AMS Revised Schedule as of 4.23.19

Dear Cougar Family,


As you know, all schools lost several days of instruction this fall due to inclement weather and we lost two additional days in January due to heating system failures. The school district also announced this week that all schools will be closed May 1 due to the large number of teachers attending a rally at the General Assembly to address working conditions.


This combination of events requires Apex Middle School to recover instructional time between now and the end of the school year.   


To do so, AMS will begin the school day at 8:05 am beginning Tuesday, April 23. We are starting school 10 minutes earlier for the rest of the school year. If your child rides the bus in the morning, they need to arrive at the bus stop 10 minutes before the current pick-up time. While arriving early is what we always recommend, it will be especially important when we adjust the bell schedule following Spring Break.


We greatly appreciate your patience as I understand this could create an inconvenience for some. The good news is our heating system will be repaired this summer thanks to the recent voter approval of school bonds.


I have full confidence that our students and staff will adjust to these changes beautifully and we will continue to have a productive and effective 4th quarter. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the office at 919-387-2181.  Thank you for your continued support of Apex Middle School.


Monica Yllanes, Principal
