Adams Elementary operates on the year-round calendar. Students at the year-round schools are divided into four groups, called tracks, with each track having its own calendar. In a year-round elementary school, the traditional 180-day school year is divided into nine-week quarters with a three week break at the end of each quarter. Students are in school the same number of days as their counterparts in traditional schools; the days are simply redistributed thoughout the year. The reorganized schedule is called a 45/15 - 45 days in school, 15 days off.
Year-round schools provide a continuous learning process. Since students do not have long summer vacations, major reviewing in the fall is eliminated. Students and teachers are energized throughout the year due to regular breaks. The three-week breaks provide frequent enrichment and remedial opportunities for students during the year.
Adams Elementary is a dynamic learning environment where the focus is on student growth. Teachers engage students from where they are, enriching and intervening on essential learning objectives, starting in kindergarten and continuing until they leave in 5th grade. It is critical that each student grows to their fullest potential. Teachers engage students in a wide range of learning tasks focusing on an integration of curriculum and 21st century skills. Adams Elementary provides a solid foundation for all learners so they transition to middle school and have a successful middle school experience.
The primary strength of Adams Elementary is the outstanding staff members. From day one of Kindergarten students are held to the highest of expectations in all areas (academic learning, positive behavior, work habits, etc) in order to continue the growth started at home and in preschool. Students are supported to achieve their very best. Teachers are leaders that share a joint responsibility with administration to make school wide decisions that meet the needs of our school community. A dynamic staff coupled with active and engaged parents will lead to success for all students. There is no obstacle that cannot be overcome working together.

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 8:35 AM, Fri, Oct 17, 2014.
Stop times: Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 3 minutes between stops for neighborhood routes and 10 minutes for express routes. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.
Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. With students becoming familiar with this new routine, bus routes may take more time.
Faded Stops: Stops in faded text are on the route, but do not pick up or drop off students attending this school.
Questions?: Contact Transportation.
Can't find your bus stop?: If you cannot find your child's bus stop, please fill out our customer support form to report a missing bus stop.
