Three AI Days Set for GHS

Two Track Meets Impact Schedule

The final break of the semester has come to a close, and GHS students are entering the last stretch between now and the end of the school year. With only one scheduled day off at the end of April, these few weeks are bound to be long for students. However, due to activities and other circumstances, three AI days have been arranged.

“We never have any days off between the end of spring break and the end of the year,” junior Mackenzie Almquist said. “So with finals and everything, it gets super stressful and if you get behind it’s hard to catch up.”

AI days are days set up for students who are behind on work and need to get caught up. They grant the students who have no late or missing work the day off of school, while giving the rest an opportunity to have one-on-one time with teachers as well as a chance to complete detention hours. The stats collected from past AI days prove they do an excellent job of reducing the number of missing assignments. 

The first scheduled AI day is April 9. Freshmen and seniors have the entire day off if they have no missing work. However, sophomores and juniors are required to attend for testing in the morning. Sophomores will take the PreACT and juniors will take the ACT. After the testing is complete, the second half of the day is AI and students with no missing work are allowed to leave. 

The next AI day is April 25, and it is a half day due to the Knights of Columbus track meet. All students who do not owe any work or detention hours will be dismissed at 11:15 a.m. However, there will be no bus service until the regular 3:20 p.m. route, so any students without alternative transportation are welcome to remain at the school until the bus service begins. The following day, April 26, is a complete day off, so there will be no school for students regardless of detention hours or missing work. 

The final AI day is May 7 due to GHS hosting a district track meet. It is a full AI day and buses will run as normally scheduled. Any student who owes missing work or detention hours and does not attend the scheduled days may be considered unexcused and will be subject to consequences.
