Important Reminders if You’re Visiting the School:

We work hard to make our school a welcoming place for our students as well as their families.  It is also important for us to follow the county’s safety plan for checking in.  This requires all visitors to log in to the security system. If you plan on entering the school for lunch, or any other reason be sure to bring your driver’s license.

It is ACPS County policy that all visitors register in the system and then log in using their ID any time they plan to enter the school.

You may also use an out of state driver’s license, DMV identification card or any other U.S. Government Issued ID.  If you do not have this identification, please bring in identification from another country, your work, or something similar, and the office staff will input your  information into the system.

Please know that your first visit will require a bit more time to check in so plan for that.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office at 434-973-8301.

We will also continue to take absence/tardy information over the phone, as we have in the past.

When you call or send an email, please include the following:

  • Student’s First and Last Name
  • Grade and Teacher’s Name

It is very important that we receive this information by 8:30 am the day your child will be late or absent.

If we don’t hear from you we will call to ensure that your child is with you and safe!

Finally, feel free to call or email the office in the evening if you know that your child will not be attending school the next day.
