May 25, 2012
The last day of school is a half-day. Bus transportation will be provided as usual. Breakfast will be served at all schools, and lunch will be served at elementary schools dismissing after noon
All high schools will dismiss at 11:30 a.m.
All middle schools will dismiss at 12:15 p.m., except Washington Mid-School, which will dismiss at 1 p.m.

The snow make-up days were decided upon last spring when the 2011-12 calendar was approved by the APS Board of Education.
The calendar was recommended by a committee made up of parents, students, community members, principals, other administrators and union representatives. The committee considered many issues when developing the calendar including required instructional time for students, federal holidays, state testing, union contracts, community partnerships, tradition, and payroll requirements.
