Reminders for Pick up & Drop off Procedures

Student safety is our top concern throughout the entire day, starting with arrival. Please note these reminders and follow all procedures to ensure the safety of all students…. [read full article]


Change in Elementary School Times

Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, Andover USD 385 elementary start and end times will move forward by 10 minutes to 8:45 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.  The extra ten minutes between secondary and elementary schools will allow the district time to run a reasonable amount of bus routes and still deliver students to elementary schools on time. One thing to note is start times for high and middle schools will not change. Andover High School and Andover Middle School times will continue to be 7:50 a.m.-2:50 p.m. and Andover Central High School and Andover Central Middle Schools will be 8 a.m.-3 p.m

Early Dismissal

If you wish to have your child dismissed before the normal end of the day, please let the their teacher or office know by 3:00 pm.  When you arrive at school to pick up your child, please come to the office and sign them out. Your child will then be called down to the office.

Absences and Tardiness

If your child is going to be late or absent, you must notify the school office.  This is a safety net for children who walk to school or wait at a bus stop without adult supervision.  It also allows accurate records. 


All visitors are asked to sign in at the main office and wear a vistors sticker so that we can readily identify all adults in the building.
