ACS is exploring a job share for one of our bus routes. If you are interested, or you know someone who may be interested, in driving part time, please email Brian Koetje at There is potential for about three days per week for driving, plus helping with field trips. Additionally, there will be future opportunities to drive every day, and be involved in driving for field trips.

It is so important that parents send healthy kids to school. If you have a child that is not feeling well, please keep them home. If these are typical symptoms for you child, and not worsening, and there is no reason to believe there has been a contact to a positive COVID case, students may return after following normal protocols, like 24-hours fever free. Please use the screener below before sending kids off to school each day.
-- At Home Daily Screener Please click this link for information on how to screen for these symptoms daily, including a temperature check at home. If your child is having symptoms on the screener that are not normal, or worsening, please contact your family doctor. It would be important to get medical attention at that point and let the doctor decide the best steps.
-- Who must stay home? - Click on this document to find which students should stay home (a list of symptoms) and how long students should stay home in different situations. Please read through this document and let us know if you have any questions. The scenarios about a student being 'symptomatic' is in regards to symptoms that are not normal, or worsening, for your child.
-- There are many other documents on our Re-opening page that can answer many questions you might have, specific to ACS, or more general procedures for schools regarding COVID, staying at home, etc. Here is the LINK to that webpage.
