Hello Parents,
I can’t believe the summer is over and we start school on Monday.  I’m excited about the opportunities a new school year brings, and  I can’t wait to greet the kids for the first day of the 2015-16 school year!!! But before we get started, I wanted to give you some updates below:

Student Morning Drop Off:
As most of you know the City of Arlington is doing major construction on Cooper Street.  Please allow extra time when dropping your child 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:
I could not be more proud of the hard work from our students and teachers last year.  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.  
I have attached our 2015 accountability summary.  If you look at the four index numbers, you will see that the fourth is titled “Postsecondary Readiness”  While we went up in both Index 1 and 3 (Index 2 did not have a score for 2014), I am most proud of increasing 5 points in Index 4. We are striving to ensure that all of our students are prepared to meet post high school challenges after their time at AHS.

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, I am attaching the Plus calendar.  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.

Parents, 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.
If you have a child that has graduated, and would like to be removed from this list, please reply sender and I'll be happy to remove your name.  If you know someone who is not on my list and would like to be, please forward this email and have them email me directly.  They can also fill out the following link to be added to the list.


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.

The online participation forms for AISD Athletics, via , is now active and will soon be added as a link within InfoSnap. 

Thank you for everything you do to support our school!!
