- Lunch Visitor Policy -
Due to the number of students served lunch in each of the lunch periods and in an effort to maintain student safety and still allow visitors for lunch, the following policy has been adopted by the Avon North administrative team. Visitors desiring to each lunch with a student must be a direct family member of that student, and they will remain in the office until the student can be notified. The student and visitor will have a separate setting for lunch that is not in the cafeteria. This setting may be in a conference room or at table in the guidance office.

Here Comes the Bus is FREE to Avon Families
Winter weather is right around the corner! This can make for slower than normal traffic and occasionally cause buses to run a little behind schedule. Be sure to download the free Here Comes the Bus app from the App Store or Google Play. Just sign up and you will know exactly where your child's bus can be found. You can even receive alerts when it is near your home.

AHS Marching Black & Gold Win 2016 ISSMA Championship
The Avon High School Marching Black and Gold won the 2016 ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) State Championship (Class A)! This is the 13th championship (13 state titles in 16 years) for AHS. The band is led by Director Jay Webb. He is now the winningest band director in Indiana’s 200-year history.
“The Band program is a great deal of pride for the school & community,” said AHS Principal Matt Shockley. “Winning 13 straight championships doesn’t happen by accident. There is no group who works harder.”
During the intense competition, ACSC Superintendent Dr. Maggie Hoernemann said she saw nothing but “beauty and competitive grace” from the students. “They make all of us better and I could not be more proud!”
The ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) Marching Band State Finals were held at Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis. This event is the culmination of many weeks of marching band competitions across the state of Indiana, bringing together the top 10 bands across 4 classes (A, B, C, & D) chosen from the Top 10 in each class in Semi-State competition during the previous weekend. This event typically attracts more than 20,000 marching band fans from across the state throughout the day.
