We wrapped up a great first week at Arlington High. It was fun getting to see the students after they had a restful summer break. By now all students have made it through orientation and been given a face-to-face explanation of the major rules of the school. So that everyone is also aware of the expectations, Click HERE for the same document that each student received. The second page includes our daily bell schedule and a list of our assistant principals and counselors. See below for information and upcoming dates:
It's just around the corner, so mark your calendars. It will be Monday, September 14 from 6:30-8:30 PM. Our PTA meeting will take place prior to Open House at 6:00 PM. Additionally, counselors will be on site during the night to help students sign up for the SAT.
PTA will be selling Munson Cox photography gift cards at open house. The gift cards will have a $500 value and they will be sold for $99.00. The gift card will cover your photo session cost and several hundred dollars in photos. The cards may be used for senior portraits, family portraits or any other type of photo session. This is a great value! If you have any questions, feel free to contact Suzanne Hudson at firstname.lastname@example.org
The AHS Bass Fishing Club will hold their first Meeting Monday, August 31, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in Mr. Austin's Classroom, D101 across from the Library. Student's please bring a parent representative with you if possible.
Student Morning Drop Off:
The City of Arlington is doing major construction on Cooper Street. Please allow extra time when dropping students off in front of E-Hall/Chicken Express.
Additionally please use the drop off zone along Park Row when possible. When using the drop off zone, please move all the way to the front of the lane before allowing your child to exit the vehicle.
AHS Meets Standard and receives 4 Distinctions:
AHS received a Met Standard Rating from the State and earned 4 out of 7 possible distinctions. We had the second most distinctions among traditional high schools in the AISD and an improvement of 4 distinctions from the previous year.
A/B Calendar and Plus Calendar:
As we start the new school year, it is always helpful to have the A/B annotated school calendar and bell schedule on hand. In addition to the calendar and bell schedule, This calendar will be released monthly. In addition to being sent via email, the Plus calendar will also be posted on our website, posted throughout the building, and the Plus Day will be announced over the PA after the pledge and moment of silence. The pledge and moment of silence are every day.
We have brought back two lunches to AHS for the 2015-16 school year. We have an early lunch, designated for freshmen, and a late lunch, designated for 10-12 graders. Some exceptions may be made to fit student scheduling needs. The student code of conduct states:
Dismissal from campus will be based on student classification.
To be classified at the next grade level, a student shall have earned the following number of credits by the beginning of the school year:
grade 9 0 credits on campus lunch
grade 10 6 credits on campus lunch
grade 11 12 credits on or off campus lunch
grade 12 18 credits on or off campus lunch
The expectation is that while sophomores have a late lunch, they are still required to stay on campus during lunch.
Parent Email Group:
I try to send out an email with current events/information at least once a week.

2015-16 Bell Schedule:
for your information, I want to detail our bell schedule for the 2015-16 school year. It is very similar to schedules that have been adopted by our feeder schools. Please take a look at this link.
The plan may seem a little confusing at first, but I assure you from personal experience students pick up on it quickly and easily. As always if you have any questions, please let me know. I'm always happy to answer concerns.
