SCHOOL DAY CHANGES FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL

Parents and Students of Ames High School,

The week of March 4th-8th and the week of March 11th-15th, AHS will be following the same schedule as the Elementaries and Middle School in the district. This means that there will be no school at Ames High School on Friday, March 8th, Thursday, March 14th and Friday, March 15th.

Instead of having parent teacher conferences the high school will be offering a Class Scheduling Orientation.  This orientation will be open to all parents and students that will be attending Ames High School for the 2019-2020 school year. The purpose for this change is to allow our teachers the opportunity to share with you what classes are available in all grade levels at the high school so our families can make informed decisions on signing up for classes.

The Class Schedule Orientation will be offered Monday, March 11th from 3:45 – 7:50, Tuesday, March 12th from 3:45 – 7:50, Wednesday March 13th from 3:45 – 7:50 and Thursday March 14th from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Parents and students will only need to attend one of the four dates.  This is not mandatory but is definitely encouraged.

A more in-depth schedule of what this orientation will look like will be coming out next week.  We will also be looking at offering transportation for any students or parents that would need it during these times. We are excited to offer this new insight on the classes we offer at Ames High!
