Directed Study & Electronic Devices
The use of walkemen, IPods and MP3 players is permitted during
directed studies. However, their use is prohibited in the library. They
are prohibited in any other room that you may go to during your study
hall period. The volume of the headphones must be kept at a level so
that persons in the proximity cannot hear any sound. A set of headphones
can be used by only one person. The exchange of CDs, I-Pods or MP3
players with another student is prohibited. Only the student who owns
the equipment may use it during the directed study.
Consequences for failure to comply with these provisions can be found in section 23c of the discipline code.
Prior permission from the nurse and the principal are required of students using the elevator.
Parking on School Grounds
Parking for students will be limited to the number of spaces
available. All vehicles parked on school grounds must have a parking
permit clearly displayed. Parking permits cost $75.00 per year and are
not transferable. Seniors will be given priority status, followed by
juniors whose academic programs include courses taken at area colleges
and internships that occur during the school day. Consideration for the
issuance of parking permits will be given to students who are directly
involved in after-school home care, responsible for supporting their
family through a job, living independently and self-supportive, and
students participating in the school choice program.
Vehicles that do not display a valid ARHS parking permit are subject
to towing without warning. Vehicles parked in unauthorized areas that
inhibit access to the building for fire and other emergency situations
will be towed.

his or her own, outside of the home of his or her parent or guardian,
then he or she can exercise all the rights of a parent or guardian. This
includes signing absence, tardy and dismissal notes and providing
permission to attend field trips or other school-sponsored events.
If a student is 18 and still living with his or her parent or
guardian, only the parent or guardian is authorized to excuse absences
and tardiness, request early dismissals and provide permission to attend
field trips or other school-sponsored events.

Students should not come to school with valuable jewelry, electronic
equipment, large sums of money, or credit cards in their possession.

those with locks attached. The school cannot assume responsibility for
lost or stolen items. Students who lose valuable property in school
should file a theft report in the Deans Office.
