DAILY ANNOUNCEMENTS – Tuesday, January 19, 2021
The French Club will be meeting on Teams this Thursday, January 21 at 8 AM until 8:20 AM. We will be discussing what it is like to be a teenager in France. Please join us for a short video and fun French Culture. See the email with the code to join from Madame. MERCI!
Ladies, here are a couple of things you need to know about homeroom: (1) Since we have been meeting in homerooms regularly now on LEAD and Learn days, starting TODAY, students in the Pink Cohort are no longer required to log in to homeroom via Teams on days 1 and 4. Your homeroom teachers will continue to start Teams meetings and all students who are learning virtually on that day are always welcome to join those attending in-person for homeroom and lunch bonding time. And (2), our non-class days on Wednesdays are not days off from school like they might be in some other schools. Our LEAD and Learn Days do count as full days of school, and you are required to attend, via Teams, your homeroom meetings where attendance is taken as well as all class meetings and other scheduled activities.
Sweatpants and Sweatshirts
Ladies, now that winter is upon us, please remember that you may NEVER wear sweatpants (or flannels) under your uniform skirts at school. If you are worried about being cold, you should wear tights or leggings (or uniform pants). When the faculty and staff agreed to allow students to wear leggings this year, the agreement included never giving students permission to wear sweatpants, even in areas that are uncomfortably cold at times. Also, since seniors can wear senior sweatshirts and all students can wear a quarter-zip uniform sweatshirt, there should be no need for a student to wear a non-AHS sweatshirt with her uniform. Please consult the student/parent handbook for all the details about wearing tights and leggings and sweatshirts.
Detention this Week
Just in case you need to know this, even though it’s not a LEAD & Learn day, DETENTION will still be held via Teams on Wednesday this week, which is a Day 2 and an in-person day for the Maroon Cohort. Detention will be held at its regular times: 7:30-8:00 a.m. and 3:00-4:00 p.m. Please check your email for a message from Mrs. Baughman with more details, especially if you are in the Maroon Cohort.
