  • DISTANCE LEARNING PACKETS - In an effort to ensure quality instruction continues through our distance learning format, we have printed packets for our students. The first set of Distance Learning Packets were distributed and available at schools on Thursday, March 19th. Parents/students have the option to download these packets online at www.acpsd.net through this Distance Learning Link. If parents/students choose to download packets at home, please make sure your child’s teacher(s) is notified. Teachers are keeping track to help ensure all students receive their necessary materials.

    Throughout this school closure, teachers will be available during set office hours of 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. via web conferencing or by phone to assist with questions regarding how to access or complete content. If you or your student has any questions during non-office hours, please do not hesitate to contact the school directly.

    Thank you for joining us in a commitment to ensure that students continue to receive quality instruction and support regardless of school closures. Additional information is forthcoming this week on packet submission and new packet distribution.

  • NUTRITIONAL SERVICES UPDATE FOR MARCH 30-APRIL 3 (INCLUDING SPRING BREAK)Aiken County Public Schools has been granted a waiver to distribute multiple days of meals to students. We are grateful to our dedicated team and know that delivering multiple days of meals at once will allow for a much-needed break for employees.

Tomorrow’s distribution will cover student meals through Thursday morning’s breakfast. There will be no food distribution on Wednesday, April 1 as our staff will be preparing meals for the remainder of the week and Spring Break. On Thursday, April 2, two breakfast and two lunch meals will be available for pick up at all schools and will be delivered along regular bus routes.

    On Friday, April 3, meals for students for the week of Spring Break will be available at central grab-and-go school site locations between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. No bus deliveries will be made. Families wanting student meals during the Spring Break holiday are urged to pick up those meals on Friday between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. at one of the following locations: Aiken High School, Kennedy Middle School, North Augusta High School, Midland Valley High School, Graniteville Elementary School, AL Corbett Middle School, Ridge Spring-Monetta High School, or Silver Bluff High School.

    As with all food distribution during this closure, the child or children should be present.

  • NOT GETTING ACPSD'S PHONE CALLS ? - Our calling system pulls information directly from PowerSchool, our student information system from student registration. If you are not getting phone calls, please first call the opt-out hotline at (855) 502-7867 from the phone you should be getting calls from. It is an automated system and will take less than two minutes to opt back in. Some families accidentally opt out. And, if you switched phone carriers, but kept the same number, a number of carriers automatically opt you out from receiving automated calls. If you are not able to opt back in by calling the number above, please contact the school to be sure that they have a working phone number for your family.

  • ACPSD PHONE MESSAGES REPEATING? - Several parents/guardians have made us aware that our phone messages repeat after five seconds. The automated calling system is prompted to restart if a sound is made on the receiver's line (this allows for messaging to be delivered to answering machines). Parents/guardians experiencing this issue are encouraged to mute their phone when they receive an automated call from our District. This should eliminate background noise/sound and correct the issue.

  • NOVEL CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION - Understanding that parents/guardians, teachers, and staff have concerns about the widely-publicized new or “novel” coronavirus, COVID-19, and how this new family of viruses could impact our community and public schools, our district administration wants to ensure you are made aware of preventative efforts and procedures in place related to this public health concern.

Our Flags Today

  • Our flags fly at half-staff upon the death of principal figures as a mark of respect for their memory as ordered by the President and/or Governor. Click here for more information on our flag status today. In many instances, students are responsible for participating in or conducting flag-related exercises. While a great responsibility and honor for our students, we believe that it also helps build a sense of patriotism and civic pride.
