Happy New Year Ospreys!

We hope that you have been enjoying a safe, restful and healthy Winter Break and we look forward to reconnecting with our students next Tuesday, January 5, when second semester begins.

Schedule for Week of January 4-8

  • Monday is a Professional Development Day--no classes for students. We are hosting a New Student/Family Orientation Monday evening at 5:00 via this Zoom link to welcome our 10 transfer students aboard.

  • Tuesday is the first day of classes--students meet in online core classes according to our Master Schedule (see grade-level tab)

  • No classes on Wednesday--to prioritize community-building and connection, we will host an all-school online NEST Meeting at 12:35 via this Google Meet link. In addition, advisors will check in with their advisees individually throughout the day to welcome them back, discuss elective choices and see what support they might need for the semester ahead. Elective classes will continue to meet Wednesdays online, beginning January 13 (view elective schedule here). Students can view their 2nd semester electives in Infinite Campus and may request course changes during the first two weeks of the semester using the Add/Drop form (find this form on the AHS website, along with many others, under the "Our Families" tab).

  • Core classes meet online Thursday and Friday according to the Master Schedule

As a reminder, we plan to remain fully online for the first three weeks of the semester; the earliest we will resume in-person learning is Monday, January 25.

May 2021 bring you each health and happiness--
and bring us all back together once again in the Nest!
