Artists of the Week

Painting students had to study an object and paint it three different ways on three different canvases! They also had to incorporate color theory when picking out the colors for their paintings. It's a lot of work, but the results are amazing! Please take a closer look at these paintings and other works in the gallery upstairs.

Check out our student's amazing art work by clicking the link below!


Is your student going to be absent?

Positive school attendance is the best predictor of student success. However, if your student is going to be absent, you can clear the absence one of two ways - email or call in.

You may report your student's full-day absence by emailing the Attendance Office at lnhs-attendance@avhsd.org

VIRTUAL *LIVE* Tutoring (Virtual Tutoring with a Live Person)

Did you know that your student has LIVE 24 HOUR FREE tutoring available in your student's PowerSchool? Our district has partnered with Princeton Review to provide every student with this amazing service. Your student can be connected with a tutor in any subject any time of the day, for FREE. These are not videos, they are live, vetted, tutors. Think of Uber, but for tutoring! The tutors will even edit papers for your student with less than a 24 hour turn-a-round period.

The easiest way to access this free, live, virtual tutoring, is to have your student log into google with their school account, log into Power School, look on the left side of the screen and find the live tutor button, and follow the easy to follow directions from there. If you need assistance, CLICK HERE or the button below for a tutorial.

In-Person 0-Period Live Tutoring on Campus

Live, in-person, tutoring began on our campus has started. We have daily tutoring from 7:45am - 8:40am in our library.

Students must check in at the door for tutoring. Students must be working quietly or receiving tutoring to be in the library before school.

We will host all tutoring in the library during these hours with adult tutors to assist your students. Use this time for quiet work time or to get specific help from our tutors.

TUTOR TIP: Have your work out and ready. Have specific questions for tutors. Get help when you are stuck!

How does my child get lunch?

Lunch is free for all and can be found at the multiple lunch sites on campus.

Food Services https://avfood.org/ is pleased to announce that beginning this school year, your student will receive meals at no charge as part of their school day thanks to the USDA's Covid relief plan. This is an automatic benefit for all enrolled students to students throughout California. It is important that our students are nourished in order for them to learn and not have the pressure associate with program eligibility.

This change means students are not required to complete a meal application or provide any specific documentation, however, we are still required to gather family income and demographic information to ensure that your student benefits from additional state and federal programs that are available.

The California Department of Education uses this confidential information to identify qualifications for additional funding that provides for many programs and opportunities for our students. Based on the information provided, eligible students may receive fee waivers for the PSAT, SAT, free college applications, or much more. The AVUHSD is eligible for additional supplemental and targeted funding for our student programs and services based on a variety of factors, including this data.

Lancaster parents, we need your help! Please, regardless of qualifications, or social-economic standing, please help us provide the best opportunities that we can for our students by taking the few minutes it takes to fill out this form. If you need any assistance filling out this form, email food@avhsd.org.

This confidential form* can be found at: https://family.titank12.com/income-form/new?identifier=3JD2ZE

*Please be careful of the most common errors: Do not put a space after any responses and make sure the name on the first page matches the name on the last.
