Track 4 Building Tour:  Many Track 4 families have been seeking an opportunity to tour the building toward the end of July.  We have scheduled a short building tour for Track 4 families and students on Thursday July 25th from 5-6pm.  Please note this is not a "meet the teacher" event rather an opportunity to see the new building.  Open House for Track 4 families will still occur on July 8th. Any information missed during the Open House will be available when students track-in at the end of July and school starts.  PTSA is also working on being present on 7/25 to provide families with information and to purchase items.



ARMS Bus Routes:  WCPSS recently released specific bus information for our 2019-20 bus routes.  Please see this link for specific information if you were unable to view routes in PowerSchools or didn’t receive an email from WCPSS Transportation: ARMS Bus Routes 2019-20.  For additional transportation questions, please contact Assistant Principal Tevin Jones at  WCPSS Transportation will also be present at our Open House on 6/8/19 to help answer additional questions or concerns.



PE Uniforms:  The Alston Ridge Middle School Healthful Living Department is in the process of creating an outstanding program for students.  During the physical education weeks, it is mandatory for students to dress-out for exercising. Students must wear a GRAY shirt and BLACK/NAVY BLUE athletic shorts/pants each day for PE.  While these outfits don’t have to be Alston Ridge Middle specific apparel, we will have ARMS shirts for sale to purchase at Open House. Shirts will be $10 and cash/check (made out to Alston Ridge Middle School Athletics Boosters) will be accepted.



Immunizations:  Attention parents of rising 7th graders.  NC law requires Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines for entry into the 7th grade.  Immunizations need be to complete before your child tracks-in for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please bring proof of your child’s immunization records to our open house on July 8th. There will be drop off locations near the front office.  Please click the following links for additional information on immunizations: English Version, Spanish Version
