Eagle Reminder: AHS & AMS Virtual Learning Friday
All students and staff at Argyle High School and Argyle Middle School will transition to virtual instruction for one day on Friday, Dec. 11.
This decision is based on staffing limitations Friday on both campuses due to active COVID-19 cases and quarantines among staff, the limited availability of substitutes and multiple coaches out due to the football playoff game in Abilene. AHS and AMS will return to their regular in-person learning & virtual instruction schedules on Monday, Dec. 14.
As a reminder, next week will include two early release days (Wednesday, Dec. 16 & Thursday, Dec. 17) and winter break will begin Friday, Dec. 18 for all students and staff.
