PTO Meeting – Monday, December 9 @ 6:30 pm

Join us at the next PTO Meeting on Monday, December 9th!

The meeting is held in the Media Center at 6:30 pm.

ALL parents and guardians of King students are welcome to attend. Learn about the PTO and see what opportunities are available.  Meet other parents and get involved! PTO meetings typically last one hour.

As always, and particularly in light of the the updated AAPS building security policy, we will not permit children to be unattended in the building during PTO meetings. PTO covers the cost of King Care for your school aged kids during our meetings, and it is our policy that all kids in the school building during PTO meetings attend King Care. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we comply with the District’s policies for the safety of all students during PTO meetings and PTO-sponsored events.

Drop Off and Pick Up at King: An Essential Guide

Check out our  Drop-off and Pick-up Guide!!!

Check out these fliers to ensure the safety of our children and to help traffic move through the circle quickly, including the AAPS buses.

It is critical that each and every parent (or caregiver) follow these instructions.

The five key pointers are:

1. Right in, right out, go slowly – you can ONLY turn right into the drop off circle from 8:30 am – 9:00 am and 3:45 pm – 4:15 pm.

2. There is only one way to drive through the circle – obey the “do not enter sign.”

3. Children exit the car on the curb side (passenger side, or right side) ONLY.  No one should ever exit on the left side of the car.  This is very dangerous for the children and the drivers.

4.  Pull up as far as you can – parents should drop off students close to the front doors to allow more cars to pull into the circle area.

5. Do not park and/or leave your car in the drop off circle.  The drop off circle is for drop off and pick up only.

Thank you for helping keep King students safe!
