School Lunch

Per the Healthy Hunger-Free Students Bill of Rights Act, all meals will be offered at no cost to ATC students. The SFPS District provides food services.

All students attending ATC will need to complete a meal application. Please complete an application at MySchoolApps beginning July 1, 2024. Although we are offering no-cost meals to all students, we continue to be responsible for collecting eligibility data. This information determines eligibility for P-EBT as well as funding for Title I, E-Rate, and other programs that benefit students

For the safety of all students, ordering and/or receiving food from delivery services such as Doordash, Grub Hub, Fetch, Uber Eats, etc., is strictly prohibited. Any deliveries will be held in the front offices until the end of the day.

For more info, visit: https://www.sfps.info/page/student-nutrition

Transportation

Santa Fe Public Schools has not yet released their school bus transportation routes for ATC. We will post those on our website as soon as we receive them, so please be on the lookout. Please consider utilizing the bus service this school year. We have requested that the district increase the number of routes and hubs for both morning and afternoon routes but have also seen decreased usage, which makes the request difficult to justify.

For more info, visit: https://www.sfps.info/page/transportation

ATC Bus Routes: LINK COMING SOON!

Parent/Caregiver PowerSchool Access

Parents who want a PowerSchool account must fill out a form required by the Santa Fe Public School District. If you already have an account or forgot your username or password, please go to https://sfps.powerschool.com/public.

Remind

Google Play

App Store

Remind

Remind is the official school communication app. Teachers and school staff will use Remind to send important announcements and messages about school events and inform you of any school delays or closures. Family members registered as "Parent 1" and "Parent 2" in PowerSchool already have an account in Remind. Please sign in to Remind using the same email in PowerSchool.

Families and students are encouraged to download the app and set up their notification preferences. For instructions on changing your notification preferences, visit https://help.remind.com/hc/en-us/articles/206430755-How-do-I-change-my-notification-preferences.

Please Keep in mind:

  1. Please do not add your phone number to your child's account. Doing so can cause you to accidentally merge your parent account with your child's account, and this action is irreversible.

  2. When you download the app, push notifications are turned on, and your text and email Remind messages are automatically disabled - so you do not receive duplicate notifications.

You must change your notification settings if you want text messages or emails!

DeanList

mobileserve

MobileServe

Each year, students must complete community service hours. Mobile Serve is the platform students use to track Community Service hours. When a student submits their hours, they must enter the name and email of the supervisor, along with a brief description of the service performed. Once submitted, the supervisor will receive an email with a link to verify the service hours. Lastly, the crew teacher will review the information the student and supervisor submitted and then approve or deny the submitted hours.

When students download the mobile app, submitting hours becomes much easier! With the app, students are encouraged to submit a photo of the service, tag their GPS location at the time the service is performed, and get a supervisor's digital signature on the phone or tablet - doing all 3 ensures expedited approval by the Crew Teacher.

Students sign in to the app with the "Sign in with Google" button and then use their ATC email address and password. This app is specific to students; there is no parent version. Students can also download a transcript of community service hours for college applications.

MyFlexLearning

Flexible learning time is an hour dedicated at the end of the day, Tue-Fri for students to engage in co-curricular activities and receive additional help and support from faculty and staff.

Three main activities include:

  • Clubs and Groups

  • Tutoring Intensives (teacher selected)

  • Study Halls (Independent & Collaborative)

ATC uses Flex time to increase opportunities and availability for students to engage in school activities; decrease the “busyness” of lunch time; increase self-directed learning and students’ ability to respond to and manage rigorous course loads, group projects, capstone projects, etc.; and decrease the impact of athletics, afternoon appointments, and other necessary absences from class time

SCOIR

Scoir is a free college search and application management system that connects everyone involved in the college admissions process. The Scoir platform connects students to a powerful set of tools to help them identify their talents, search for their college fit, plan with their supporters, and apply when ready. We have chosen Scoir to help you navigate college selection and applications. If you are familiar with Naviance, Scoir is the replacement.

As a parent or caregiver, you play an integral on the Scoir by providing your student(s) with college suggestions, financial information, and general guidance. Below is a short video to see how Scoir works.

How to access your Parent Account

As a safe, secure, student-centric college search platform, your child must first invite you to connect with them on Scoir. Parents or Caregivers cannot sign up for Scoir independently. Follow the link in the invite email you've received to get started. If you don't receive an email, remind your student to invite you.
