Welcome to Alliance High School, home of the Aviators! I hope everyone had a great summer and is excited to start school. We all recognize that we are living in a historic time and school will be different this year. In this new and ever-changing environment, we are committed to the following priorities:
The health and safety of our students and staff members
Building and maintaining positive relationships with students and families
Improving student achievement
Communicating with families on a regular basis
The first day of school is August 25th (B-Day). Students will enter the cafeteria at 7:10 am for breakfast, or they can come into the lobby at 7:35 am and take a grab-and-go breakfast to their 1st period class which starts at 7:48 am. The high school staff has worked hard this summer to make the 2020-21 school year another great year!
The Aviator staff are committed to providing and delivering an exceptional educational experience for all students. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of getting involved in school by joining a club or an activity, or becoming part of an athletic team or the performing arts. AHS has a wealth of choices that provide every student the opportunity to be involved and make their high school experience successful and memorable.
I would like to extend a special welcome to the Class of 2024, our newest freshman class. This class comes to AHS with an outstanding reputation, and I am really excited to have you at the high school. Freshman Orientation for students choosing the in-person option will be held at AHS on August 24th from 8:00-11:00 am for A-Day (A-K) students and noon-3:00 pm for B-Day (L-Z) students. The parent meeting will be held virtually that evening for freshmen parents. Please see the links on the high school website and high school/district social media. The link will go live at 6:00 pm.
