Pick-Up Schedule

Please strictly follow the release times given for your grade-level:
2:55 pm           K-2 (without siblings)
3:15 pm           3-5 (and siblings from K-2)

  • Do not enter the car line early for 2nd pick-up; you will be asked to circle.
  • Plan to come later (after 3:20 pm) rather than earlier; this will help with the congestion.
  • ACS Policy on Returning to Classroom for Forgotten Items
    Please note that the school does not allow for students to reenter the school after they have been picked up by their authorized adult to retrieve forgotten books, lunch boxes, etc. This policy is in place for the safety of students and also to increase the virtue of responsibility in our students. Teachers work diligently during pack up to assist students in recording assignments and gathering needed materials to complete their homework. Students and/or parents are not allowed to be in classrooms without a teacher present at any time. Most afternoons, our teachers are in meetings or preparing materials in other parts of the campus so there is no supervision should a student return. Feel free to utilize the Family Directory to contact other parents in your class to get homework details, or reach out on the PSO Facebook group!
