ACS Summer Information

KINDERGARTEN READINESS

The Let's Get Ready! Guide is intended to provide family-friendly resources on age-appropriate developmental skills, support tips, and at-home activities where adult/child interactions are the central focus. It is not intended to determine if a child “is" or "is not” ready for kindergarten. We encourage you to share this resource with families of rising kindergarten students.

NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION FOR 23/24 SCHOOL YEAR

 

NEW FORMS NEEDED FOR 2023-24: STUDENT HEALTH ACTION PLANS & MEDICATION AUTHORIZATIONS

  • If your student has (or will need) a school Health or Action Plan please make sure to have the plan updated and ready to turn in at the start of next school year. Even if your student had a plan for the 2022-2023 school year, a new plan must be reviewed and authorized by the student’s healthcare provider and submitted to ACS for the 2023-2024 school year. There are a few frequently-used health plan and action plan forms available on the Documents and Forms page of the ACS website and linked below. Health plans should be submitted to the front office when students return to school in August.

  • Students requiring medication administration at school, including the use of inhalers and EpiPens, must also have a Medication Authorization Form completed by their healthcare provider on file for each new school year. These completed forms should be submitted to the front office prior to the student needing to receive medication at school. Please find the link for the ACS Medication Authorization Form below.

** Please note that Alamance Community School is not a part of the Alamance-Burlington School System and we cannot act upon a completed ABSS form.

We also have copies of these forms in the school office, if you need a printed blank copy. We are

here to help, if you have any questions or concerns about authorizations or health action plans,

please contact the school office at frontdesk@alamancecommunityschool.net

CLOTHES BIN

  • You may have noticed the large green Clothes Bin that is located just before our entrance beside Kronbergs Court. The bright green bin is our “go-to” for a convenient way to recycle our clothes, shoes and textiles. Every pound that is recycled via our bin supports ACS! So, Clothes Bin is a Green Initiative That Earns ACS “Green”.

  • Most of the clothes, shoes and textiles discarded in local landfills could have been recycled. So, grab a garbage bag, fill it with hope and drop it off at the ACS Clothes Bin and support our school.

Below are the items that you can recycle and place in the Clothes Bin:

  • Clothes such as pants, jeans, skirts, dresses, suits, shorts, shirts, tees, tanks
