Back to School Night

Dear ARL Students & Families,

As a reminder, ARL's Back-to-School Night will be held on Wednesday, September 9, 2020, beginning at 6:30 p.m. We are looking forward to meeting virtually with our students and parents. 

Please note that ARL Academy teachers will be sending Virtual Google Meet links to students & parents to join their virtual Back-to-School Night visitations through Canvas. Parents and students may join their visitation at the designated time listed below: Juniors & Parents of Juniors will meet with their teachers at 6:30-6:50 p.m. Seniors and Parents of Seniors will meet with their teachers at 6:55-7:15 p.m., and Sophomores in the Early College Cyber Security Academy will meet with their teacher at 7:20-7:40 p.m. Sessions will last @ 20 minutes.

Additionally, we are excited to start our virtual school semester next Tuesday, September 8th. Teachers will provide students with class and log-in details through Canvas. 

Finally, this year, many of the ARL Academy textbooks will be available on-line as e-texts. Teachers will inform their students how to access these resources.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or support you may need. 

REMEMBER: Parents need to access the classes by using the student login credentials. The best way to ensure you are accessing using the student hcpss.inst email address is to go to to launch Meet.  You will not be able to access these codes or the Meets themselves unless your student logs in to with their HCPSS email address. Without exception, this has been the issue for every person who had trouble accessing the list. So, if you get a message saying you don't have permission, close your browser, reopen it, go to and try again.
