Stay Healthy Jets!

Reports of Enterovirus D-68 have been circulating the country and media as of late, although there have been no confirmed cases of EV-D68 in Michigan yet. Regardless, we have some healthy suggestions for our students and families to avoid the virus. 

1) Frequently wash hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds. 
2) Avoid touching eyes, mouth, nose with unwashed hands. 
3) Avoid close contact (kissing, hugging), sharing cups/utensils/drinks with people who are sick. 
4) Disinfect frequently touched surfaces like doorknobs, remote controls, and computer keyboards. 
5) If you have asthma, be extra diligent about taking your asthma control medicines during flu season. 

There is no cause for alarm! Just practice these precautionary habits and stay healthy, Jets! For more information about Enterovirus D-68 click here

Lab/On-Line Offerings
Students who are looking for on-line classes during their traditional school day can create opportunities through the coordination of Mr. Mensing and their school counselor.  AVA has an expansive course offering list that includes general and advanced courses, elective and enrichment courses, and credit recovery opportunities.  

Seat Time Waiver Program
Students interested in taking classes through the STW program are encouraged to contact Jason Mensing at 734-869-7AVA to set up an appointment. After the initial phone/email conversation, parents/guardians and students are required to complete the pre-enrollment forms available on the left, under Enrollment.  Initial meetings will include discussions regarding student's needs and establishing an educational plan that will facilitate maximal growth. A curriculum, a highly-qualified teacher, and a mentor teacher will then be assigned. This will be the beginning of building a strong relationship and offering support to the student’s social and academic needs during their enrollment.  

We look forward to working with you and developing an individual academic plan that works for you.
