I know it's improper to skip observations (and likely mucks about the

missing about 21 observations in a data set of nearly 3000 and none of them
are together. Is there any way to get the arch command to just skip the
observations and continue on with the regression?
Proviso: statistically speaking, this is something that shouldn't be done
(but people do it anyway).
You can save a version of your dataset purged of missing values by
setobs 1 1 --special
and you should be ok.
