Visit by IDF Soldiers

Abrams was honored to host six IDF soldiers on Thursday evening, Dec. 11. The soldiers spoke about their military experiences, ate dinner with the students, and even played some basketball in the gym! 

The soldiers were given pre-Chanukah “care packages” donated by the Abrams community to take back to the troops in Israel- all in all, it was a wonderful experience for everyone.

Safety and Security Reminders


Just a reminder of AHA security procedures:

  • All parents should use the front door to enter the school with key cards and not the back doors. Parent swipe cards only work at front door.
  • Please do not ask students to open any doors- parents must report to the front office and check-in before entering the school.
  • No student or other person should use the lunchroom doors other than for dismissal or emergency purposes.

These rules are for our children’s safety.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Car Pool Rules 

All Parents who Car Pool:


Please note that the car pool line is for grades N and K only. All other students are to be dropped off in the front of the building.


Parents who use the back for drop off should follow the directions of the teachers in the parking lot. They are there to assist students and maintain a safe environment.  


Under no circumstances are parents to park their cars in the middle of the line and leave them unattended to walk students into the building.  


** We ask that parents refrain from cellphone use in the parking areas while dropping off and picking up their children.
