Inclement weather

 

Changes to school schedules caused by inclement weather or other emergency conditions are announced through the Connect-ED automated telephone notification system, posted on the school system’s website (www.aacps.org) and broadcast on major area radio and television stations. If there is a late opening the week of January 19-22, schools will close at regular hours instead of two-hour early dismissal. Please do not call your child’s school or central office to find out about closings and other emergency-related schedule changes. As a reminder, drop off in the morning begins at 9:00 am. Our students are supervised beginning at 9:00 a.m. when the front doors open. Please dress your child appropriately for the cold weather. Students will go outside for recess when the temperature reaches 32° and above.

 

NEW: Chaperones background checks - Online only

 

Starting this month, background investigations application must be submitted online and a minimum of three weeks prior to the event. Applicants are required to review and acknowledge the AACPS screening criteria for chaperone and volunteer background investigations before applying for a background check.
