AMI Day to-do list for Middle School families
   
If there is inclement weather in the forecast, families can do a few things to get ready for an Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) Day.
   1. Download the Fort Zumwalt app so you will get a notification from the district if in-person learning is canceled due to inclement weather. 
REMEMBER: You will also get a phone call, just like on a traditional snow day. Remember: You can also sign up for texts. Follow these instructions. And remember: We always post school cancellations/closures on all of our websites.
   2. Come home prepared. If there is inclement weather in the forecast, be sure to bring home the materials you will need for an AMI Day. 
REMEMBER your Chromebooks and chargers.
   
3. Should the district call an AMI Day, your student should check-in on Canvas for the assignments for the day. When students turn in their assignments for the AMI Day the state doesn’t require us to make it up! (The state allows us to use up to six (6) AMI Days.)

Did you know: 
During their 13 years of school, the Class of 2021 has only experienced three years where the district had six or more snow days? 2010-2011 (2nd Grade); 2013-2014 (5th Grade); and 2019-2020 (11th Grade. Doesn't include COVID-19 closure)
