AVHS registration set

Arcadia Valley High School student registration days will provide the opportunity for students to have a smooth start to this school year.

This is different than the way the school has done it in the past. This will allow a student to have all registration requirements done before open house so on that night we can focus on meeting teachers and picking up Chromebooks.

The important next step in beginning the 2018-19 school year is to attend registration on the date for your grade level. This will be the only time for you to adjust your schedule this year.

We expect all students to attend to complete registration and verify your schedule. We would like parents to attend as well but the required forms were mailed home so that students can bring the forms signed by their parents and parents do not have to attend.
