Hello Asa Packer Families

Welcome to another school year!

We are so excited to start another year. After a year of challenges I am optimistic that those challenges only made us stronger. We, at Asa Packer, are so excited to have our students back with us in the classroom. We look forward to working with you as we begin our new year. I know we will make some great Puma Pride memories together! Please see below for some important information.

Assignments/Class Lists

Teacher assignments for the 2021-22 school year were mailed home and should be arriving shortly. Class lists will not be posted at the building.

Please remember that teacher requests are not accepted. We have procedures in place for classroom assignments. All placements are also final.

Contact Information

If you moved over the summer, please submit updated contact information to the Main Office. This will allow mailings to be sent to the correct address. Verification of residency will be needed to update an address in the district system.


Any questions pertaining to transportation should be directed to that particular office. Information regarding district transportation for the 2021-2022 school year will be mailed to your home directly from the Transportation Office. The Transportation Department can be reached at 610-861-0360.
