Arlington Public Schools uses a variety of methods to communicate with families and the community.
APS School Talk is a messaging system comprising email, voicemail and texts. Families are automatically signed up for School Talk when their student is enrolled in APS.
APS School Talk is used to communicate up-to-the minute news and emergency situations, including school closings or delays, along with news from specific schools.
Each school has its own website and online calendar. Schools keep in touch with families through APS School Talk, and many reach out through PTA channels and the APS Peachjar electronic flyer service as well.
