10 Is it time to eat yet? Parents have or will receive free and reduced lunch forms and an E-Rate Survey. They MUST BE returned. Parents will be notified of status.

11 Transportation Your child’s safety is our primary concern. PICK UP STUDENTS – We have 2 pick-up/drop off locations. First/Second in front and Kindergarten/Pre-Kindergarten in the back. You will receive two car tags per child and family to hang on your vehicle mirror. We will look for the car tag when you come through the pick-up line. If you forget the tag, please park in the parking lot, walk across on the crosswalk, and pick your child up from the teacher. If a car tag is lost, they will cost $2.00 for a new one. Our release time at ACPS is 2:20PM.

12 Transportation If your child is picked up by a different person than you, please make sure that person has the car tag. If not, the person will have to park and come inside. You must have a note sent to school or the person must be on the green card that is in your student packet. The note must include the date, person’s name, your signature, and a number where you can be called to verify the information. The person will need to have his/her driver’s license for verification as well. No child can be signed out past 2:00 PM. Please do not call at the last minute to change your child’s transportation.

13 Reminder! Bus Changes!!! Any bus changes for a student must be written on a note with the information listed below:. Date. Child’s name and teacher. Address to where the child is going.
