March 2022

Dear Arlee Parents and Guardians - 

Spring is almost here. We will have the first spring practices start on March 14th. If your child does not have their physical in and they want to participate in spring sports, please submit it as soon as possible. 

Arlee JH/HS will have its next Golden Opportunity Day (GO Day) on Thursday, March 31st. Any student that has a D or F (less than 70%) in any class, WILL be required to attend school on GO Day.  If a student does not have any D’s or F’s, (All grades C or higher) then that student WILL NOT be required to attend school on GO Day, but is welcome to do so if they choose. Reports will be hand delivered to students two days before the GO Day.  The GO day will not hurt any students' perfect attendance.  As a reminder, there are only 2 GO Days left. Those dates are below.
