What happens when my student is ill during school hours?
If students are ill during school hours they are asked to come to the Student Services office. Students may call home as needed. Students cannot be sent home without parent or guardian permission. Students who do not check out properly will be subject to disciplinary action. AMHS does not have a nurse on staff or a health room.
What is the Tardy Policy?
Students are expected to be on time, in their seats and ready for class to begin when the bell rings. A student is considered tardy when they arrive to class no more than 20 minutes late. A tardy during the students first period of the day is labeled as a T1.
A student arriving late or returning to campus, must sign in at Student Services.
T1 is only excused with a medical note. Each student is allowed 3 T1’s per semester to accommodate unexpected traffic delays, carpool issues, etc. T1’s beyond that point will be subject to discipline at the discretion of the Dean of Students.
What is the Dress Code?
It is the policy of AMHS to hold students to a dress code reflecting modesty and individual dignity. The intent of our dress code is to lend dignity to both the individual and the school in order to enhance the learning environment. A student in violation of the dress code as outlined below will be asked to change into appropriate attire and/or receive a detention. If a student is unable to change into clothing in congruence with the dress code, parents may be contacted and the student may be sent home to retrieve a change of clothing. Repeated violations of the dress code will result in progressive discipline at the discretion of the Dean of Students. If a student wears an outfit not covered in the guidelines below, the Dean of Students will have final say on its appropriateness. AMHS relies on, and expects, parental support in enforcing the dress code. We are grateful for all parental effort and contributions in this regard.
GUIDELINES FOR GENERAL DRESS CODE
Students must adhere to the general dress code as outlined below. The clothing on the list below is allowed, and any item not listed is not allowed.
Student dress and grooming may not:
- Disrupt, interfere with, disturb, or detract from school activities.
- Create a hazard to the student’s safety or to the safety of others. For Example, students are required to wear appropriate footwear at all times.
- Promote by printed word or symbol the use of illegal substances or other prohibited activities, including but not limited to intimidation, harassment, sexual innuendo, vulgarity, and obscenities.
- If School officials reasonably believe a student dress or grooming is objectionable under these provisions, the administration will ask the student to make appropriate changes. If the student refuses, the student is subject to corrective action.
The administration will determine certain days to be “Spirit Days.” These days are to increase school spirit, and to celebrate various aspects of the AMHS community. Students are encouraged to dress for the theme designated for that Spirit Day. On this day, students should wear clothing that aligns with the standard dress code.
In all cases, the underlying guideline of modesty and good taste must be maintained. To participate, students must dress within the theme established, or will be considered to be in violation of dress code.
LITURGY DRESS / PROFESSIONAL DRESS (Liturgy Days)
Liturgy is an opportunity for the AMHS family to gather in celebration of our best example of servant leadership. As such, there is an expectation that students will dress to the occasion. Students should arrive at school already dressed for the liturgy, and remain in Liturgy/Professional Dress for the entire day. The AMHS Liturgy/Professional Dress policy is as follows:
Dress slacks, tucked in dress shirt, and tie. A dress sweater may be worn on top.
Dress slacks or a loose fitting dress/skirt of sufficient length and blouse/top (must follow length requirements that reflect modesty and good taste). No jean skirts.
