Late Bus Schedule--stay after for clubs or to get extra help from a teacher
Amherst Regional High School operates on a trimester schedule. There are five class periods in a day. Each class meets every day, for an hour or for a ninety-minute long period. The day of the week determines which class will meet for the long period. See class meeting times.
The first lunch period begins at 10:00 am each day, unless a special schedule is in effect. Lunch periods are 30 minutes long, and are assigned to classes by department. See lunch assignments.
LATE ARRIVAL DAYS
Once a month, the school day for students begins at 10:00 am instead of 7:45 am, to allow time for teachers to work on curriculum and school-wide issues. On these Late Arrival days, we follow a special schedule.
In the event of inclement weather, the opening of school may be delayed by one hour or two hours. On those days, all five classes meet for a shortened period of time, according to this special schedule.
At several times during the spring, students in certain grades take the MCAS (Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System) test in several different subject areas. Each test spans several days. During that week, all students will follow a special schedule.
Exams occur during the last week of each trimester. During the exam period, we follow a special schedule.
