AMS -Student Access to Building
In last week’s “Friday News”, I mentioned that I would be sending out a schedule for student building access this week. Unfortunately, due to building access guidelines established by DESE and the Governor’s Office, we are not able to allow students into the school building at this time. Once I receive word that students may access the school building, I will share the schedule via Constant Contact and on the AMS Facebook Page.   
No "Friday News" da semana passada, mencionei que iria enviar um horário para o acesso ao edifício estudantil esta semana. Infelizmente, devido às diretrizes de acesso à construção estabelecidas pela DESE e pelo Gabinete do Governador, não podemos permitir que os alunos entrem no edifício da escola neste momento. Assim que receber a notícia de que os alunos podem aceder ao edifício da escola, partilharei a programação através do Contacto Constante e na página de Facebook da AMS.

Additional information regarding tuition payments:
I fully understand the concern about the upcoming tuition withdrawal date. Please know that we have been in touch with FACTS Tuition Management and have confirmed that no tuition payments will be drawn while school is not in session.
Upon our return, we will work with families about payments during the previous draw.
Please take care and know that the entire team at AEEP is wishing everyone well.

The Latest Information Regarding the Philadelphia Trip
I am writing to you today with an update about payment refunds and travel vouchers. I spoke with Direct Travel today and am confirming the following:
·      Families will receive a refund of all money paid to Direct Travel with the exception of the $150.00 cancellation fee.
·      Each registered student will receive a $150.00 travel voucher. That voucher can only be used by that student or by a sibling and will expire after the 2020-2021 school year. 
·      Money will be returned in the form it was paid. If you paid by credit or debit card, the refund will go to the same card. If you paid by check, a check will be sent to you. 
·      All money earned towards the trip through wreath sales will be returned to the PTO. The PTO will then return that money directly to families. 
·      It is estimated that refunds will be processed within two weeks. Given the current realities, this is only an estimate.
 If you have any further questions about this or other matters, please feel free to reach out to me via email at matthewmaccurtain@abingtonps.org

Important Reminder
It is critical that you park in the parking lot and walk your student to the
building at drop off and pick up. There is to be no parking or idling in the driveway or van areas. This is a safety concern as well as a directive from the Fire Department. Please see the front desk with any questions or concerns.
Cold and Flu Season
In an effort to keep everyone as healthy as possible this cold and flu season, we thought we’d ask for your help in reinforcing the information we are providing in school to our students. One of the most important actions to avoid getting sick and spreading germs is to cough and sneeze into your elbow and wash your hands frequently with soap and water.  Please help us and encourage your student/s to do both. 
The following link provides more information on the importance of hand washing: https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing

AEEP Playground Use
We are happy to see so many families making use of the playground outside of school hours, and we encourage you to visit during the summer months, as well. Active play is so important for young children. Please just take care to closely supervise your child and be certain that the equipment is being used appropriately (e.g. going down slides feet first, not arms first; not climbing up either the inside or outside of the slide; not sitting or standing on the center of the teeter-totter). We want everyone to have fun AND play safely. Thank you!
Lora Monachino, Early Childhood and Out of District Coordinator
