Dear AHS Families,
Moving to Hybrid Learning
Hybrid Learning Begins on Monday, October 19th
Please see below for our schedule for the phase in of hybrid learning during week one. On the 19th and 20th only freshmen will come to the building. In-person learning begins for the rest of the student body on the 22nd and 23rd.
Families should have received an email notification as well as hard copies in the mail. We are aware that some families did not receive this email and are investigating the technical reasons for that happening. If you have not received information, please give the main office a call at (978) 388-4800.

What Does Fully Remote Learning Look Like At AHS when our Learning Mode is Hybrid?
What if I change my mind and want to participate in the Hybrid Learning Model?
A change of learning model form must be completed and submitted to Kathy Morrill. Please expect that there will be some lag time between the form being submitted and the implementation of the change (from remote to hybrid). We may need to make adjustments to class locations based on a change to the size of the cohort.
ATTENTION ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS AND STAFF:
Please review the following checklist of symptoms prior to entering any school building each day.
Does the student or staff person have any of the following symptoms?
❏ Fever (100.0° Fahrenheit or higher), chills, or shaking chills
❏ Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
❏ New loss of taste or smell
❏ Sore throat
❏ Headache when in combination with other symptoms
❏ Muscle aches or body aches
❏ Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
❏ Fatigue, when in combination with other symptoms
❏ Nasal congestion or runny nose when in combination with other symptoms
If so, please stay home, call your doctor, and get a Covid-19 PCR test. Please leave a detailed message on your school’s sick call line. A negative Covid-19 test and 24 hours fever free without use of medication and improved symptoms are required to return to school.
Any individual who enters a school building with symptoms will be sent home immediately.
Parents of students are asked to provide 4 contact numbers for a responsible adult to pick up your child in a timely fashion in the event of illness.
Thank you for your assistance with keeping our school community healthy during these unprecedented times.
