It is not safe to drop children off more than 15 minutes before school or to leave them more than 15 minutes after the school day ends.
Parents must not leave their children on a school campus longer than fifteen (15) minutes either before or after the school day.
School grounds are not supervised except during the school day. If extenuating circumstances prevent a family from picking up a student on time, the school must be notified within fifteen minutes of the end of the school day.
If students are repeatedly left on campus outside of the school day hours, an administrator will attempt to contact the family to discuss and resolve the problem. If the problem continues, the student may be considered abandoned and the police will be notified. Such children may be subject to transportation to a designated state shelter.
APS schools will do their best to abide by parenting plans provided to them but are not responsible to enforce specific pick-up days.
We are here to help your child learn and grow, and that process includes you! Parents are a child's first and most important teachers. Parent involvement is closely linked to academic achievement and self-confidence.
If you wish to volunteer with us, please set up a time with our volunteer coordinator, Corinne Martinez, who can guide you through the process and get you signed up. Teachers need help with making copies, coordinating and preparing materials, or just an extra hand in the classroom. We welcome your participation, your input, and your ideas.
