Message from the Principal

June 17, 2021

Dear Parents and Students:

Hello Abington families and caregivers. I am very pleased to announce that we have quite successfully completed the 2020-2021 school year! Our students had an amazing last day connecting with each of their teachers before their long-awaited summer vacation. I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your support and cooperation as we negotiated changing plans throughout the year. We have ended the year with tremendous optimism, and while we all look optimistically to what awaits in the fall, first we are going to enjoy a well-deserved summer break.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the summer information below. Summer reading expectations for Abington High School students can be found on the library home page. Each student should read two books over the summer: one book from the assigned list coordinated by grade, and the second book, a free choice.

The Main Office will generally be open from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm, except for the last week in June. The Main Office will be closed from Friday, June 25th through Wednesday, June 30th. Parents and students are advised to call 781-982-2160 to ensure that the main office is open. The Guidance Office will be open from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on Wednesdays from July 14th through August 18th . Working papers and transcripts are available during those hours. Once a student has a job, working papers can be processed. Working papers will be available at the Superintendent’s Office at 1071 Washington Street (781-982-2150). Report cards will be published during the last week of June. If your child owes money for a lost book, materials, or uniform, you will be notified of that obligation also. When you review the report card, take special note of final grades. Your child may have to attend the Summer Academy before returning to school to remain on track for graduation. Every year students and families miss information on the fourth quarter report card that can have consequences if not responded to in a timely fashion. Students should check for credit total, failures, and/or incomplete grades. Making a course up in the summer academy is always preferable to trying to fit it into next year’s schedule, or simply ignoring it. Also, to be eligible for fall athletics a student must have passed five classes in the fourth quarter and earned twenty-five (25) credits for the previous school year.

Any student wishing to participate in a fall sport at AHS must register online at www.familyid.com (search Abington). Please create an account and register your child for the fall sport they wish to play. All forms will be filled out and signed electronically through this registration. Parents and students can check the status of and update their physical form (must be within 13 months and on file in the school nurse’s office). User fees should be paid online at www.myschoolbucks.com. Student athletes and parents for any sport should plan on attending the mandatory Athletic Information night in August (more information to follow). Follow @AbingtonAD on twitter for updates and changes.

Summer Academy July 6th – July 9th, July 12th – July 15th July 19th – July 22nd July 26th – July 29th Abington Public Schools will offer a free Summer Academy for students who have failed a subject and need to recover credit and/or complete a sequential course. To be eligible for summer school remedial coursework, students must receive a 50-59 final average for the year. Guidance counselors will notify students who are eligible for the summer academy. For more information, contact Summer Academy Director Brian Lanner at brianlanner@abingtonps.org. or administrative assistant Ann Parks at 781-982-2170 or annparks@abingtonps.org.

Classes will begin on Wednesday, September 1, 2021. Details about the opening of school and freshman orientation will be emailed to parents and students in early August. Student schedules (2021-2022) will be available through the student portal on August 19, 2021, upon completion of the end-of-year state reporting. Anticipate an email notification in mid-August. Have a great summer! Sincerely,

Jonathan Bourn , Principal
