  • A Message from Superintendent Hoernemann 

    Virtual Learning Day 

    Snow Days?? So far the weather has cooperated enough this school year and we are thrilled that we have not had to use a Snow Day. But we are planning for this. If inclement weather hits and our schools have to be closed, a Virtual Learning Day will be in place for our students. Avon Schools has submitted its application for Indiana’s Inclement Weather Virtual Option.  

    What is the Virtual Learning Option? 

    The Virtual Learning Option allows districts to make up days lost to weather with an online learning option. It gives schools the flexibility to schedule these days to meet the requirements of traditional make-up days. ACSC will now use this option. Don’t worry. Since September Avon teachers and students have been preparing to use the Virtual Learning Option so that if the time comes, they will be ready.

     What can I expect on a Virtual Learning Day? 

    • Teachers will have all learning activities posted to Schoology no later than two hours after the normal school start time
    • During the day teachers will have 90 minutes of live online office hours
    • All student questions submitted by 3:30 will get a response by 4 pm 
    • Virtual classwork will fit within the current unit of study
    • Assignments will be closely equivalent to school "seat-time"
    • Students will have five days, beginning upon their return to school, to complete work in the event they are unable to finish during the virtual day due to service outage or other inability to access learning materials
    • Options will be provided for students who are unable to complete their work virtually.

    You will know when ACSC uses the Virtual Option because it will be announced with the weather closure notifications and on our website. We have created a webpage especially for our families to learn all about the Virtual Learning Option so that you may make yourself more prepared and familiar with our procedures if bad weather strikes and the Virtual Option is used. Be sure to visit the Virtual Option Information site today.

    Many have expressed strong opinions of our efforts. We believe part of being progressive is leveraging technology. Nonetheless, we know it will be a significant change and not without challenges. We invite you to be part of the solution by helping us implement this effectively. Our students and staff have embraced this option which is an excellent indicator of the potential for success.

    As always, I welcome your feedback. Feel free to email me at mehoernemann@avon-schools.org

  • winter

    Winter has arrived! Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the bus stop and recess. Remember the protocol for going outside for recess is:

    ** If playground conditions are adequate and the temperature is above 20, recess will be outside.

    ** If playground conditions are adequate and the temperature/wind chill is between 20 and 0, whether recess is in or out is at the principal's discretion, with input from her colleagues.

    ** If the temperature/wind chill is at 0 or below, recess will be indoors and teachers will supervise their own students. The Gym may be used if it is available.

  • AHS Student Selected as U.S. Senate Youth Delegate


    Avon High School Student Rushi Patel has been selected as one of only two students to represent Indiana as a delegate to the United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP). The program will be held in Washington, D.C. March 4 -11, 2017. In addition, Rushi will receive a $10,000 college scholarship!   

    The USSYP was founded in 1962 through Senate Resolution and each year two of the highest-achieving students from each state, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education system overseas are selected through an extremely competitive merit-based selection process held at the state departments of education nationwide.

    “This is exciting news for Rushi and the entire AHS student body,” said AHS Principal Matt Shockley. “Rushi is a hard-working, diligent student and this exemplary recognition is a reflection of his work inside and outside of the classroom.”

    In March, Rushi will spend a week in Washington experiencing national government in action. He, along with other student delegates, will hear major policy addresses by senators, cabinet members, officials from the Departments of State and Defense and directors of other federal agencies, as well as participate in a meeting with a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. 

    For more information about the USSYP, please visit www.ussenateyouth.org.

  • AHS Marching Black & Gold Win 2016 ISSMA Championship

    The Avon High School Marching Black and Gold won the 2016 ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) State Championship (Class A)! This is the 13th championship (13 state titles in 16 years) for AHS. The band is led by Director Jay Webb. He is now the winningest band director in Indiana’s 200-year history.

    “The Band program is a great deal of pride for the school & community,” said AHS Principal Matt Shockley. “Winning 13 straight championships doesn’t happen by accident. There is no group who works harder.”

    During the intense competition, ACSC Superintendent Dr. Maggie Hoernemann said she saw nothing but “beauty and competitive grace” from the students. “They make all of us better and I could not be more proud!”

    The ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) Marching Band State Finals were held at Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis. This event is the culmination of many weeks of marching band competitions across the state of Indiana, bringing together the top 10 bands across 4 classes (A, B, C, & D) chosen from the Top 10 in each class in Semi-State competition during the previous weekend. This event typically attracts more than 20,000 marching band fans from across the state throughout the day.
