In response to the most current CDC recommendations, and in consideration of the health and safety of our community at large, all ACPA staff, students and visitors will be required to wear masks while in the building this fall.  Masks will be optional outdoors during school hours, including during lunch and recess.  ACPA administration will continue to pay close to attention to CDC guidance and will adjust this requirement accordingly.  In addition, all ACPA classrooms, offices and common areas are equipped with air purification devices.  There are hand sanitation devices throughout the building and we will continue with regular and increased surface cleaning of classrooms and common areas.

Send a copy of your vaccine card to or bring it to school on your next visit (first day of school or Orientation)
