A staff member will be there to greet you and direct you to the next available table. Once you’ve picked up your device you will exit from the opposing media center doors to avoid cross traffic. Signs will be posted for your convenience and safety. With that stated, please note, no one will be allowed to enter the building if they are not following proper guidelines of wearing a mask. No exceptions and masks are not provided at this time.

School Fees
Due to the pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding the ability to host athletic/extracurricular events at the high school, we've decided to reduce the student fee for the 2020-2021 school year. The fee will be reduced from $120 to $60 this school year and students will still get all the benefits previously outlined in the proposal. Students receiving reduced price lunches will have their fee reduced from $50 to $20 and all free lunch students will be exempt from the fee. We ask that the student fee be paid when picking up your chrome book. Everyone have a good day.

Graduation Cancelled for August 8, 2020

Bearcat Families,

Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in the community and minimal student interest, Anderson County High School has decided to cancel the in-person graduation ceremony scheduled for this Saturday, August 8th.  In the past month, we have administered multiple surveys to the Class of 2020.  This morning we reviewed the most recent google survey, which was made available to students last week, to determine interest in participation for the in-person graduation.  Fifty students acknowledged that they would be in attendance, and sixteen responded that they would not attend.  We realize that the cancellation of the in-person graduation will be disappointing to some students and their families; however, we feel this is the safest option for all parties involved at this time.  As always, we appreciate your support as we make difficult decisions during these trying times. 

ACHS 2020 Graduation Ceremony Survey
This survey is only for the 2020 seniors to answer. To get adequate numbers on senior participants, please indicate with a Yes or No if you plan on attending the ACHS Graduation Ceremony on Saturday, August 8, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. The ceremony will be held on the ACHS football field.
Click the link below to access the survey [You MUST use your school email account to answer this survey].

Once all fields are completed, please turn in your form to Ms. Warford in the West Wing Office [formerly the Main Office] to obtain your parking pass. You may also obtain a form in the West Wing Office. Students must display their passes on their rearview mirrors. Parking checks will be made periodically to ensure students are parking on campus legally. The ACHS Parking Plan is also attached. Please make sure to read it in order to know the parking lot procedures for student pick-up, drop off, student driver parking, faculty parking and visitor parking.
2020 Graduation Ceremony

Good afternoon, Bearcat families!

Over the past couple of weeks, ACHS provided all Class of 2020 students with a survey regarding their interest in an in-person prom and graduation.  Results from the survey indicate that roughly 55% of students have no interest in a prom at this point in time.  Approximately 75% of students indicated that they would like to have an in-person graduation ceremony.  

Based on the survey data and if allowed by state/local protocols, ACHS will be hosting an in-person graduation on August 8th at 9:00 AM on the ACHS football field.  We will be working with the Health Department to make sure procedures are in place to keep everyone as safe as possible.

We appreciate your patience and will be sending out more information as it becomes available.
