 Feb. 16 Community Meeting about Elementary Relocation Plans
Join APS for a community forum on Tue, Feb. 16 to discuss the proposed relocation plans after a new neighborhood elementary school is built on the Thomas Jefferson Middle School campus in 2019.

The forum will begin at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Jefferson Middle School, 125 Old Glebe Road. This is an opportunity to discuss how the following possibilities, suggested by the South Arlington Working Group, may help address crowding in South Arlington elementary schools, including:
  • The potential move of Patrick Henry Elementary School to the new elementary site at Jefferson,
  • The potential move of the Montessori Program at Drew Elementary School to the building at the Henry site, and
  • The expected availability of 400 seats at Drew if the Montessori Program moves.
Any boundary changes as a result of these potential moves would be part of a separate community process during the 2017-18 school year and would take effect in the 2019-20 school year. Additional information can be found on the APS MoreSeats website.
