From the Principal
Welcome to A. MacArthur Barr Middle School
On behalf of the entire Middle School Staff, I would like to welcome all fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade students and parents to what promises to be an exciting and challenging year. I hope you all had a wonderful, restful summer and are looking forward to the learning experiences that will be awaiting all of us in the days and months ahead.
I would like to extend a special greeting to all fifth grade students and other students who are new to our district and the middle school. Be assured that every effort has been made to provide them with a smooth transition. All fifth grade students will have extra time during the first few days of school to familiarize themselves with their schedule, lockers and dismissal procedures.
I encourage you to work in partnership with us and to become actively involved in the plethora of opportunities for academic and social growth that the middle school provides. It is my sincere hope that we all have a successful and enjoyable year.

The No Child Left Behind Act
The No Child Left Behind Act requires parents to be informed of their child's academic progress on each of their state assessments. Please be assured that if your child takes a state assessment, you will receive notification by mail of your son/daughter's results along with an overview and explanation. In addition, parents also have the right to know about the professional qualifications and state certification of their child's teacher. If staff has been assigned to teach outside of their area of certification, you will receive written notification. Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding the professional qualifications of your child's teacher.
From the Nurse's Office
New York State Law requires all incoming 7th grade students must have a physical examination. If you prefer to have your child's doctor perform the exam please have the
filled out and signed by your physician.
Any incoming 7th or 8th grade student who plans to play a sport next year must have a physical examination either privately with their own doctor or with Dr. Ingrassia, the school physician. All private athletic physicals must be returned to the Health Office in order to be eligible for a fall sport.
* Please note an athletic physical performed by Dr. Ingrassia fulfills the 7th grade NYS physical requirement
