Rooms Communication App

You may notice that an additional button, called Rooms, will be visible at the bottom right of our Attleboro Public Schools mobile app. This button is part of our integrated system of communication and will allow for your child’s teachers/coaches/and other staff to share detailed information (assignments, special events, practice schedules, etc.). More information is forthcoming.

In addition to downloading the app, guardians will need to set up their accounts. This can be done by going to the link contained in the email sent to all guardians yesterday (and following the directions)

If you haven’t already done so, please download the APS app designed for mobile devices.

Beginning November 7th, we will be collecting food items for the Annual Attleboro Public Schools Food Drive. The agency assigned to us this year is the Second Congregational Church and the pickup of the food will be Friday, December 2, 2022.

Please send items in with your children and we will place them in our collection area. We appreciate your generosity in helping others in need.
