It is our intent to provide access to information for all Arlington Public School families.

In an effort to support communication with families whose home language is not English, we have
provided links to documents translated into the 3 major languages in the school district.
We have also provided an online translation process of all parent forms using Google Translate. Additionally, families may request a document be translated into their home language, or for an interpreter to accompany them to meetings with school officials.

If you have questions or require further assistance, please email Hilary Dawson at:

Thank you,
Dr. Roderick MacNeal, Jr.
Assistant Superintendent
