California Association of Student Councils (CASC) Fall Advocacy Conference: CASC is a student-led, student-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization devoted to the development of leadership, advocacy, and life skills in youth. CASC conferences provide opportunities for students to make proposals to the California State Board of Education, California assembly, and senators from across the state which frequently results in the creation and institution of bills in the California legislature.

COVID-19:


-Thank you AR students for filling out the Covid-19 vaccine survey. The results have been very helpful and we had a 73% response rate!

  • 70% of AR students are vaccinated, 5.5% are partially vaccinated, and 9% of respondents plan on getting vaccinated within the next three months, putting us at 84% by next semester. An additional 12% of respondents answered "maybe" to whether or not they would get the vaccine in the next three months.

-Only 2 students may sit distanced per table in the SSC during lunch.


-Any unvaccinated students who are identified as close contacts in a Covid exposure may not participate in any extracurricular activities such as clubs or sports for the duration of your quarantine. (Decision upheld by FUHSD Board 9/8/21)


-Masks must be worn at all times on campus (this includes outside) by everyone regardless of vaccination status. Mask wearing will be enforced. 


-In PE only, students can choose whether or not to wear a mask while running laps. Mr. Van Dyke has final discretion on all masking parameters during higher intensity activities in PE.


-AR students who can log in to the CR App should finish the app health screening before they arrive for classes. First-years, non-CR students, and students who do not have a smartphone must find a health screener on campus to get a temperature check and a colored wristband before arriving at class. 


-White wristbands will be issued to vaccinated students (if they wish to attest vaccination status), and the following colors will convey successful health screening on the following days:

Monday - Blue

Tuesday - Orange

Wednesday - Red

Thursday - Yellow

Friday - Green


-Outside of school Covid exposures must be reported to Mr. King and students must stay home awaiting instruction from public health. In-school exposures will follow HCOE guidelines.
