Summer is over for most students in Ashe County on August 6th. Most kids probably thought the summer went by way too fast, but on August 7th kids will have to get back on the busy Ashe County school schedule. The daily school schedule will be 8:25 to 3:25 for ACHS. ACHS is hosting a Freshman Orientation on Monday, August 6th from 9:00 till 11:00. Parents and Freshman will gather in the auditorium at 9:00 a.m. with a presentation of information needed for the coming school year. They will then have time to locate their classrooms and meet with teachers. Schedule change requests can be made in person by the student during the school day on August 7 and 8 during normal school hours. The window for schedule changes will close at 3:30pm on August 8. Exceptions to this will be for WCC classes and inevitable errors that are discovered as we move through the first week of school. They will not be able to honor schedule change requests made after the start of the school year. The 2012 – 2013 parking passes this year may be purchased from the School Office for $30.00. Students must present a valid driver’s license. The 2012-2013 student meal prices will $1.00 for breakfast, $2.10 for lunch and $.40 for student reduced lunch.
