The Department of Social Services and the S.C. Department of Education will begin providing Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) cards to children who are enrolled in school. P-EBT benefits assist in supplementing family food costs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
DSS has an address portal available for checking and updating addresses. The address portal website is https://benefitsportal.dss.sc.gov/#/pebt/addressverification. DSS strongly encourages all households who may qualify to validate their address prior to March 19, 2021.
Please contact the school if you have questions or need assistance.

Congratulations to our Honor Roll Students on all their hard work!!
The Academy will return to school 4 days a week beginning in the 3rd quarter. On January 11, 2021, all students who attend school in person at ATL will come to school Monday - Thursday and will do school virtually on Friday. Our hours of 8:00 - 2:00 will remain the same, as will our safety procedures (social distancing, masks, etc). You may request a change in your student's current educational model. If your child is attending virtual school and you would like them to return to in person learning, please make this request by calling our school office on or before December 4!

Below is a short video on how to set up a Google account. We are asking middle school students to create a Google account to use with Schoology. Please create this account with your student by next Monday, October 19. Thanks for your help.
You will notice that there was an error message at the end of the video. If this happens to you, just close the tab. Open a new tab and you should see that it works in that tab. This video explains that.
Beginning October 12, we will be using Schoology Enterprise. It is the same learning platform we used for the first quarter but the log in information is slightly different. You will go to the link chester.schoology.com. Students will still sign in with their school email, but they will use the password they use to log in to their laptop. This will also give them access to their school email. You will also notice that student courses are listed separately now (i.e. Math is in a different course from ELA, etc.). Students will need to check each course each day to complete the work. Please view the short videos and contact us if you have any questions.
The following information is for families who have chosen to continue to learning virtually from home:
