BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION

School Supplies:
Arlington Public Schools recognizes that purchasing school supplies has been an increasing demand for our families and a financial hardship for some. Because we ask for community support for our schools through levies and other fundraising activities, the schools will now provide most of the needed school supplies (including supplies to complete class projects at home). 
Read what will and will not be covered.


Transportation:
Transportation routes are now available on the website. They will also be included in the Family Handbook being mailed out to families in August.

AHS FRESHMEN SCHEDULES

The challenges that occurred with student schedules last week were due to the increase of families coming to our district for the programs we offer. This caused a large, unexpected amount of additional freshmen enrollees at the end of the summer. With all of the new registrations, the administration is having to make changes in the master schedule, causing temporary gaps in student schedules. read more
