Connect 5 Outreach September 17, 2021

Good evening Eagles,


This is Principal Quigg reaching out with some important reminders:


Now that we have completed our second week of school, we have a few reminders and adjustments to make.

  • Students that arrive late to school (after 7:25) must get a late pass from the late desk in the main lobby. Recurring lateness will result in disciplinary consequences.
  • Students are not permitted to carry book bags during the school day.  Only bags such as string bags and computer carrying cases are permitted.  Once again, starting Monday backpacks will not be permitted during the school day.
  • We have noticed a considerable number of students in the hallway during class.  Starting Monday, we will begin enforcing that any student in the hallway must have a pass.  In addition, students who are abusing their bathroom privileges may also be subject to disciplinary consequences.
  • As a reminder, while cell phones are permitted as a means of enhancing the learning environment, students must adhere to the policies each teacher has established for their classroom.  If you are asked to put your cell phone away, to avoid instructional distractions, please do so.  Refusal to comply with a teacher’s directive will not be tolerated and will result in disciplinary consequences.
  • One final reminder, while doo-rags, scarfs and bonnets are now permitted, students are not permitted to wear bandanas, hats, and hoods while indoors. 


Two additional announcements:


School pictures for underclassman are cancelled for Monday and Tuesday due to Lifetouch having staffing complications.  We will re-schedule for a later date.


We are excited to announce that we are moving forward with our homecoming plans this year including both our spirit week and homecoming dance.  Unfortunately, due to the current Covid metrics, we will not be having a pep rally this year.

For those wanting to attend our Homecoming Dance (Octoboer 9, 2021), the following provisions must be adhered too:


  • Students must have proof of vaccination or negative COVID PCR test within 5 days of event for students and parent volunteers.  AHS will have Covid testing available at our school on October 4th.
  • Students are not permitted to bring outside guests; the dance is only for AHS students.
  • Students and chaperones must wear a mask indoors.
  • There is no food or drinks permitted indoors, with the exception of bottled water.

*Please note: our homecoming Dance could be cancelled or postponed with very little notice due to rising metrics in the county or community.


Additional information about purchasing a homecoming ticket, including the parent/guardian permission form will be available on our website and social media sites early next week.


Once again, thank you for partnering with us to make this an amazing schoolyear!


Have a wonderful weekend!
