Thanksgiving Week Schedule Change

The Preschool Program appreciates the opportunity to serve you and your family. The first 9 weeks of this school year have been successful thanks to our staff and the support from families. Children have been gaining new skills and knowledge daily and show their excitement with us all.

For the week of November 23, Asheville City Schools has decided to close all physical locations (i.e. K-12 schools, ACS Preschool Program, ACS Learning PODS, and central services). Staff are being asked to work remotely on Monday, November 23 and Tuesday, November 24. Virtual instruction and activities will be provided for families. Your child's teacher will give you details regarding virtual instruction soon.

We want to communicate this closure to you now to give you time to seek alternative child care if needed. Your billing account will be credited for these two unplanned days per district guidance.

Asheville City Schools will resume our regular virtual schedule on Monday, November 30.

Dressing in Layers

Licensing requirements in our preschool rooms requires that we keep the windows open for fresh air. Please feel free to dress your child in layers as the temperature drops.

Ready Rosie

You should have received an invite to Ready Rosie. Ready Rosie is a tool that can help families create meaningful home-learning environments. Ready Rosie sends out short videos to give families activities that can be done at home or in your community.
