Remember to call our attendance line at 847-357-6702 by 9:00 a.m. each day your student will be absent.  Be sure to include your child’s name, teacher, classroom number, and reason for the absence.  Students who are not called in absent will be marked as unexcused.  Please make every effort to schedule vacations and medical appointments around the school calendar.

Order Hot Lunch and Snack Day!

Armstrong PTA (Parent Teacher Association) will be offering an optional Snack Day and Hot Lunch through a pre-pay program. We are collecting order payments for the months of October 2019 through May 2020.

If you are interested in ordering, please complete the Snack Day Order Form and/or the Hot Lunch Order Form that were handed out to students and parents.

Snack Day orders must be received by Thursday, September 19, 2019 to ensure your child will receive a Snack for October.  Hot Lunch Orders must be received by Friday, September 20, 2019 to ensure your child will receive a Hot Lunch for October.

You may purchase for one month, two months, or as many as you like!  Please remember to send a lunch with your child on snack days as these are only treats and should not be considered a lunch.  No drink will be included, so please send one with your child as you normally do.  Please remember to mark all selections on the forms, including choice of toppings and flavors on a snack or sides with lunch. If no choice is made, your child will receive the first option.  There will be no refunds or substitutions.   Our hot lunch program does offer peanut free choices.  However, we cannot guarantee everything will be soy free.  If your child is absent on a Snack Day or Hot Lunch Day, you may pick it up in the office at Armstrong at 11:30 a.m.

Please calculate the total on the order form and return it with the exact amount of the payment due in an envelope labeled, “Snack Day” or “Hot Lunch”, with your child’s name, room number, teacher’s name, phone number and parent signature. Over payments will be considered a donation to the PTA. Checks or money orders made out to Armstrong PTA are strongly preferred. No cash accepted.

You will receive a confirmation on your order indicating the food order and dates you have selected.

Thank you in advance for supporting the Armstrong PTA!  If you have any questions, please contact Robyn Reich at rmr341@

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Students may enter through the front doors of the school starting at 8:25am. There is no adult supervision before this time, so students should not be dropped off earlier than 8:25am.  If you will be picking up your child after school, the best pickup location is near the flagpole in front of the school.  Please contact our office if your child(ren) will attend daycare after school.  If the plans for your child’s transportation needs to be altered at any time, parents must contact the office directly. For example, if a child takes the bus, he/she will be expected to take the bus unless we receive a phone call to the office stating otherwise.  We want to ensure the safety of all our Armstrong students!

To ensure the safety of our students, the parking lot will be closed from 8:20–8:40 a.m. and again during dismissal between 2:55–3:10 p.m.
