AMI Day Information

We are excited to share that the Southside School District has been granted approval to offer “Alternative Methods of Instruction” or AMI days during the 2018-19 school year. This plan will allow the opportunity for all Southside students to be engaged in meaningful learning on inclement weather days or emergency days when conditions prevent schools from being in session. Follow the links below for the full letter.

Quick Directions & Notes

  • Have your child watch the PBS programs appropriate for his/her grade level as often as possible.  Your child might want to watch programs in other grade levels areas, that is perfectly fine.  
  • Choose the activities your child would like to complete for the week.  There is no certain number required.  
  • Contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Remember you will not be turning in these activities to the school.  Just keep them at home with you.

7th & 8th Grades

For AMI Days #11-18, our 7th and 8th grade students will be following the Arkansas AMI Learning Guide lessons through PBS. These lesson plans can be found at the following link:

They can also be accessed through the free app “Engage Arkansas PBS.” You can download this app from the App Store or Google Play. This information will be posted weekly on our school Facebook page and district website.

We will begin with the lessons for April 7 (Week 2 on the website). Each day, please choose from the activities listed and use the resources you have on hand to make these your own. You do not need to do every activity.
