District News & Announcements

In an effort to maintain a safe environment for all of our visitors attending Argenta-Oreana High School football games the following activities and items will be prohibited:


·         Footballs and all other athletic equipment that can be thrown. (Including but not limited to baseballs, softballs, soccer balls, and Frisbees)

·         Pickup games of football and all other games that include physical contact.


Prohibited items that are brought will be confiscated and may be picked up in the office on the next scheduled day of school.


Elementary school students should be accompanied by and supervised by an adult. Middle School and High School students are expected to watch the game.


** The practice field directly behind the press box and the varsity baseball field will be off limits. All students should be at the football field fence or in the home side bleachers.**

Prior to the 2015-2016 school year, school districts were prohibited from preannouncing early dismissals due to heat. The announcement had to occur the day of the early dismissal. This was not ideal as it could cause issues with day care and other logistics. Please be advised that the State Board of Education has removed this prohibition to preannounce early dismissals due to excessive heat. During periods of extreme heat, the superintendent and building administrators will conduct morning and afternoon classroom temperature checks, review the forecast, and will try to make calls on heat dismissals the day before they are needed. We hope early dismissals will not be necessary; however, we take student and staff safety very seriously and do not want to expose anyone to hours of excessively hot conditions that can occur in the classrooms in the afternoon. If an early dismissal is announced, the elementary school will dismiss at 12:45 p.m. The middle and high schools will dismiss at 1:00 p.m
