I have enjoyed hearing your voices and speaking with some of you in class the last few weeks. I truly have missed seeing all of you and hope that you have continued good health.
Congratulations to those of you who have been improving your grades each day! While there are many things about quarantine that are not enjoyable, the opportunity to improve your grades by simply giving your best effort and turning work in has been helpful to all of you. The good news is that you still have four weeks to turn work in with the knowledge that it can only help your grade. I would encourage all of you to push through to June 17 and get as much done as possible. Friday, May 29, we will be sending out Progress Reports to your families.
The Intent to Re-Enroll forms are on Facebook for you to fill out. Please take a moment and go to: (Enrollment Form) to reserve your spot for next year.

Dear AFCHS Family,
Welcome to week two of our online learning Spring, 2020. We had great success last week getting over 80% of our students in class on a regular basis. This week let’s help each other out and make sure all of our students are in class this week! Here are some important announcements for the week:
Students are to report to each of their classes on time each day to receive directions and assignments. Please stay in class until the teacher excuses you. Teachers and staff are available to help you the entire class period.
All students have the opportunity to improve their English skills or learn a new language through Rosetta Stone which is being offered for free. Please contact Mr. Bagby if you are interested.
All work since March 16 online is to be completed. Each week there will be a competition to see which class had the most students turn in all of their work. An announcement will be made later today as to which class won last week.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Let me begin by saying how much we miss seeing all of our students on campus. The
safety and well being of our students has always been our priority. We understand that
adapting to changes that came with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic can be
overwhelming and taxing in all aspects of our daily lives. All of the changes and
uncertainty during this time can cause strong emotions in adults and children. We want
to make sure that students and their families are getting the support that they need.
Below you will find information about some free resources that you might find helpful.
Please contact me if you need additional resources (619) 909-2826, we are here to

SAN DIEGO — The Elementary Institute of Science will hold a graduation Friday for students from four local high schools in its “Girls Take Flight” drone training program.
The girls will be honored for their completion of the Federal Aviation Administration’s Remote Pilot Certification. They will also receive a $1,250 stipend for completing the program and a $250 bonus for earning the certification, allowing them to purchase their own drones.
EIS chose 10 students for the 32-week program, during which they learn to build and program drones and, ultimately, fly them. Students who attend America’s Finest Charter, Crawford High School, Gompers Preparatory Academy, Hoover High School, Lincoln High School, Morse High School and O’Farrell Charter School are eligible, according to EIS.
“Girls Take Flight is very rigorous,” drone instructor Anjelica Thang said. These girls who are graduati...
In light of the fact that San Diego Unified Schools have closed March 16 through April 5, our high school will be closing as well. Our students will be staying home and receiving their education virtually for the next two weeks. Teachers met with students today to describe for them how they would be receiving their work and instruction. Students were also given an opportunity to check out a chromebook to use during our time away from campus. The students are responsible for the chromebook while they have it in their possession and will need to pay for it if it is lost or damaged. Some teachers sent home packets of materials that the students will be expected to complete. Most teachers will be using Google Classroom or some other platform which the students use currently. Your student will need to work at least 2 to 4 hours per day to keep up with their school work. Please remind them that they are not on vacation and need to do their schoolwork. The teachers will be avai...
