ACES Drop-off and Pickup Location & Line-up Changes

Amelia County Public Schools and the Amelia County Sheriff's Department have worked together over the summer to develop a plan to create a safe and efficient drop-off/pickup traffic pattern for Amelia County Elementary School families. This year, drop-off and pickup will occur in the bus loop at the back of the school after all buses have departed at 8:10 AM and 3:30 PM. ACES parents will line up at the county lot until the buses have exited. Once the buses have departed, families will be directed to start entering the ACES bus loop at the rear of the school. A diagram is attached as a reference. Please review the following letter for more details.
