ATS Update: Online classes for the rest of the academic year

Dear Parents,

As you all know already, Governor Kemp has announced that all the schools are closed until the end of academic year.  Therefore, our Tamil school is also closed until the end of this academic year.  However, our online learning continues until the final exam.  Thanks for your continued support in helping your children to learn via online.  Our sincere thanks to all our dedicated teachers for making adjustment for online teaching.   Additionally, our much-anticipated fun-filled field day event is also cancelled.

We have not forgotten our seniors.  We would make efforts to celebrate their achievement and preserve their memories when they walk out of our school.  However, with the present situation, it is unlikely to have the graduation event in May.  We are exploring ways and will consult the public-school system and will plan to have the graduation event later when it is safe and convenient for everyone.  We will keep you posted. Until then, please continue to encourage your child to participate the online class.  Please follow the CDC guidelines and stay safe.  We wish you all the very best.

Thanks

Parking guidelines, Pre-K 1 and Pre K-2 passes

Dear Parents,

Just a few things we need to remember as we enter into another academic year. As you know, the school grows every year with new students eager to learn. Additionally, there are more vehicles coming into the school and we have more parking issues to deal with. We tried our best to answer your questions here. So, please take few minutes and read the parking instructions.

Parking Lots:

ATS has 3 different parking lots for parents to park, PGMS Bus Parking, PGMS Cafeteria parking and Shiloh point parking.

PGMS Bus Parking: Prek1, Prek-2 and Volunteers (with pass) are allowed to park at Bus parking on first come first served basis. Please keep your parking pass in the dashboard or hang it on the rear view mirror so that you can park at PGMS bus parking.The drop off lane can be used by every parent, but do not block the traffic in this lane.

Shiloh Point Elementary parking and PGMS cafeteria parking: If you are just walking your child to school, you will be parking in Shiloh Point Elementary front parking lot or PGMS cafeteria parking. We highly recommend to use Shiloh point parking as there are plenty of parking lots available to park. It is only few minutes walk away.

Speeding: We want to strongly remind you that you need to drive SLOW when entering and exiting the parking lots. There are many people walking across to enter and exit the school. We would like to have a safe environment for all of us and our kids.

Fire lane parking and street parking: Fire lane parking is absolutely NO….NO… Also, there is no parking down the street entering the bus parking or up the hill. It is causing a dangerous situation for people entering and exiting the parking lot, as well as creating an emergency catastrophe for first responders should an emergency occur.

Drop off area in front of the school: Drop off area in the front of the school, cafeteria side is only for drop off and do not park.

Few other safety things for parents walking their children to their class rooms:

  • If you are walking the child to the class room, please stay with the child, do not look at your cell phone and walk further away from your child.
  • Use the cross walk to cross the road and do not assume cars will stop if you cross anywhere else.
  • After dropping your child at the class, if you are leaving the parking lot, do not back up, please wait for few minutes and let the incoming cars go first.

We all need to work together to have a safe environment at our school.

Thanks
