Welcome Parents, Friends, Teachers, Staff, and Families of 

First Ward Creative Arts Academy! Please Look below for news and updates!

Attention Parents:

This is a reminder of a process that is in our Parent Handbook and has always been the expectation.  All transportation changes are handled by your child's classroom teacher. Please send your student with a written note to give to their teacher or you can send the teacher a Dojo message the night before or prior to 8:00 am to ensure the teacher gets the message. First Ward does not take transportation changes over the phone for the safety of all students. If you have a change during the day, you must fax (not email) your change prior to 3:15 pm to 980-343-5587 and it should include (teacher name, student name and parent contact number). Thank you for your cooperation! If you have yet to view our Parent Handbook, it is linked below!
