Visit Our Schools Month, Anchorage School District

All ASD schools will be open for tours in February

Visit Our Schools Month, Every school, every Tuesday, Feb. 3rd 9:30 a.m., Feb. 10th 9:30 a.m., Feb. 17th 9:30 a.m., Feb 24th 9:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Community members, businesses and parents are invited to visit any ASD school during the month of February to learn more about the community’s public schools. While schools welcome members of the public year-round, this coordinated effort provides parents and community members an opportunity to learn more about the many educational opportunities available. During the inaugural Visit Our Schools Month event in February 2014, ASD schools welcomed 1,607 visitors.

The safety of our students will always remain our top priority. All people on tours will be checked in through normal procedures that visitors follow. Principals and school staff will be leading the tours and tour groups will never be unsupervised. Students will continue classroom activities during tours and the tours will not interfere with student learning.
