SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Many staff members at ACA and several students want to support the McIntosh family by attending the memorial service for Amy McIntosh on Wednesday, April 15th at 1:00 p.m. in the Howard Auditorium at Oral Roberts University.  To make sure our students are still receiving instruction that day, we will have shortened classes according to the attached schedule that will be meeting before noon that day.  At noon, students with parental permission, and staff members who wish, will be dismissed to attend the memorial service. Remaining staff will have planned activities for students who stay at school.  Of course you may choose to pick up your child at noon if you wish.  There will be afterschool care as usual. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.  Please call the office if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Kirk Post, Headmaster
