Tiger Construction FYI

In light of the upcoming downtown construction this summer, we would like to inform you that we will be providing a drop-off/pick-up zone that will be temporarily located at our 3rd street side entrance. We have arranged for volunteers and ACB staff to be present outside with clear signs, to provide assistance to parents dropping off or picking up their children before and after camps. We will communicate any updated procedures before the start of your camp. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during the ongoing downtown construction.
