Transportation Changes


If you need to make transportation changes for your child, a note must be sent that morning with your child, or faxed/emailed to the Front Office no later than 2:30. Our office gets EXTREMELY busy after 2:30, so we cannot guarantee changes if we are notified after then. Phone call changes cannot be accepted.

About the new School Websites

Dear Parents, Staff and Community,

Welcome to the new ACPS School Websites! Why the change you might ask? For our parents and guardians the plan is to make the school websites uniform and similar in layout. The thought behind this is if a parent has children in more than one school they can easily navigate across multiple sites when looking for the same information. It has been years since the launch of the old sites and it is time for a new look and feel.
