  • 2022-2023 A. MacArthur Barr Middle School Update on Goals and Priorities

    During the Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, April 18th, several members of our staff presented an update on our goals and priorities for the 2022 - 2023 year.  The slideshow below is just a brief snapshot of the high quality  teaching and learning moments shared by students and staff.  As I visit classrooms with our Assistant Principal, Mrs. Oates, we are inspired by the level of energy and passion we see as students are engaged in hands-on learning experiences.

  • Welcome

    Greetings,

    My name is Michelle O’Sullivan and I am the proud Principal of A. MacArthur Barr Middle School!   Here at Barr, our students are surrounded by passionate educators who prioritize communication, collaboration and shared accountability.  We are committed to professional learning and  providing the highest level of education through engaging, relevant and rigorous learning opportunities.  We understand what it takes for our students to develop the knowledge, 21st century skills, social emotional skills and character traits necessary to be successful community members  in an ever changing and challenging world.   A. MacArthur, along with the district, has undergone many changes  since Nanuet's original  one room school house was built in 1806.   However,  our strong sense of community and our shared  dedication to the individual learning journey of each student is still at the heart of all we do!  

    I can be reached by email at mosullivan@nanuetsd.org or by phone at 845  627-4040.

     

    Warm regards,

    Michelle O'Sullivan

  • News from the Nurse

    In the event your child shows signs and symptoms of illness, we ask that you keep them home and notify our attendance secretary, Daniella Ng, at 627-4420 to report the absence. 

    If your child or a family member tests positive for COVID, please contact our School Nurse Giovanna Conklin, R.N, directly at 627-4041. 

    As a reminder, students will be marked unexcused late to class unless the reason for their late arrival is directly due to a bus arriving late or another unavoidable scenario such as documented appointment, weather, or traffic issue outside of our drop-off line.  Students arriving late to school must report to the attendance office for a pass before heading to class. 

    The following procedures are in place at this time:

    • Unexcused lateness will result in consequences as follows:
      • First late: verbal reminder from attendance office
      • Second late: verbal reminder and phone call to parent from attendance office*
      • Third late:  letter sent home and after school detention
      • Cycle begins again but phone call from AP* or principal*
    • If a child is not present in school, they will be marked absent. Please call the attendance secretary, Daniella Ng, at 627-4420 to inform her of the absence. If your child is absent due to a vetted COVID-related situation, a daily call is not necessary. 
    • Students missing class can keep up with their coursework by visiting Schoology and contacting each teacher individual for course-specific information.
