April 3, 2020 Update

Hello Avon Eagles and Our Eagle Families,

Provided are updates that will help you navigate all things Avon High School under our new education format.  We hope this update gives you the additional insight you need.

Grades

As Mr. Laub indicated in his communication with the district, Avon Local Schools is continuing our education model for the month of April.  The AHS format will remain very similar to our practices the last three weeks.

The third quarter in PowerSchool will include entries for the following weeks:  3/16, 3/23, 3/30, 4/6, 4/20, and 4/27.  You will begin to see PowerSchool updated with entries in the coming weeks as teachers post these grades.

Should school continue to be closed in May, additional entries for weekly lessons will be added and entered into PowerSchool.  

Please note: teachers will be exempting students from making up missing work or assessments prior to March 16th, as collection of those materials or the administering of assessments has been been made problematic by the pandemic 

Students: your engagement in classroom lessons, in a meaningful way, has been designed so that you may earn an A for the semester.  This means you must be engaged to earn these grades.

Art Show

Unfortunately our annual art show is not able to take place this year. However, our art teachers have put together a virtual showcase of their students’ work. Follow the Youtube link to see their amazing work! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJ37ngPIOnw

AP Update

The CollegeBoard announced new test dates last night, which will largely fall in the first two weeks of May, with make-up dates in early June.  AP teachers will share this information with you.  We are aware some students no longer wish to take AP exams and the CollegeBoard has made note there will be an option to withdraw from testing.  Once this process is known, we will share this with our students. 

Seniors

Do not lose hope.  Provisions for alternative dates for senior events are in the works. It remains our goal to provide you the experiences of your senior year such as awards night, prom, and graduation.

Teacher & Counselor Communication

Over the last three weeks, teachers, administrators and counselors have been reaching out to your households, by phone, especially if a student is not engaged in learning. Counselors are calling your homes on topics such as CCP, next year’s schedule, course engagement, wellness checks, and routine personalized counseling. Often, these phone calls are coming to you as ”private” or “unknown” numbers. If at all possible, please take all unknown calls at this time. It is probably us. Check your voicemail boxes as well, as we are often finding your messages full. Thank you!

State Testing

Our Governor and the Ohio General Assembly enacted House Bill 197 to address several issues raised by the novel coronavirus pandemic. This legislation removed state testing requirements for Ohio students for the Spring of 2020. In addition, the Ohio Department of Education has received a waiver from the U.S. Department of Education for all federally mandated student testing for the Spring of 2020.  Seniors who needed to test this spring to earn graduation points, have been exempt from those point requirements.  

Student Council Spirit Activities

AHS Student Council has organized several spirit themed activities for you to participate in during our time away. Follow AHS Student Council’s Twitter: @avon_stuco
