    Weekly Announcements: 

    Hello Bach Families!

    We have some exciting events taking place this week at our school.

    Inclement Weather

    Weather protocols and school safety information can be viewed: Please notify Kim Kauffman in the main office if your contact information has changed. If your phone number is not current, or if you opt out of notifications, you will not receive calls from any AAPS building, including inclement weather notifications. AAPS will strive to make weather-related decisions by 5:00 AM, when possible.

    Cold Weather Gear

    Students should be coming to school dressed for the colder temps. Full winter gear includes coats, boots, snow pants, hats, and mittens/gloves. Students go outside at recess for up to 30 minutes. Please be sure your children have all the winter gear they need to stay warm and play at recess. Please contact Mrs. Epler at if you are in need of any of these winter items for your child.

    After-hours Building Access

    All doors are locked from 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM. Families with children attending Child Care should always use the back entrance to the building. Even though the office may be open, there isn’t always someone to buzz you into the building for Child Care. I am meeting this week with our Operations Department to work on a long term solution that is more convenient for our families and Child Care staff.

    PTO Thrift Shop Raffle

    Extended SCRIP Store Hours

    SCRIP cards make great holiday gifts. To make holiday scrip card shopping even easier, there will be extra scrip store hours in the Bach School lobby. In addition to the usual Wednesday morning hours, 8:45 AM – 9:15 AM, the Scrip store will also be open on the next 3 Friday mornings (Dec. 4, 11, 18), 8:45 AM – 9:15 AM.
