AMI Packet

(Alternative Method of Instruction)

In the event that school is canceled, due to an emergency or an exceptional circumstance like inclement weather, this packet will take the place of make-up days at the end of the year for up to three days.

Parents were given their child’s packets at Parent Teacher Conferences on October 25, 2018.

Please put this packet in a safe place, so it is not lost or damaged. The school will contact you in the event of school closing and let you know which AMI day to complete.

Inside this packet, you will find everything you need for your child to complete the assignments.

·      Instructions

·      Pencil

·      Lessons

Please keep each packet stapled together and return the complete packet to your child’s teacher, so your child will not be counted absent. If packet is not returned, then your child will be counted absent for those days.


Thank you,

Lana Hughes
