2. Caps & Gowns: Tomorrow and Thursday in your package you will receive your Cap & Gowns.  We would love if you could all snap a quick photo of you wearing your cap & gown and submit the photo to the following form: https://bit.ly/EastGradPic Photos need to be submitted by this Sunday May 24th.  Here are guidelines to remember when taking a photo:
Please press Gown prior to taking photo
Photo can be taken using phone, iPad, computer.
Be mindful of the background, something non distracting, but don't back them tight up against a wall either.
Fill the frame of the photo: From about waist high to top of the cap. The top of the cap should be pretty close to the top of the frame.
Be sure you have enough light in the photo.
Pose them at a slight angle, looking into the camera.  Landscape the shot.

Attention AE Senior Students & Families (5/13/2020):

We hope you are doing well and staying safe & healthy! We also want to thank you for your continued patience as the AASD has worked to make plans for the end of the 2019-20 school year, as well as ways we will honor the senior class of 2020. Our District leadership team met with the Health Department and State Officials last week and were given the “green light” to hold an on-site “drop off/pick up” process. We have finalized our plans for the curbside distribution and pick-up of Senior items. We have been assured that this process meets all state guidelines for social distancing. Please limit to one vehicle per household and remain in your vehicles throughout the process for our worker’s safety. This will occur next week Wednesday May 20th & Thursday May 21st.

Please watch/listen to the following message from Dr. Mineau for more details about this process & Graduation Week - Watch HERE
