School Messenger

Amherst County Public Schools (ACPS) has recently implemented a new school notification system called SchoolMessenger. SchoolMessenger is fully integrated with the Parent Portal in PowerSchool. You will need to log into the Parent Portal to update your contact information and set your preferences for how you would like to be contacted in situations such as weather closings or for other notifications. Please contact your school directly if you have changes to current phone numbers or addresses. If you do not have Parent Portal access, you will need visit your child’s school(s) with a photo ID for your PowerSchool Parent Portal login credentials. To visit the Parent Portal,  click the Parent Portal link located on the left of the page.

About the new School Websites

Dear Parents, Staff and Community,

Welcome to the new ACPS School Websites! Why the change you might ask? For our parents and guardians the plan is to make the school websites uniform and similar in layout. The thought behind this is if a parent has children in more than one school they can easily navigate across multiple sites when looking for the same information. It has been years since the launch of the old sites and it is time for a new look and feel.
