ABSS has chosen Plan C for the 2020-2021 school year, which is 100% remote learning for the first nine weeks. Please click here to see the Virtual Open House PowerPoint that was shared on Thursday, August 13th at 6:30pm. Thank you for your support and patience as we work to prepare for a smooth transition to 100% remote learning for the first nine weeks of the 2020-2021 school year.
ABSS has created and posted a Plan C document (English/Spanish) on the district website and will be sharing via ConnectED email and via social media. It includes the sample elementary/middle/high schedules to help students and parents understand more about what remote learning will look like this fall.
These documents are on the website here:
National Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15th and goes through October 15th to celebrate Latinos, their culture and history, and their contributions to the United States.
Did you know that almost half of the students at GMS are of Hispanic descent?
The U.S. Census Bureau uses the terms Hispanic or Latino to refer to "a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin.” Hispanics or Latinos can be of any race, ancestry or ethnicity.
HHM started as Hispanic Heritage Week in 1968 by President Lyndon Johnson, it was expanded to a month by President Ronald Reagan and enacted into law in 1988. Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica celebrate their independence days on September 15th, followed by Mexico on September 16th, and Chile on September 18th.
During the next few weeks, you’ll learn more facts about Latinos in the US.
