We will keep our ACS children’s and employees’ safety at the heart of each decision. Current events and updates due to health issues will be heeded. If circumstances deem a change in our mitigation strategies, we will communicate with you the changes that we will need to make in order to continue full time attendance in our buildings.
As always, shared communication with our families is very important. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have.

General School Safety and Crises Plan
Speak UP Speak OUT Wisconsin – a new tool from the Department of Justice to report incidents of school violence, threats etc. This can also be downloaded as an Android or Apple app (search SUSO from the app store)
School doors are locked when students are in session and admission is gained through the main office by buzzing in. All visitors are asked to register at the main office. Scrip purchasers are allowed to go directly to the scrip office.
Each school maintains a building specific school safety plan that is updated on a regular basis and is developed by administration with input from emergency personnel. This plan and all required safety drills are reported to the Wisconsin Department of Justice as required by Act 143 annual in December. Links to the two most recent reports are below.
