Great Teaching. Great Learning. Every Student. Every Day.

School Status

  • VIRTUAL LEARNING FORMAT UPDATE: The school board voted at their January 12, 2021, meeting to have all ACPS students continue to remain in a fully-virtual learning format until the target positivity rate in the county is 5% or less and the target cases per 100,000 in the county is 15 cases or less for five consecutive days. The school board will further discuss return to school plans, the availability of adequate staffing, and county health metrics at their February 9th meeting, or sooner if necessary, and will provide additional guidance at that time.
