In an effort to return our elementary students home before conditions become unsafe, APS will dismiss early today, Tuesday, March 14, 2023. The early dismissal times are as follows: High School: 10:50 AM Middle School: 11:30 AM Elementary School: 12:25 PM The Early Learning Center will be closed - no AM or PM preschool. The ABACUS program will close two hours after dismissal.
We are closely monitoring the weather for tomorrow, March 14, 2023 and remain committed to delivering a full day of school as scheduled. However, the forecasted switch from rain to snow at midday presents a notable concern. Please be ready in case the timeline accelerates or conditions worsen and we need to call an early dismissal.

Temperatures are anticipated to be significantly lower than we have enjoyed thus far this winter, and we would like to remind everyone to dress appropriately and suggest layering clothes if possible. Schools will begin and end at their regular times, and we will be opening buildings early, so that students can enter as they arrive.
Due to the inclement weather forecasted for this evening, we are postponing Blue Pride Night. We are tentatively planning to reschedule the event for Wednesday, February 8.
Due to the impending forecast the District is canceling all evening activities.

Those attending are encouraged to park in the rear of the building and enter through the cafeteria doors, which are closest to the auditorium.
