In the Spotlight.. Alternate Method of Instruction (AMI or snow days)

Dr. Jennifer Harris
Greetings Families!
Please read through this important and updated information. This school year our inclement weather days will be different for staff and students. In the past, during inclement weather school would be canceled for teachers and students. Now that the state of Missouri has allowed districts to have distance learning from home, we have the opportunity to use our inclement weather days as an Alternate Method of Instruction days or AMI distance learning days. Using these days as distance learning, will prevent extra days being added to the end of the year. AMI days are for ALL students enrolled regardless if they are blended or virtual or A/B day. All should participate.

Students should check their online learning platform (Canvas) to see what the teacher has planned on the modified agenda for the day. 
● There will be a posted assignment or project that the student must show either progress or completion (depending on the stated expectation from the teacher). 
● Attendance will not be counted for those students who do not virtually attend an AMI day. Students must log into Canvas and complete any posted assignment for that day for a positive attendance to be marked. A student who fails to log into Canvas will be counted as “absent” for that AMI day. 
● All special services will be provided if the service would normally fall on that day and will be arranged.
Emails with specific information was sent to you for K-5th and 6th-8th grade information.
