JULY 31

I am so excited to welcome your child back to school on Wednesday, July 31. 

While students and staff have enjoyed summer break, the team in our Administration Center and schools has been busy preparing for the 2024-25 school year. So many great things happened last year, and I'm confident this will be yet another school year where ALL belong, learn, and grow in Avon Schools.

Here are just a few of the big things you can expect:

  • Student enrollment should eclipse 11,000 this school year as more families continue moving into our community.
  • We're busy making room for more students in our schools without an increase to taxpayers or the use of referendum funds. The renovation and expansion at Pine Tree Elementary wraps up this summer. You'll see projects continuing at Avon High School and Avon Middle School West as well as new projects underway at Avon Middle School North and South, Avon Intermediate School East and West, Cedar, Maple, and River Birch.
  • Your children will get to know several new principals and assistant principals at AHS, AMS North, AMS South, AIS East, AIS West, and Cedar Elementary.
  • We will welcome a host of new educators, support staff, and bus drivers who are beginning careers here in Avon Schools at the start of the school year.
  • We will work together to plan for next year. During the first semester of this school year, parents and staff will have a chance to help us prepare for next year's kindergarten through eighth grade redistricting.  If you'd like to learn more or participate in the effort, sign up today!

As Superintendent, I get just as excited for the start of a new school year as I did when I had my own classroom. I am looking forward to seeing your children in their classrooms, in action at performances and athletic competitions, and enjoying the wide variety of extracurricular activities in and around Avon Schools. Whether this is your first year with a child in Avon Schools or your 15th, the following video captures just a hint of what makes us special:

I'm certainly Avon Proud, and I hope you feel that same sense of pride in our schools, our students, our educators, our staff, and our community. 

I look forward to another school year of working together to ensure ALL belong, learn, and grow in Avon Schools.

Sincerely,

  • For students in grades K-8, their school's registrar will verify that your online registration is complete by sending a welcome email. If additional documents are needed, you'll receive an email requesting the needed items
  • For high school students, after you complete online registration, please contact your student's previous school as soon as possible to obtain a copy of their transcript. You will need a transcript to place your student in the proper classes for the upcoming school year.

Thirty-five employees have completed School Safety Specialist training.

Thank you for supporting your child in making Avon Schools a safe place for all to belong, learn, and grow!
