Greetings Laker Nation,
Summer is here! However, before vacation begins, students will bring the year to a conclusion by taking Final Exams. Finals begin on Monday, June 19th. Each Final constitutes 10% of the full year grade in each class. Please help us to keep our students striving for academic success as they complete these year-end assessments. An informational hand out containing a Final Exam Schedule and End-of-Year Expectations was provided via email. This handout, available on our site, was also emailed to you. Please review the information and contact the Main Office should you have any questions.
With summer...comes Summer Reading! All students are expected to complete Summer Reading. Summer Reading requirements are posted on the FLRSD website homepage under Quick Links. This year we are pleased to announce that the ARHS library will be open on the following Wednesdays, July 12, 19, 26, & August 9 , 16 from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. Students entering grades 9-12 can check-out books and participate in some special activities being offered on select dates. Look for a One Call notice soon with more details.
Attorney General Maura Healey launched an education campaign to help students and families in Massachusetts better understand financial aid packages offered by colleges. In particular, MA has a new hotline for students to call and online resources to help them better understand their financial award letters. Students and families with questions or concerns about financial aid award letters should call the Student Loan Assistance Unit’s hotline at 1-888-830-6277 or visit their website: www.mass.gov/ago/StudentAwardLetter. Here are links to helpful resources at FacebookandTwitter.
