First Day of School, School Hours, and Safety Information

On behalf of the Armstrong staff, we are excited to welcome our students back to school this Monday , August 21st!  We appreciate the families who attended Back to School Night to meet your child’s teacher, support PTA, and learn about the opportunities ahead this school year.  The excitement from students was incredible to see, and we can’t wait to feel the energy on the first day of school!

First Day of School

We look forward to welcoming all students in Grades 1-6 on Monday, August 21st.  Kindergarten students will begin on Monday, August 28th. When students arrive on the first day of school, they will line up outside on the blacktop with their classroom teacher.  In case of rain, students will enter the school through the front doors, and teachers will be inside the school standing near their classrooms.  If your child has difficulty finding his/her teacher, a staff member holding a balloon will help find the correct location.

Parking Lot Safety

Safety for our students and staff is a top priority.  Our parking lot is CLOSED during arrival from 8:20-8:40am and during dismissal from 2:55-3:10pm. There is no adult supervision outside prior to the 8:25am bell.  Parents can park on Kingsdale Road in front of Armstrong, but please be considerate of neighbors and avoid blocking driveways.  Please remember to drive slowly around the school and be respectful to our crossing guard.
