ARA Attendance Procedure

ARA students and families - We have made a slight change to our ARA attendance procedure.  You may have a new advisory teacher where you will take attendance.  In most cases, this teacher is one of your classroom teachers, which will make contacting them easier for families.  This change will take effect for the week of November 30.  Please contact your teacher or administrator with any questions or concerns.

New Statewide Measures to Contain the Spread of COVID-19

On Friday, November 13, 2020 Governor Ralph S. Northam announced new statewide measures to contain the spread of COVID-19. 

One of these measures is to limit gatherings to 25 people. The social gathering limit does not apply to instructional education settings, including classrooms, buses, cafeteria, and recess. Therefore, ACPS’ health mitigation plan will not change at this time. 

We are still awaiting guidance from the VHSL on extracurricular activities. ACPS will continue to keep families informed as we receive information.
