Welcome to A.V. Cato Elementary School
Where Students Join Forces With Teachers To Excel
  A.V. Cato Elementary services students grades Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.
  In order to maximize instructional time and maintain an orderly, and safe dismissal process, no student may be checked out of the office after 2:45 p.m., unless it is an emergency. We understand situations arise; therefore, please call the front office should you have the need to check your child/children out after 2:45 pm, so that we can have ample notice to prepare.
