Inclement Weather

If your Home School District cancels school for weather only, they will not provide transportation to AGCS on those days; you would have to provide transportation to AGCS for your students.

If your Home District calls a 2 hour delay, they will then pick your students up two hours later than their designated time and transport your students to AGCS.

If your Home Districts is dismissing early due to weather they will contact AGCS and pick your students up at a determined time.

Please pay close attention to school closings. From time to time AGCS will cancel school but your district does not, please check for both districts to confirm closings or delays.
