Aledo ISD will begin school on Wednesday, Dec. 11, two hours later due to continued icy conditions on secondary roads. All bus routes and schools will begin their schedule tomorrow two hours later than normal.
The District will continue to monitor road conditions in the early morning hours to ensure that the two-hour delay is the best strategy for our students. Please continue to monitor the District website for any possible changes to this schedule.
Additional Information for AMS Students:
All 7/8 grade students will take the Math benchmark test on December 11.
The 7/8 grade Science Field Trip has been postponed until further notice.
As an extension and enrichment activity for multiple seventh and eighth grade science objectives, both grade levels will have the opportunity to see Gravity on Thursday, December 12, 2013, at Rave Movie Theater (Ridgmar Mall).
The movie is PG13; therefore, students will NOT be allowed to attend without a SIGNED permission slip.

All money for the field trip will be turned in to the student's Science teacher. Students need to bring their signed permission form and $5 no later than Friday, December 6.
