Summer Facility Update

Summer Project Facility Update

Welcome! ACPS is excited to welcome new and former Douglas MacArthur Elementary School students back to our hallways and classrooms for the start of the 2019-2020 school year. 

At the close of the 2018-2019 school year, the decision was made to use the former Patrick Henry Elementary School as swing space for Douglas MacArthur Elementary School students. Construction on the new school building is slated to begin in 2020.

ACPS is committed to improving the condition of our schools so teachers and students have an appropriate environment within which to learn. Over the summer, repairs and renovations continued at a number of our school sites to get our buildings ready for September. 

At MacArthur school:

  • We repaired HVAC units to sustain the school building through this last year. 

We look forward to future communications with you as the school year commences.
