Dear ARHS students and families,
I am excited that our school environment is beginning to return to normal: many of the most challenging protocols we employed last year will be reduced or eliminated. As Supt. Martineau has explained, the health and safety of students, families, faculty, and staff during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic remains our highest priority. In addition, we know that providing uninterrupted, full-time in-person teaching and learning opportunities is critical for our students. In support this goal, we will continue to employ several key protocols, including requiring masks for students. The protocol are here.
As students and staff prepare for the reopening of school, I ask that they keep in mind that, excitingly, we are shifting to a later start time, with our school days beginning at 8:00 am each day. Additionally, according to the protocols, students will not need to observe social distancing protocols at lunch. So, we will be using this bell schedule, which accommodates three (no longer four) lunch periods.
As you plan for your classes for the first few weeks of school, it may be helpful for you to know that the first three days of school, September 1-3, will be "Monday" schedules. Beginning the following week, please plan for the schedule each day to align with the days of the week (i.e. Wednesday, September 8 will be a "Wednesday" schedule, etc.).
I look forward to seeing you all soon. Enjoy the remaining days of the summer.
