Arcohe Families, We have been monitoring symptoms of staff and students who were on site through our last day of school and there have been no new reported cases of the coronavirus. Since the last time for the last reported case will have met the minimum requirement, the school will reopen for in-person learning on Monday, November 30th starting with the "A" cohort. We will see you all next week. Be well!
With the school closure, we will have to have families come to campus to pick up Grab and Go Meals for over break. If you are in need a meal, the cafeteria will have packages available at 1:30 on Wednesday and Thursday this in front of school.
Good afternoon Arcohe families, This is an announcement regarding school for the remainder of the week. We learned this morning we have a positive COVID-19 case on the middle school campus and a possible exposure of a staff member in the main office. Since these cases affect multiple segments and multiple cohorts, the district contacted the Sacramento Public Health Department and has decided it is in the best interest of all to close the physical campus for the remainder of the week and go back to the distance learning model. This means teachers will be contacting students through Google Meet and Google Classroom for the remainder of the week. Please check your child's Google Classroom account for more information. With school closed next week for Thanksgiving, we will have the necessary quarantine time for students to return to campus on Monday, November 30th. Students who have direct exposure to the confirmed case will be contacted directly by the main office to monitor symptoms, but we ask all families to monitor on their own over the next two weeks. If your child experiences COVID-related symptoms, please call the main office and leave a message. We would like to keep tabs on cases to make informed decisions about our next steps. Please make good choices regarding your health over this holiday break and come back well. Respectfully, Troy Miller
Just a reminder, school is out at 1:30 all week due to conferences.
Just as a reminder--there is no school tomorrow due to Veterans' Day. Thank you to all who have served our country!! We will back in session on Thursday with our "B" cohort. Be well!

Hi, We have another project starting for Arcohe School. The front garden bed needs to be rehabbed. I am bidding on 6 lots of concrete block and bricks stacked on pallets at a Galt area ranch on Jahant Rd. A few of these lots have as many as 5 partial or full pallets. I will have an exact count next Monday, but my estimate is no more than 20 pallets. I will know by Tuesday, March 17th at 1 pm, if I have won the auction. Meanwhile, I will need to arrange a pickup at the ranch location on Wednesday, March 18th, 9-4 pm. There will be a forklift at the ranch, but none at Arcohe. So, I would appreciate a truck(s) and/or trailer(s) and the use of a forklift at Arcohe. All pallets would be placed on the East campus, on the East end of the campus in proximity to raised beds adjacent to the football field. Please let me know if you can volunteer your time and/or your equipment. My phone number is: 209.744.6979. Thank you!
