From the Principal
Dear Barr Families,
It has been wonderful to see all of our students back in school, enjoying the full middle school experience. Thank you to all of the parents, staff and students for making this such a successful start. We have a lot of new staff members this year who are enthusiastically adding their talents to our already terrific middle school staff and I am excited for you to meet them. To this end, we will be hosting our Meet the Teacher Night, in person, next Thursday, September 30th from 6:30-8:30 pm. Your child will bring home a copy of the schedule for the evening and homeroom teachers will have extra copies available as well. The event will follow an “A” Day schedule for the first quarter. Additionally, only one parent per child will be admitted into each session and this is a parent only event in order to provide as much social distancing as possible. Parents attending in person will be required to properly wear a mask at all times. Lastly, parents will also be able to attend each session via Zoom. You child’s Schoology page will have all the information you need to join virtually.
On another note, we have been made aware of a Tik Tok challenge called “devious licks” that is taking place nationwide. The challenge encourages students to vandalize school property and post it on social media. This challenge has unfortunately made its way into our school. Please help us to encourage our students to take pride in their school by talking to your child about the seriousness of these types of behaviors and the importance of maintaining our school facility.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teachers, guidance counselor to me at email@example.com or our new assistant principal, Michelle O’Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to an exciting partnership during the upcoming school year.
