AHS REGISTRATION DAYS

AHS Registration Days is right around the corner, and due to the continued school closures, registration is going to look somewhat different this year. Some of the registration process has been moved to an online format, while other essential steps will still occur on campus.  The on-campus portion of registration will be on the following days:

Seniors:  Wednesday, August 5th 8am-3pm   

Juniors: Thursday, August 6th 8am-3pm

Sophomores: Friday, August 7th 8am-3pm

Freshman: Monday, August 10th 8am-3pm

Make-Up Day: Tuesday, August 11th 8am-12pm

STEP 1: 

To begin the registration process we ask that you start by visiting the following link to make all necessary purchases for the 2020-2021 school year.  PurplePass.com/arcadiahigh 

STEP 2: 

Please visit the google form at the following link, fill out the required information, and select an appointment time for your on-campus portion of the registration process.https://tinyurl.com/y6xm5ekd

STEP 3: 

Most importantly, you will be receiving a PIN number via US Mail next week.  Please use this pin number and fill out the required Arcadia Unified School District Annual Notification To Parents (ANTP) form.

THIS FORM MUST BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO ATTENDING THE ON-SITE PORTION OF REGISTRATION.

Once this form is complete you will receive a confirmation email from AHS confirming your appointment time (this email will not be sent instantly, please provide time to receive the confirmation).  That email will also include a PDF containing your student number and name.  Please print the PDF and bring it to your appointment time.  

The on campus portion of registration will include taking your photograph, receiving your class list, and receiving your textbooks.  Please report directly to the attendance window in the Administration Building at your specific appointment time.   

Since many of our support organizations will not be able to be on campus this year during registration, we will be setting up a website with important information from these organizations.  Be on the lookout for an email with a link to this site.

  • Safety is our highest concern during the on-site portion of registration.  We have adjusted the schedule to ensure social distancing during the process.  Please help us stay safe. Masks and social distancing are required at all times.

COLLEGE BOARD NOTICE FOR AP TEST TAKERS

The College Board


Students who began an AP Exam either this week or last week but didn’t successfully submit their answer(s) should request a makeup by May 24 3pm. We are reopening makeup requests for ANY AP STUDENT who tested and didn't successfully submit answers, even if your 48 hour window has passed.

Reasons to request an AP Exam makeup could include:
🔹 Internet or power went out
🔹 Tech or submission issue
🔹 You're not sure if you uploaded the correct document
🔹 You copy/pasted your response in your email submission instead of attaching your files

Students will receive makeup approval for these issues, or similar ones: sickness; significant interruptions from family members; battery failures; power outages; technical disruptions. Note: running out of time to submit a response is not a valid reason to request a makeup.

If you didn't take your AP Exam this week or last week, and you never clicked on your e-ticket, you do NOT need to request a makeup. Any registered student who didn't open/take their May exam will automatically receive an e-ticket for the June makeup exam.
