Welcome to Avon High School


Welcome Letter





Dear Avon High School Students and Families,

I hope you and your family are safe and in good health. 

I trust that you have read Dr. Carnemolla’s letter dated August 5, 2020 announcing that Avon Public Schools will open the 2020-2021 school year using a Hybrid Model. The high school is scheduled to return to full in school learning on October 13. The district has created two cohorts based on a student’s last name. Students whose last name begins with A - L are in Cohort 1; Students whose last name begins with M - Z are in Cohort 2. The Hybrid Model reduces the total number of students in the school and in classes.  

The Hybrid Model schedule is included below, as is AHS Master Hybrid Calendar.  I am also including the documents from my letter of July 30, 2020.  The arrival/departure and visitor procedures and the  lunch procedures do not change under the Hybrid Model for the cohorts while in school. The document discussing assigned classes vs. academic cohorts is updated based on the Hybrid Model. 

Student schedules are being adjusted to try to balance the class rosters with the cohorts under the Hybrid Model. The goal is to get close to 50% representation from each cohort in all classes to create as much spacing as possible.  Course periods may change, however, course levels will not. I do not have an exact date for the release of the final schedule at this time.  In advance, thank you for your patience.

Seniors with an “open” to start or end the day will still have the option for late arrival and early departure for those periods, as in past years.  The form for the senior option will be sent with the notification that schedules are finalized and available to view on PowerSchool. 

To reduce the number of students in the school and create increased spacing, we are exploring the possibility of offering underclassmen the same option described above for late arrival/early dismissal, for this school year only. If it is to happen, families will need to make the commitment for each day “in school.” Again, once schedules are finalized I will share our decision with you and send the necessary form.

In case we need to go to full remote learning for all students at some point in the school year, that schedule is included at the end of this document.  

As we get closer to the first day of school, we will send reminders about the schedule. The schedule will be posted in the daily bulletin for students to review. The daily bulletin is also posted on our web site.

I will continue to send you updates to any school procedures.  

Stay safe and be well.



Michael Renkawitz
