Purple Star School

Ashlawn Elementary School is in the process of being designated as a “Purple Star” school. Purple Star schools are designated and approved by the Virginia Department of Education, and show that the school has demonstrated prioritization of readiness to support the social-emotional challenges military-connected students face.The Arlington Public School Board passed a resolution publicizing our district’s support for military students and families.
