As a reminder, AMI packets are what students are to complete on days where we have inclement weather. Each packet will be labeled with a day numbered 1-10. We will instruct you on what students are to complete on our AMI days. When we take an AMI day, you will receive a text, phone call, or notification (if you have signed up for notifications).
