  • 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

    Sincerely,

     

    Margaret Hoernemann

    Superintendent

  • 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.

  • ACSC Receives Lilly Endowment Counseling Grant

    Avon Community School Corporation (ACSC) has received a planning grant of $47,558 under Lilly Endowment Inc.’s Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 Students.  The aim of the Counseling Initiative is to increase significantly the number of K-12 students in Indiana who are emotionally healthy to realize academic success, graduate from high school, obtain valuable postsecondary credentials, certifications and degrees necessary for meaningful employment. These students will also be prepared to compete and prosper in the global society in which they will live and work.

    The K-12 Avon school counselors will collaborate with local and regional organizations, such as Fleck Education, to assess the current counseling program and the social and emotional needs of all Avon students. ACSC is one of 284 Indiana public school corporations and charter schools in Indiana receiving planning grants through the initiative.

    “There is a growing need for us to assist our students in understanding their social and emotional schema. This grant encourages the local discussion of the current resources and programs we have and allows us to explore the wealth of knowledge we have in Hendricks County and beyond,” stated Sarah Altman, school counselor at Sycamore Elementary and co-chair of the ACSC committee for this grant. “We want our students to feel connected to our staff and schools, and we know we can play a role in helping our students feel safe at school. We are excited to begin this thorough investigation of our students’ needs and how we can advocate for helping them be successful in their lives,” she continued.

    Lilly Endowment Inc. is an Indianapolis-based private philanthropic foundation created in 1937 by three members of the Lilly family - J.K. Lilly Sr. and sons J.K. Jr. and Eli - through gifts of stock in their pharmaceutical business, Eli Lilly & Company. The Endowment is primarily committed to the causes of community development, education and religion and has a special commitment to its hometown, Indianapolis, and its home state, Indiana.
