• August 8, 2017:

    We understand there are questions about the schedule for ACCESS Academy during the upcoming school year. Here’s where things stand: Our 6-8 grade student day is confirmed as 8:45 a.m.- 3:15 p.m. The District is working with the teacher's union, PAT, on a contract exception before we can finalize our 1-5 grade student day. We hope to have a decision soon, and will notify you immediately. We understand the need for families to be able to plan and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
