Watch the video explaining all below here.

The Archer City ISD faculty and staff are eagerly awaiting your children’s arrival this year! Our primary goal continues to be the safety and well-being of our students and staff. In order to adequately prepare for a smooth start of school, we are needing several pieces of information from you. And, in turn, we would like to share some info with you. Please read this entirely and carefully. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call your campus office for clarification. Please respect all deadlines listed below so that we may adequately prepare.

You may review the “ACISD Return to School Plan” posted on the ACISD website at www.archercityisd.net. The plan outlines many procedures and policies relating to COVID-19 and the precautions we are taking to ensure your child’s safety. This plan may have amendments as the CDC changes guidelines. 
 
Enrollment/Registration – Due Friday, August 7, 2020
ALL parents/guardians will need to log in to acisd.schoolmint.net using your EXISTING account. Please do not create a new account. If you need help resetting your password, please follow the reset password instructions. Even if you completed the re-enrollment process last spring or you recently registered as a new student to ACISD, we need you to complete the process for the new year. Be sure you have listed each child in your household that will be attending ACISD this year.

If you need assistance with acisd.schoolmint.net you may call your campus office.

Return to School 2020-21 Survey – Due Friday, August 7, 2020
Students will be allowed to elect virtual online learning due to COVID-19. While we hope to see everyone in person, we realize some may have special circumstances that require them to take this precaution. Students and all visitors are encouraged to wear masks while attending school. However, this is not a requirement. Students and staff will also be encouraged to wash hands often and social distance when possible.
We also want to let you know that students in grades 7-12 that elect virtual learning MAY still participate in extracurricular activities, AS LONG AS they are fully engaged on a daily basis with their schoolwork, submitting all assignments by due dates and attending practice, etc. required by the coach or extracurricular sponsor. Students that do not engage, complete, and submit assignments when due and attend practices, etc. will not be allowed to compete or participate.

Please complete the Return to School 2020-21 Survey indicating for each of your children, whether they will attend school in person or elect virtual online instruction.
