Pooled Covid testing began this week at AMS. Students did a great job! We are hoping to significantly increase the number of students participating in our pooled testing program. This can be a powerful mitigation strategy when participation is high.

Good afternoon AMS Families!


I hope everyone enjoyed the break last week. It has been great to see students back in school this week and ready to learn.


We are very excited to announce that our Drama Club will be performing “The Canterbury Tales” on 12/16 @ 7PM, Friday, 12/17 @ 7PM, and Saturday 12/18 @ 2PM and 7PM. Please see the attached flyer for details. AMS December Drama Production


Pooled Testing Notice for families who have not yet signed up for pooled testing: Testing rosters are created on Friday morning at AMS for the coming week. As such, we ask that all NEW registrants are enrolled by the end of the school day on Thursday. This will ensure that your child is included in pooled testing the following week.

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.
