Message from the Principal

January, 2020

BUY BACK PROGRAM
There is only one week left before first semester ends.  Students with more than 6 unexcused      absences for the first semester are in danger of losing course credit.  This can impact students    in a number of ways including athletic eligibility, college admissions and graduation among        other aspects of a student’s learning. Remember, the Buy Back program is a way for you to          prevent this from happening. The last day to submit a Buy Back to have it count for first semester is January 17, 2020.  Buy Backs are available in the main office.                                                

MANDATED HEALTH SCREENINGS
Mandated health screenings will be conducted at the end of January.  Parents may contact School Nurses Donna Conso or Sarah LaPointe at 781-982-2160 with any questions.  Grade 9 students will have postural screening and Grade 10 students will have vision, hearing and BMI screenings. 

SECOND SEMESTER STUDENT SCHEDULES
Please be advised that second semester schedules begin on Tuesday, January 21, 2020.  Student    schedules are available on the student portal.  On Monday, January 13, 2020 teachers will be available during Bridge Block to help students navigate semester 2 schedule changes.  If a student is unable to access his/her schedule, please see someone in the main office or guidance office on Tuesday. 

ATTENDANCE REVIEW
Students are allowed three (3) unexcused absences per term in meeting the school-wide expectations. A student who accumulates more than six (6) unexcused absences in a semester will fail all half year credited courses or any class and will receive an attendance failure on the report card. When a student reaches three (3) unexcused absences, he/she may use the buy back option. One buy back is equal to one excused day. When a student reaches six absences during Semester 1, a buy back and letter will be sent to the student in advisory from the assistant principal’s office. A guidance counselor will meet with the student to ensure that he/she is utilizing the buy back and explain failures due to attendance. At the end of the semester, a student may meet with the guidance counselor to enter into an attendance contract that runs until the next report card to gain back lost credits.

Students are reminded to regularly check their school email accounts for important messages.  Students should consider their school email as an extension of the classroom and its use is subject to the same policies, rules and expectations. Student email should only be used for school work, and is subject to review by school administration. 

STUDENT SCHEDULES
Students schedules are available on the Student/Parent Portal and in the Main Office. To access information on the portal use the “Parent Portal Login” link on the High School home page. Parents may also sign up for school emails on the “Join Our Mailing” link on the APS home page. Follow AHS on our Twitter account @abington high.                                                  

Sincerely,
Teresa Sullivan, Ph.D., Principal
