UPCOMING EVENTS

Welcome to AMHERST REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL

 

  • Ninth Grade and New Student Welcome Day:  All students new to ARHS are invited to join us for Open House on Thursday, August 21st.  Drop in any time  from 9am to 1pm.  See details about this event.

  • Summer Office Hours: During the summer, the ARHS main office will be open from 8am to 3pm (sometimes closed at noon for lunch).  All school offices will be closed on July 4.

  • Summer Reading: Students -- wondering what to read this summer? Consult the ARHS Summer Reading Guide ! Titles are linked to the public library catalog, so you can reserve your favorite title now. What better way to relax this summer than with a good book!

  • Faculty/Staff Commentary in Amherst Bulletin: To address the difficult events of the 2013-2014 school year at ARHS, a group of faculty and staff members met together and wrote a commentary in this week's Amherst Bulletin.

  • Free Walk-in Health Clinic at Amherst Survival Center: Mondays 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm and Thursdays 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm. See more information about the clinic.   

  • Incident Reporting: We have established an electronic form for anonymous reporting of any incident that potentially harms the community or members of the community.  The Deans of Students are the immediate recipients of information submitted by the form and have the responsibility to pursue leads and involve the Amherst Police Department, as necessary. To clarify, the deans will not know the identity of those who provide information via the electronic form.

    Reports can also be sent to reportit@arps.org.  Reports sent to this address are not anonymous.

  • Racist Graffiti Incident: See the March 20 letter from Principal Mark Jackson regarding the targeting of a teacher of color at ARHS. See also the information presented to faculty on March 21 about this incident and Mark Jackson's letter to the editor of the Daily Hampshire Gazette.

  • The school system has implemented a restriction on nuts and nut products. Find out more about this new Allergy Aware policy.

At the broadest level, the model shift distinguishes standard guidance services from crisis services. For the last four years, we have seen annual increases in the number harming ideations and actual instances of self-harming. A persistent challenge of the guidance department has been to address these instances of crisis while, at the same time, maintaining the full range of guidance services intended for the entire student body.
