Health & Safety
Covid Protocols continue to change as our community needs change. Please refer to the tool kits below to find the latest information and explanations of safety protocols. Our district uses these tool kits to help develop safety protocols for our schools. (Please remember that all the board meeting videos are available on our district website.)
Students should stay home, even with a negative test result, if they have vomiting or diarrhea or a fever. They may return with a negative test result and 24 hours after no longer vomiting, diarrhea or fever without the aid of medication.
**Preschool guidelines are different than school aged guidelines, including symptoms. Please see the symptom list below.
Help us keep it safe by:
- washing or sanitizing your child's backpack periodically
- keeping coats and sweaters clean
- washing or wiping down any items your child brings to school (i.e. water bottles)
Thank you for your help with keeping it safe at our school.
Thank you, PTC, for the Battle of the Books Library!

We need GREAT people!
Asheville City Schools has several instructional assistant vacancies at the elementary level for the 2021-2022 school year. Visit https://www.applitrack.com/asheville/onlineapp/default.aspx for details.
These positions are full time positions with benefits (i.e. state retirement, sick days, paid time off, health insurance, and access to supplemental insurance). Part time positions have a greater per hour rate of pay. The best part is you have the opportunity to have a positive impact on children every day.
Our list is shrinking, but we are still in need of the following positions:
- academic support assistants
- instructional assistants
Many schools across our district are struggling with finding new staff to fill positions and we are no exception. Until those positions are filled, please allow grace to our staff as we all fill in to make sure that everything is taken care of for our students. Thank you!
Want To Be More Involved at APS?
Want to join us? Email Tima Williams at email@example.com.
Be sure to link your card to our school so that we can reap the benefits. Our school code is 10753. Thanks!
