Good afternoon AMS Families,


We realize that many of our students and their families are struggling. The ongoing pandemic has been difficult for everyone. Please know that we are available to help. If students do not have internet at home, we can lend a hot spot to help. We have a new food pantry at AMS which is accessible to all students. In addition, our School Counselors, and School Social Worker, are available to help support students, and to connect families to resources.


AMS Student-Athletes in Skiing and Basketball have been engaging in virtual activities and logging home workouts with their coaches since Androscoggin County was designated "Yellow" at the beginning of the Winter Sports Season. The Department of Education updated their color designation earlier today, and we continue to be in “Yellow”. If your child(ren) would like to join their teammates in the fun and mentorship for the last month of the season, please contact the AMS Athletic Director, Anthony Timberman, at atimberman@auburnschl.edu.


We are now settled into our new main office area. The new office entrance is to the right when you look at the front of the school. A large banner has been placed over the entrance doors so everyone knows where to go. Our new office provides many features that make our school safer.

Yearbooks are still for sale. They can be ordered directly from jostensyearbooks.com. If you have any questions please contact Ms. Poulin directly at cpoulin@auburnschl.edu.

Please remember that it is the responsibility of families to make sure the COVID screening is completed each day prior to students coming to school. If your student is sick or if they experience any COVID symptoms please make sure you let us know. Family Covid Screening (DAILY)

If your child is not feeling well, PLEASE do not send them to school.


There is no in person or remote learning on Monday, 1/18/21, due to the holiday recognizing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.



Have a great weekend!

Auburn Middle School Parent-Student Drop Off and Pick Up MAP

Drop Off Instructions:

Drive up Falcon Drive toward the school. Take a left as you face the school. Travel along the left side of the building. In the back, drop off your student in the designated area. Follow the road up and loop around. Drive back down the same road to Falcon Drive.

Pick Up Instructions:

Parents should enter the campus during their assigned pick-up time, bear left, and the first car in the line will be stopped just past the turn around at the back of the school. We will have staff there to facilitate this. Students from each wave will leave the back entrance and socially distance themselves along the turnaround loop. Parents will follow the line of cars around the loop and stop to pick up their child. Parents should carefully proceed around the loop and exit back down the way they entered.

***********************************************************************************************************

Based on consultation with the city, the safest place for parent pick up is in the rear of the building. To shorten wait times, we will have 4 waves of student dismissals.

Every Parent/Guardian is assigned a pick-up wave for their child.
