Weekly Update 3-29-21

Dear AFHS Parents:


Please watch this video from Mr. Wight:


This is Matt Wight with the latest news and updates from AFHS and WCPSS.

As I am sure you are aware, the WCPSS Board of Education voted to allow students the option of changing their present attendance plan.


Below is a link to a survey that we are asking parents to complete IF you want to make a change. If you want to remain in the plan that you are in now, you don't need to do anything. 


Link to survey to request a change from Plan to VA or vice versa.  Survey is now closed.  The first day back to school for all students that want in-person learning (Plan A) is Thursday, April 8th.

Frequently Asked Questions from parents regarding Plan and VA changes.


Bus Riders

Eligible bus riders currently in Virtual Academy returning to in-person learning must apply for bus service. The student must meet all transportation eligibility requirements. Students must also submit the health attestation form. Bus assignments will not be provided until the attestation form is received. Parents should click this link to apply for service ( and to submit the attestation form (

Requests made for transportation will be closed after three days if the attestation form is not received, and the parent will be notified.

Students will be assigned to a bus as quickly as possible after the attestation form is received. Typically, riders are assigned within a few days after the department receives all required information. Depending on the volume of students returning to in person learning, it could be longer.
