What Can You Expect From Us?

Important Dates for Information for Technology Training Sessions, Orientation, and Curriculum Nights

 

  1.  Guidance Meeting

Approximately one week after your child is enrolled, (or a week after placement tests are taken), you will receive a call from your child’s Guidance Counselor to set up a meeting. The Counselor will help your child select his/her courses for the upcoming school year. He/she will also help you log on to our Parent Portal. The Portal is your primary source of information during the school year. Not only will it provide you with constantly updated information and resources, it also connects you to your child’s grades, classes, and weekly assignments. It is vital that you connect to the Parent Portal in order to complete mandatory health forms through Magnus Health. All health forms must be submitted online; students MAY NOT begin school in August if these forms are not completed.

 

2. Upper School Media Center Summer Hours

Although we will not be physically open, we will remain available by phone or email as always.  As of now, staff will be working remotely and able to help with all parent and student technical needs. 

NEW STUDENT iPad Set-Up 2020-2021  

If a student needs further tech assistance with their iPad Set Up, they can email bd.techsquad@ahschool.com.

 

3. SUMMER INFORMATION

July 2020

 

You will receive an alertify message and an email in July letting you know that important information about the upcoming school year is posted on the Parent Portal. For your convenience (since new families may not be comfortable with the Parent Portal yet), we will also post this information on the New Parent Web Page. Students’ schedules will also be mailed home and posted on the Portal during the first week of August.
