Badger Blast: February 11 - 16
It's a short week for students this week combined with a long weekend!
No school on Thursday, Friday or Monday (as noted in above image). We hope that you will take time to schedule time to visit with your child/children's teachers Thursday afternoon or evening.
Also, it's not a bad time to take advantage of the time to help us combat the flu virus that's in the region and clean any of the school supplies, backpacks, etc., that your child might bring home on a regular basis. Enjoy the long weekend and we hope that those who have been hit by bugs and viruses can use the few days to get healthy!

SCHOOL LUNCH MENUS ON APP
For those parents who use the app to check school lunch menus, a change was made before Thanksgiving Break and menus are again available on each school's portion of the app. For some reason, the menus had just been populated to the APSD section of the app. From now on, you should be able to locate the school lunch menus on your respective school's page on the app. Normal procedure is for menus to be uploaded for the entire month at the beginning of the month.
APSD Utilizing AMI Days Again in 2018-19; PLEASE Update Contact Info. at Respective Campuses If You've Changed Numbers
