TRAFFIC SAFETY

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated! Before and after school drop-off/pick-up is congested with the release of AMS, FAA and the bus hub. Please be conscientious of the many students (elementary through high school age students) crossing the street and the high volume of cars. Students and adults must use the crosswalks staffed with crossing guards. In order to keep everyone safe patience is key. Thank you for your help!



INTERNATIONAL WALK TO SCHOOL DAY!

International Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 4th!

Walk to School Day is an energizing event. It reminds adults and students alike of the simple joy of walking or bicycling to school, while building support for creating or improving safer walking and bicycling routes. This year, at least six AUSD schools will participate.  AMS students and staff are invited to join as well: simply commit to walking or riding your bike to school on October 4th.  Parents, read more about the event here and see the flyer.
