Dear Students and Families,

We are very excited to be moving forward to more consistent in-person learning with  students!  Our kindergarten families received a survey last Friday to finalize their decision about which track (in-person or all remote) they wanted their children to be in for the remainder of the school year.  That survey ended yesterday and we now have the information we need to finalize planning to return kindergarten students to in-person on March 8th that have made that selection.   


Families of students in grades 1 to 3 students will receive a survey soon to finalize your decision about which track you want your children to be in.  Once we have that information we will move as quickly and safely as possible to return those grade levels.  We will share more specific target dates for those grade levels soon.


Along these same lines, the Armstrong Parent Group has been working diligently with the School, School Committee and the Superintendent to safely bring our children back to in class learning. Representatives from the APG will be meeting with the Superintendent's Advisory Council on a weekly basis to discuss questions and concerns that our community has with this initiative. Our goal is to make your voices heard and get your questions answered. If you have any questions or concerns about this process that you would like us to bring forward to discuss, please email us at We will also be discussing this initiative at our next APG meeting, which takes place Thursday March 5 at 7pm via zoom. Please check our Facebook, Armstrong Parent Group, the day of the event for the link or email us if you would like us to send you the link directly.


We want to thank our families again for your ongoing collaboration.  We know that this has been an incredibly difficult time.  We are thrilled to return students to more consistent in-person learning that are ready to do so.  We also look forward to our continued partnership with our remote families for the remainder of the year.  We will continue to keep you updated as planning is finalized.  Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead!


Thank you,

Mr. Mendes
