The school day for all grades, K-5, is 8:25-2:55. Students need to be in their lines at 8:23 for the first bell so they can be in their classrooms, ready to learn, by 8:25. Students are tardy at 8:21. There is no playground supervision before 8:10, so please make sure your child does not arrive before then. If your child/children participate in our breakfast program they may arrive as early as 8:05.
On days students will be lining up inside the building before school because of cold or wet weather, there will be a yellow flag displayed on the front of the building, near the front doors.

Hello Yale families,
We hope that you had a wonderful and restful summer break!
We'd like to inform you about some important upcoming dates.
Join us for the APS Back to School Kick off Saturday, August 8th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Town Center at Aurora formally the Aurora Mall. Look for the Yale booth located on the 1st floor near the Sears Store. Class lists will be posted and we will be handing out backpacks to students while supplies last. The student must be present. There is also a low or no cost immunization booth. Please bring any shot records you have.
Our Back to School Night is August 10th from 5:00-6:00 p.m. Come in and meet the teacher, drop off school supplies if you like and join us for some ice cream. At 5:45 teachers will close their rooms and join the ice cream social in order to see past students and families. We will also have information on our Before and After School Program and bussing.
On August 11th and 12th, our teachers will be testing students in grades 1-5 to see what your child’s reading level is. If your child’s last name starts with A-K your testing date will be on the 11th. If your child’s last name starts with L-M your testing date is the 12th. If you have children with different last names, feel free to bring them together on either day. Come by any time on those dates between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm to insure your child will have a testing slot. We will not be starting any new testing sessions after 3:30. Kindergarten is by prearranged appointment only.
School starts for grades 1-5 on Thursday August 13th and for Preschool and Kindergarten on August 18th. School hours are the same as last year, 8:25-2:55.
Enjoy your last few days of summer break!
