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.

ACPA is asking that if you are vaccinated, to please share a copy of your vaccine card as required annual paperwork this year.  We are collecting this information in order to keep a count of the percentage of our population that is vaccinated to inform future decision making in regards to masks and other precautions.  We encourage eligible staff and students to get vaccinated as a further precaution to preventing the spread of COVID-19.

You can get a vaccine at most local pharmacies, through Franklin County Public Health ( or Columbus Public Health ( who is offering $100 in “vax cash” to anyone receiving their first dose through Aug. 16.

Please contact Ms. Bostelman ( if you have any questions during your preparation for the next school year!
