Term 1 Report Cards

Report Cards will be published in ASPEN at the end of the day on Friday. To access, you will need to log in to your ASPEN account. They will be available to view for two weeks. Please reach out if you have any trouble with this.


If you have any questions about the content of the report card, please reach out directly to your child's teacher.

Updating Contact Information in ASPEN

While you are in ASPEN looking at your child's progress - we ask that you update your contact information to make sure that your most recent mobile phone number is listed.


Why do you need to do this?

APS is currently updating the mobile phone numbers on record so that we can send school cancellations and other urgent notices via text message.


How do you do this?

We ask that you update your contact information in Aspen using the workflow directions listed here: https://5il.co/1ldxt If you have multiple students, please complete the workflow for each one. Families who wish to have their child(ren) receive text messaging from the district/school, should provide student cell phone number(s) through this workflow as well.

Grade 2 Swimming Program

Attleboro Public Schools is so excited to be partnering with the Attleboro YMCA to be able to offer swim lessons to all grade 2 students in Attleboro. The program will run for 8 weeks and will take place during the school day. Students will be bussed to and from the Y. Studley is scheduled for January - March.


We will be having an informational session on December 14th to share more detailed information with families and answer questions. The session will be virtual in order to reach more families. A link will be sent closer to the night.

Attendance

As we close out term 1, we will be looking at our attendance data more closely as it is a goal on our School Improvement Plan. As you know, attendance is an important factor in children's success. Research supports that student attendance has a direct correlation to student achievement and graduation rates.


Many of you are excellent at communicating the reasons why your children are absent, and we are very appreciative of that. THANK YOU! It is extremely helpful to keep everyone on the same page. We recognize and acknowledge that there are REAL reasons why students are absent, and we appreciate you for keeping them home when they are ill. However, these are still days out of school and days accumulate over time. Part of our responsibility, at the school level, is to inform families when students reach a certain number of days out of school - regardless of reasons. We are in the process of preparing this data for you. Our first step is to inform families and support in any way that is needed.
