On the date of the test, check in will begin promptly at 8:15 a.m; students must be on time. Students should bring the following items to school on March 31:
* Photo ID
* Number 2 pencil(s)

Remember! All of AHS students will be issued an iPad and case combination for their use during the school year! We are so excited about continuing this opportunity for our students! Textbooks, class-specific apps, and learning tools will be loaded onto these devices. As such, the iPad is a required learning tool each day for our students. Students’ personal devices will not have the same capabilities, including access to AHS’s wireless. Please refer to the iPad handbook located on the AHS website (Our School drop down menu) for more information. Before the device can be issued to the student, parents must visit the My School Bucks link (on the Parent drop down menu on AHS’s web page) in order to pay the required $50 ACS Technology Fee and also to electronically sign the required Technology Agreement form. Please note that before parking passes can be issued, the AHS iPad/Technology Fee must be paid.
