day on 7/16. However, this will be a general list, not specific to your student's needs. We would recommend bringing just the basics to start, and waiting to purchase school supplies until after school begins, so teachers can communicate specific needs for each class.
*If you will be dropping off and picking up your student:
Please see the map on the AMS webpage for more details.
Morning drop off - Please enter at the light off Val Vista (Basha Bear Drive). Follow the cones. Students will go to the cafeteria to wait for the bell. You will exit the parking lot at the same light you came in at. This drop off loop is for AMS only.
Afternoon pick up - Please use the loop off of Riggs road for afternoon pick up.
AMS buses use depots. They pick up and drop off at a select number of schools around the district.
If you are interested in using the AMS Bus, please email TRIPS@CUSD80.COM . Please provide the following information:
