APS Announces a New Revised Make-up Day PlanMarch 6, 2014
Because Arlington Public Schools has lost additional instructional time on March 3 and 4 due to inclement weather, in addition to the earlier time lost in January and February, the following is the updated make-up schedule. This revised plan replaces the make-up day plan originally announced on February 18, 2014. Please note that if there are no additional school closures due to inclement weather or other emergencies this year, this plan allows APS to maintain the Memorial Day Holiday and Spring Break. It also prevents APS from having to add days to the end of the school year.
