Face coverings will be required INSIDE but no longer OUTSIDE. Your child can still wear a mask outside if he/she/they wish(es).

Review of Enrollment Information and Links to Forms:
Current Kindergarten - 4th Grade School Selection Form
If your child is a current Asheville Primary Kindergarten - 4th Grader, please know that your family has the opportunity to complete your child’s School Selection Form now - Friday, February 25th. This form is how we will learn more about your school preference, as families will rank their school choices 1st through 5th for 2022-2023.
Additionally, please know the February 25th deadline will allow the enrollment team to assess the numbers and go before the Board of Education. At this time, our recommendation will be to give priority placement to APS students at the school of their choice before placing other students.
Current Pre-K School Selection
Current Asheville Primary Pre-K students will complete their applications for the 2022 - 2023 school year during the district’s regular open enrollment window. This year, open enrollment begins on February 7th and ends on March 14th. Additional information can be found here.
To support your family’s selection process, videos that showcase each of our 2022 - 2023 elementary schools and highlight their unique magnet themes can be found here.
Congratulations to our friends at Lucy S. Herring Preschool
