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.

Welcome new families! Parents/guardians of new students should register their students at their neighborhood school after August 17 when schools reopen. Please bring a copy of your child's state-issued birth certificate, proof of residency, immunizations and information regarding their previous school when you register.

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

Family Handbook:
The 2016-2017 Family Handbook will be sent to families in early August. This includes the district calendar, back to school activities for each school, district contact information, bus routes, free/reduced meal applications and our legal notices.
