We are excited to announce that our UPLINK (Uniting Peer Learning, Integrating New Knowledge) program will be moving to in-person on Wednesday, April 7th for those students who are already on campus with the A/B school schedule. Fridays are the exception when all students are totally on line so we will also be virtual for that day.
Our schedule will continue to offer one hour of homework help daily followed by enrichment activities. A snack time is provided in addition to creative hands-on activities to add to the encouragement for students to engage socially in fun venues. Guest speakers are also sought to add variety and connections for career development and character building to maximize opportunities for success in life choices.
UPLINK is federally funded and free of charge to any AMS student. We will follow the school closure schedules with the exception of additional days for staff training and program building.
Attendance and participation will be more critical (than in virtual) in order to maximize the effectiveness of the program while maintaining social distancing guidelines. Parents should call the school office if absence is anticipated. No new enrollment will be taken at this time as we update our current roster.
