FRIDAY FAMILY UPDATE

January 14, 2022



Good afternoon AMS Families!


There will be no COVID Pooled testing next week due to the short week. We are finding pooled testing to be a great mitigation strategy. If you are interested in signing your student up to participate in our weekly pooled testing, here is the link: Pooled Testing Sign up and Consent


There is no School on Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, and Tuesday is a teacher workshop day. That day is a day off for students. As a reminder, the first three snow days are traditional snow days where students are off from school. After the third snow day, those days will be remote learning days where students will follow their AMS schedules remotely. We have had two snow days so far.


Auburn Middle School has been selected to participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). This assessment will be given to a sampling of 8th grade students at the end of January. The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only assessment that measures what U.S. students know and can do in various subjects across the nation, states, and in some urban districts. Also known as The Nation’s Report Card, NAEP has provided important information about how students are performing academically since 1969. If your student is selected you will receive a letter from me with more details next week.

Our next Early Release Day is on February 2nd.


Finally, as we approach the midpoint of the school year, I wanted to thank you for all of your support as we work through a very challenging school year. Our Auburn students are simply amazing, and even with the ongoing challenges due to the pandemic, they arrive each day ready to learn!


Enjoy the long weekend!


Sincerely,


Bob Griffin

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.

Wave 1: 2:00 Student Last names: A-D

Wave 2: 2:05 Student Last names: E-K

Wave 3: 2:10 Student Last names: L-R

Wave 4: 2:15 Student Last names: S-Z

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

  • Student WALKERS - Walkers will be dismissed after busses at approximately 2:15pm. In the mornings, walkers should arrive between 7:00-7:20am.

FAQ(s):

  1. What if I need to pick up my student early?

A: Please arrange pick up prior to 1:30PM to ensure that you will not be caught by busses and traffic.

  1. What if I am running late?

A: Please join the next wave. If it becomes a scheduling conflict, please call the office and we will adjust the wave assignment to ensure that your child is not waiting for extra time.

  1. What if it is raining or other inclimate weather?

A: Please have students dress for the weather, but in extreme conditions, we will have students wait in the gymnasium and be dismissed individually (this may cause a slower release. We ask for your patience and understanding.
