School closure

Dear Arlington families and staff,

Gov. Jay Inslee this afternoon directed all K-12 schools in King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties to close for an extended period of time. All schools in Arlington will be closed for students starting Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 24. These are unprecedented times and we want to make sure we, as a school community, are helping to keep our students, staff and families safe and healthy.

Tomorrow, Friday, March 13, will be a regular school day. This allows an additional day of learning and time for students to bring home all personal items. Families should use this time to plan childcare for this extended closure.

If your child has medications at school that they will need at home during the closure, a parent or guardian must pick up the medication from the school health room.

We recognize this closure creates many different challenges for families and staff and raises many questions. During the next several days, we will work to address the many issues this closure presents. We will continue to provide ongoing information to you.

Thank you for your patience. Together, we will work through this challenging situation.

Dr. Chrys Sweeting
Superintendent
Arlington Public Schools

NEW CELL PHONE EXPECTATIONS

Please take a moment to review the attached letter (Click Here for Expectations) to learn more about our philosophy and approach to dealing with Cell Phone Use by Students on our campus.  These policy changes have been under review and re-construction for the past two years.  We recently surveyed classroom teachers about the impact of distractions during instruction and more than 70 percent indicated cell phone use during class is a problem too frequently.  Effective Oct 1, students will be expected to silence their phones and store them in their backpacks or in a classroom caddie system as directed by the classroom teacher.  We are discouraging students from keeping phones on their person during instructional time to avoid the distraction of text messages, social media and other distractions.  Students can still use their cell phones for educational engagement under the direction of their classroom teacher.  Systems will vary based upon course content, grade level and the established expectations of the classroom teacher.  Consequences for not following the policy are clearly stated and will be shared with students prior to the Oct 1 effective date.  We will meet with kids during an extended 5th period later this month to ensure we all understand.  As noted in the letter linked above, we have a "Plan, not a Ban" at AHS.  Some schools have elected full bans on cell phones, but we do not believe this serves our students best in their preparation for life beyond AHS.  Nearly 97% of our teachers believe we share a responsibility as an educational institution to teach our kids proper cell phone use as they work toward career readiness.  It's all about proper time, place and application.  Thus, we will do all we can to help them mature, learn and grow into responsible, prepared adults.  Lastly, we want to support every classroom environment by increasing student engagement, improving interpersonal communication and building more opportunity for distraction-free learning periods for our kids.  Please support our efforts and review the policy expectations with your student.   

CHARACTER STRONG

Each month moving forward we will communicate a character trait we hope to instill in Every Eagle. For the Month of March our character trait is Honesty.

AHS MISSION STATEMENT

Arlington High School is proud to be a collaborative learning community where all staff inspire all students to act as responsible, productive citizens who embrace lifelong learning.

Arlington High School creates a safe and caring environment for students

The teachers and staff at Arlington High School want to make sure our school is a safe and caring place for your child. As stated in the school board policies and procedures and in our family handbook, harassment, intimidation and bullying will not be tolerated in our school. Our teachers and staff go through training at the beginning of the year to recognize the signs of harassment, intimidation and bullying and report such behavior accordingly.

If a student feels harassed or threatened in some way, they can make a complaint at the school. Informal reports may also be made to any staff member. Such complaints will be appropriately investigated and consistently handled. Students may also submit a report using the SafeSchools Tip Line that’s available on the front page of our school’s website.

Your child’s safety and well being is a priority for us. We want them to thrive in a positive environment that promotes learning. Please call our main office if you have any questions.
