Parking Information for Students and Parents

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 East Wing and West Wing Offices. 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. Parents and students-make sure to read both documents in order to know the parking lot procedures for student pick-up, drop off, student driver parking, faculty parking and visitor parking. Thanks.

Senior Announcements
Baccalaureate is Sunday, May 23, 2021 at Sand Spring Church at 2:00 p.m. All seniors are asked to arrive prior to 2:00 p.m. wearing graduation gowns (no caps). The service will be live streamed for family and friends. 

If you did not pick up graduation tickets, they will need to be picked up at ACHS this week (See Mrs. Rhody). If you have extra tickets, you may give those to another senior, as this will not put us over the mandated capacity limit, however, we have been limited by Alltech to seating in groups of eight (8) and socially distanced from other family member groups. Therefore, if you bring more than eight members to the ceremony, they will have to sit in a different seating pod/area. Seating pods will be marked with yellow tape for visual access when you arrive at the arena.

Graduation practice is Thursday, May 27, 2021 at Alltech Arena. Buses will depart ACHS at 8:30 a.m. Practice is mandatory for anyone planning to participate at the ceremony Friday evening.

Please remember to take care of all lunch fees, instructional fees, turn in Chromebooks, and other obligations prior to graduation practice.

Refer to the senior calendar and website for information about exams, textbook return, and the senior drive-thru.
Senior Drive Thru
Please see map below for pickup route of senior items on Thursday, May 27, 2021 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the East Wing building.

2021 ACHS Graduation Update (as of 4/22/2021)
The 2021 ACHS Graduation Ceremony will be held at Alltech Arena on Friday, May 28, at 6:00 p.m. Alltech Arena now has a 50% seating capacity, which will require each graduate to receive eight (8) tickets for their family members to attend. Specific family seating accommodations (with the exception of accessible seating) cannot be made due to the limited availability of seating in the arena. Children 0-5 years of age do not count towards capacity and do not require a ticket. Students will receive their allotted tickets in the coming weeks and will sign/date stating they’ve received them. ACHS will send out communications to families when that process begins. Due to capacity restrictions, tickets will not be reissued once a student has signed for their allotted tickets. Those who do not have tickets to attend will not be permitted entry into the arena. Viewing capabilities will be provided via streaming on YouTube (more details to come). 

All spectators will enter via the main entrance on the west end of the building. Once you enter through one of the doors, you will submit your tickets to a staff member and proceed to a designated available area and be seated. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, seating will be sectioned in groups of eight (8) throughout the arena. Seating will be on a first come first served basis. We ask that you do not sit in sections that are not permitted or move barriers to maintain social distancing guidelines. Masks must also be worn any time you’re in the building. Masks will not be provided for those who do not have one.

Bearcat Kitchen
A concept created by Elizabeth Swartz and Lucas Shouse to introduce our virtual students to the world of cooking.  Our goal is simple; to provide students the opportunity to learn to  prepare hearty & healthy meals for themselves and their families.  Our first session was open to juniors and seniors in the virtual program. We have 11 students in our first session and hope to have 20 in the next.  We include both healthy and hearty recipes.  Several ACHS staff members shared their family favorites with us!
3.5 Academic Awards Recognition for 2019-2020 Will Be Thursday, November 11

Virtual and hybrid students are encouraged to participate that day as well with their classmates.

Thank you,
