MySchoolBucks: Good nutrition is critical for student success. The Food Services menus are all online and you can set up an online payment account through MySchoolBucks for each student. We encourage you to plan for this, especially breakfast, so your child has a nutritious meal and is ready to learn every day.

APS App: Download the free APS mobile app for smartphones and mobile devices. The app is customizable to your school and preferences, and will provide you with a portable link to news, calendars, sports scores and school directories. It will also give you easy access to APS services like APS websites, school menus, MySchoolBucks, and the Extended Day Portal. To download the APS App, just visit your App store and search for “Arlington Public Schools.” We know our families are very busy, and we hope this tool will provide families with the ability to stay connected.

Join the PTA: Family engagement is critical to student success, and our PTA plays a critical role in supporting our students and our instructional programs. It’s also a great network of parents and teachers for your school family. Please consider joining the PTA this year.
