Hey, Bombers! I'm Mrs. Peachey and I'm beyond excited to begin as choir director for A-O. If you are thinking about taking an elective, why not join choir? We'll sing songs, make friends, and have a great time together. And if you're already in choir, why not bring a friend? Join us and make choir part of your school memories! See you soon!

8th Grade Promotion Update for Tonight For several days, we have been monitoring the weather forecast for this evening. Unfortunately, it looks very likely that thunderstorms will be occurring around the time of our 8th grade promotion ceremony. In order to ensure that we are able to appropriately recognize our students being promoted, we have made the decision to move the ceremony into Bomber Gymnasium at 6:00 PM. Please understand that this move will result in less seating being available for our guests. Additionally, please be reminded that masks are still required to be worn in schools. Students participating in the promotion should report to the Middle School AP room at 5:30 PM to get lined up and prepared for the ceremony. In order to make the ceremony available to as many people as possible, we will broadcast a live YouTube stream of the ceremony at https://youtu.be/GeoGCKd_8kA. Thank you for your patience and understanding
The Middle School Promotion Ceremony is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on May 27 at the football field. Illinois is currently in the Bridge to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois reopening plan, which allows for 60% normal capacity limits for indoor events. If severe weather prohibits us from conducting the ceremony outside Thursday evening, we will move the ceremony inside to Bomber Gym. If this change is made, we will communicate that information as early as possible using TeacherEase on Thursday.
Virtual Freshman Orientation is tonight at 5:30pm. All 8th grade students were invited to a Freshman Orientation Google Classroom, and we will use the link in that Classroom for tonight's presentation.
8th grade: Virtual Freshman Orientation is scheduled for next Thursday 4/15. Mrs. Mendez, the counselor, will also be visiting classes to talk to the students about choosing classes on Monday and Tuesday. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

The Argenta-Oreana CUSD#1 Remote Learning Plan has been shared at https://www.argenta-oreana.org/remote-learning--22
Hello Bombers, Today, Governor Pritzker reported at his press conference that he will extend the mandated school closure through Thursday, April 30th. This means the earliest we could return to school is Friday, May 1st. Like you, we have no idea if the mandated closure will be extended again. We anticipate that the district’s Remote Learning Plan will be posted on the district’s website no later than 5:00 pm tomorrow. Links will be provided for each school. Our plan will be continuously evaluated and updated as we move forward. Please review the plan for further guidance. We know that this is a situation beyond any of our control. We will get through this together. Our biggest concern is the safety and security of our students and staff. We will continue to utilize Facebook, Twitter, and our web site for further updates. #WEareAO Take care and stay safe, Damian D. Jones, Sr. Superintendent
Monday, March 16, 2020 AOCUSD Schools will be open for students and or parents from 2:00-6:00 PM tomorrow to pick up any materials that students will need during the mandated school closure. Additional information will be sent out regarding academic support and guidance for our students after we meet with our teachers tomorrow. Please be reminded that there is no student attendance tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020. Additionally, by order of the Governor, Illinois schools are mandated to be closed March 17 - March 30, 2020 We will continue to communicate with students, and parents throughout the coming days and weeks. Thank you for your continued support of our schools. Although the current circumstances can feel overwhelming, it is VERY reassuring to work with such outstanding people as we strive to support one another! #WEareAO
The Fannie May fundraiser with PATT will continue until we come back to school. Orders do not need to be turned in Monday. Please continue to collect orders. Thank you!
School Closure Announcement: You may have heard the Governor's press conference. As of right now, we have been mandated by the Governor to close schools and cancel all student activities from Tuesday, March 17th through Monday, March 30th. We have moved the SIP day that was scheduled on Friday to Monday. In simple terms, students will not attend school or any extracurricular practices and events from Monday, March 16th through Monday, March 30th. Unless this period is extended by the Governor, we plan for student attendance to resume on Tuesday, March 31st. This is an unprecedented situation. When we know more, so will you.
