ONE-TO-ONE DEVICES - All face to face students will be receiving a one-to-one device in homeroom on Friday, November 20th. Any morning career center student or student who is absent during homeroom will need to come to the media center to pick up their device. Students will be bringing home a form that needs to be signed by either a parent or guardian and brought back upon your student’s return to school. Please ensure that your student takes proper care of their device and brings it to school daily. If your student does not have the required signature form, you can access it here.

Through GoFan, each ACPSD school offering athletics has a page on the platform dedicated to ticket sales.
Fans are strongly encouraged to order their tickets online each week as soon as the ticket sale links are published as seating capacity at all ACPSD athletic stadiums, gymnasiums, and fields will be extremely limited due to Covid-19 health and safety measures. These measures will include mandatory social distancing and the wearing of masks and face coverings by all spectators.
Fans should take note that once a venue's capacity has been met, no additional ticket sales will take place.
Fans who experience difficulty purchasing online tickets are encouraged to email GoFan customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
