Elementary School Information Sessions

All Arlington elementary schools schedule school information sessions to:Principal with families

  • Enable parents and guardians to visit the schools, meet the principals, tour the buildings, see the schools “in action” and get a general sense of the personalities of each of the schools.
  • Information sessions are encouraged for parents or guardians who are considering a transfer to an elementary school other than their neighborhood school and for those who are considering applying to countywide schools.
  • You may also visit individual school websites for any additional dates/events offered.
