SAT

On Wednesday, March 3, 2021, the SAT will be administered to all pre-registered juniors. Due to the impact SAT testing has on these campuses, all non-testers will engage in remote learning on this day.

Upon completing testing, remote learners on campus that day may leave campus should they choose to do so. When in-person learners finish testing, they should continue their Canvas coursework, class assignments, grade redemption, etc.

 Open House

Normally we would hold Open House on March 8, but this is not a normal year. We will have a virtual open house, but unlike the Fall Open House, we will not have live sessions, but pre-recorded sessions from each teacher. We will release these videos on March 8. In the video you will see the following:

  1. An introduction or reintroduction of the teacher
  2. A reminder about Colts Owning Learning Together - i.e. the three commitments for teachers, students, and parents
  3. Anything important for parents to know regarding that specific course i.e. Spring Projects
  4. Contact information if you would like to speak with teachers one-on-one.

I encourage you to reach out directly to your child’s teacher should you have any questions, comments, concerns.

Asynchronous Day

The Texas Education Agency has approved the Arlington ISD's request to modify the asynchronous plan to include four days of asynchronous instruction for students during the spring. This time will allow teachers additional planning time and the ability to connect with parents. There will still be school on the four days, but all lessons will be asynchronous, and schools will be closed to students. Attendance will be taken on those days so it is important that students login for the day.

The four asynchronous days are:

  • Friday, February 12
  • Monday, March 8
  • Thursday, April 1
  • Monday, May 17
