Hazardous Weather Policy
The following policy is from our Board-Approved Parent / Student Handbook:
During times of inclement weather, Austin Discovery School will update information in the News section of the website and notify families of closures or delays via text and/or email by 6:30 a.m. If Austin Discovery School closes for any reason during the school day, parents will be notified, and staff members will release students as you have authorized.
We are excited that there are 17 families who have signed up to participate in our Coin Up app to donate directly to the school. So far, collectively, we've raised $192 in the first month of use! Thank you to everyone who has participated. Next month, starting in November, we'll have a CoinUp Jar located in the front lobby so if you're not the tech savvy type or if you want to just get rid of all that spare change in your car, you will be able to physically "Coin Up" as well!
“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” - Howard Zinn
It may seem impossible for a little spare change to make an impact, but consider this; If 500 people donate $10 of spare change each month – it adds up to $5,000 a month, or $60,000 a year! That’s enough for ADS to do sooo much good.
Now there’s a simple and painless way to donate your spare change. ADS is thrilled to partner with Coin Up, a revolutionary mobile donation app that virtually rounds up your credit or debit card transactions to the next dollar, and automatically donates your spare change to ADS every month. You can even set a monthly limit so that your donations never exceed that amount!
You can Coin Up in 3 Easy Steps:
1. Download the (free) Coin Up App from the Apple Store OR visit coinupapp.com
2. Select ADSI or Austin Discovery School as your charity
3. Link your bank card & set a monthly limitIf you haven't signed up yet because you have an android phone, the good news is that CoinUp can now be found on Google Play.
