Superintendent's Message: How we will handle inclement weather

The letter reviews the number of snow days we have built into the schedule, discusses the “weather contingency” dates we identified on the calendar, and takes on the tough question of what could happen in a worst case scenario should we need to recapture even more time. A copy will be sent to the email address on file for your family and a voicemail message will alert you to it's arrival (11/26/2014).

Welcome to Appoquinimink High School, home of the Jaguars!

I am very excited about the upcoming year. It is the sixth anniversary for our school (which opened in 2008) and also marks my sixth year as an administrator at AHS.

During that time, we’ve grown from a community of 1,050 learners to nearly 1,600. We have experienced success in the classroom and earned recognition in the arts, sports and numerous co-curricular organizations. Twice, we have been selected by the College Board for the National AP Honor Roll (2012, 2014), and this year we were named one of the nation’s top high schools by U.S. News & World Report.

Achievement, Honor and Service are the mission of AHS and we attempt to promote this every day in every way. I am looking forward to continuous advancement of this mission with the AHS students, staff, parents and community.

Please look forward to be on the lookout for our “Welcome Back” newsletter at the beginning of August. It will contain important information to help with the transition back to school.

In the meantime, please have a safe and relaxing summer.

Keisha Brinkley
