Duval County Public Schools is welcoming students from Arlington Country Day School, in light of its recent and sudden closure on Friday.

Parents were informed about the school's closure, which happened on Friday, by email from a school official.

The email announcement, however, offered no explanation for the school's sudden closure.

It is with a very sad heart that I inform you that ACD is closed as of 1/26/18. I speak for all the faculty and staff who will miss your children greatly. It has been an honor to serve you and to be trusted with your children.

Records requests can be sent to acdsap@gmail.com. We will make every effort to make the transition to a new school a smooth one.

Field trip money will be refunded next week.

There are no words to convey how much we are saddened by this. Many of you have been part of the ACD family for years and we thank you and are very grateful for all your support and kindness.

Mrs. Condit
