August 2, 2019

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians:

I hope you are having a wonderful summer but I have to say I am excited to welcome you all back! The building is so quiet and I miss the student energy.  I hope your summer has brought plenty of time to relax and enjoy quality time with family and friends.

We are thrilled to welcome our new staff to the AHS community:
Heather Allen- Nurse
Brian Cote- Dean of Students (Classes of 2021 & 2023)
Christine Carney- STEM 
Michael de la Pena- World language 
Sara Horan- World language 
Brad Jackson- Wellness 
Regina Jardon- English 
Kameron Thomas- History 

Schedules for 2019-2020 for all new students will be mailed on Tuesday, August 6, 2019.
If you do not receive a schedule please call the AHS main office to request one. New students who have not completed enrollment should contact the Superintendent's Office to register.

All students, grades 10-12, will be able to view their schedules on iStudent and iParent on the morning of Wednesday, August 7 after 9am.  
Any current AHS student who does not recall how to access iStudent can email Linda Chaney
to have their account reset.
(Members of the Class of 2023 will receive their iStudent log-in information at New Student Orientation but can see their schedules through iParent if it is set up.)

It is important to note that the schedules are not 100% finalized and there will be some changes as
we try to balance out class sizes and meet the needs of all students.  The counseling staff and administration have been working tirelessly this summer to produce the best schedule for the
greatest amount of students.  Any blank space in the schedule indicates a study hall.  Study hall
room assignments will be reflected on schedules by the first day of school.
If you have not already done so, please visit our website and sign-up for iParent.

Our guidance staff will return to the office on August 20.  If you would like to set up a meeting 
with your counselor regarding schedule changes, we will be offering 15 minute appointments 
from 8:30 – 11:45, and 12:30-1:30 on August 20, 22, and 23.  On August 21 counselors will be available from 11:30-3:00 so they can be present at the New Student Orientation from 4-6pm.  
You may call the high school main office at 508-881-0177 to arrange an appointment.

If you would like to email the main office please use the following address:

Ashland High School does not have a school supply list.  Teachers will share with students what is needed for individual classes over the course of the first couple of days.  Students should plan to start the year with a notebook and writing utensils (pens & pencils).  Students are allowed to carry backpacks at AHS and all students are assigned a locker.  Students can rent a lock for their locker through the front office for $5 or bring their own lock and provide the office with the combination or copy of the key.

Community Service opportunity:
We are looking for students interested in helping to paint some of our main hallways and office spaces that need some freshening up.  Reach out to Ms. St. Coeur for more information!  We are hoping to paint the week of August 12.  Times are flexible.
