Dear Augusta School Department Elementary Families,

Last night, the School Committee unanimously voted to move the first day of school for only elementary to September 10. This means that Cohort A students first day of school will be September 10, and Cohort B students first day of school will be September 11. Cohort C students, remote only, families will need to pick up devices, back to school paperwork, meals and other materials on Wednesday, September 9 between 9-10:00 am. Cohort C remote families will be receiving a phone call from their child’s teacher on Tuesday, September 8, in order to connect and confirm pickup for Wednesday. 

Just a reminder that Kindergarten students' first day is September 14 and PreK is September 15. Please call your child’s school, if you have not scheduled a time for your child to be screened next week.

In addition, this week we learned that breakfast and lunch will continue to be at no cost to all families. All in person students will be offered breakfast and lunch meals for the weekdays they are not in school. Remote only students will be offered breakfast and lunch meals, which may be picked up on Mondays and Wednesdays between 9:00-9:30 am at the main entrance of each building. This is a wonderful opportunity for all families to participate in our food service program at no charge.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we continue to prepare to bring students back to school safely during these unprecedented times. 

Superintendent James Anastasio

Please be aware that policy JCA:  Assignment of Students to Schools and Classes states:  the Augusta Board of Education has the legal authority to determine which school a student will attend.  Due to fluctuations in enrollments, there may be situations where the Superintendent will transfer students to a less crowded school or classroom in order to ensure that students have the best possible education. 
A parent who is dissatisfied with the Superintendent’s decision may, within five days of receipt of the Superintendent’s decision, appeal in writing to the Board.  The Board will hear the appeal at its next regular meeting.
