Courtyard and Back of Downs Closed for Roof Repair

Hi all,
After the recent windstorm, the flashing on Down's House pulled loose creating safety and roofing issues. This has happened in previous windstorms and needs to be secured. There will be cranes working in the Courtyard and in the lane behind the high school on Thursday, March 21. There may be falling debris.

The area will be closed to foot traffic and parking for safety reasons. This will interfere with parking areas behind the high school, so please plan accordingly.
Thank you,

Belated Congratulations!

The Arlington Boys’ Track and Field team put on a terrific showing at the New Balance National Championships in New York City last weekend, participating in events on three consecutive days.

Seeded 10th overall in the Distance Medley Relay, Friday evening saw Jeff Candell ‘19 (1200m: 3:12), Roger Buckley ‘19 (400m: 51.3), Miles Harrison ‘20 (800m: 2:03), and Ryan Oosting ‘19 (1600m: 4:06) set a new school record and earned All-American status, placing 6th overall in 10:14.15. This race featured a new National Record by the race winner, London Valley, VA. This performance also qualified them for the New Balance National Outdoor Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina.

On Saturday evening the same four took to the track again for the 4x800 meter relay, where they were seeded 25th of 25. Oosting led off with 1:56, Harrison followed with a 2:04, Candell put in a PR of 1:59, and Roger Buckley anchored with a 2:00 flat leg, just breaking their own school record set in January (8:00.52) with a 7:59.93, good for 19th overall.

Capping off the weekend, after helping his teammates in their record-setting efforts, Oosting raced in the 2-mile individual championship, pushing the pace and setting his own indoor PR and school record with an 8:57.36, less than a half second behind winner Devin Hart ‘19 of Point Pleasant Boro, NJ and 2 seconds ahead of Florida’s The Bolles School’s Charles Hicks ‘19 in third. This 2nd place finish, Oosting’s fourth at Nationals in three years, also earned All-American status. Hart and Hicks will join Oosting as he runs for Stanford University in the fall.

The boys represented Arlington and the Middlesex League very well, and return home as All-Americans ready to rest up and begin preparations for the outdoor season!

Seeking Host Families 10-Day Nagaokakyo Sister City Student Exchange

We are happy to announce students from our sister city in Nagaokakyo, Japan will be Arlington 4/23-5/2/2019. The students are considered to be good will ambassadors that strengthen the friendship between our two communities. Arlington and Nagaokakyo signed a formal Sister City Agreement in 1984, after a more casual friendship between the two communities began in the 1970's. In 2005 we initiated the Student Exchange Program and in 2019 we celebrate our 15th year of successful hosting. In Nagaokakyo, 21 students are selected from a pool of more than 100 applicants each year and receive academic credit for their visit. In 2019, 21 students and 4 chaperones will be visiting Arlington along with the Mayor of Nagaokakyo and 5 associates. The students stay with volunteer host families in the community, visit schools and experience American culture. While in Arlington, the students will be visiting AHS, Ottoson Middle School and Brackett Elementary School. If you are interested in hosting a student, please contact Joanne Routenberg jroutenberg@yahoo.com 617-749-6654.

MCAS Trial Testing Schedule 3/12

Dear AHS Community,

I am writing to inform you that we are preparing for our 10th grade students to take the next generation computer-based version of the MCAS test this spring. Our district technology department has been working closely with teachers and administrators to plan for a smooth test administration. To that end, we have scheduled an infrastructure trial test date for Tuesday, March 12, 2019. Included in this letter is information for 10th grade students taking the MCAS as well as schedule changes for all other students.

On Tuesday, March 12, 2019 all 10th grade students will need to report to school at 8am to participate in the infrastructure trial. This trial will test our technology capabilities as well as give students an opportunity to practice the computer based MCAS. It is important that all students participate and learn how to use the software prior to the actual test date.

The schedule for March 12th has been altered to accommodate this trial. Please note that all 9th, 11th, and 12th grade students should report to school at 8:30am for their first period class. The MCAS trial will be over by 9:20am and Homeroom will be held for all students at 9:23am. The testing rooms for 10th grade students will be posted the day before and students should report directly to their test room by 8am.

If you have questions about the MCAS test or the trial date, please contact your child’s guidance counselor or dean.
