We are looking forward to seeing you all at Albany Middle School’s Back to School Night this Thursday, September 22nd. The PTA meeting will be in the library at 6pm, which is a great chance to see how to get involved for the year, or just to get information. Back to School Night begins at 7pm and ends at 8:40pm. Your child will bring home his/her schedule for you on Wednesday. You will move through your child’s classes in 10 minute increments. This is an event for parents and guardians only; students should stay at home. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there! Additionally, you will be receiving an email from the district that tests the district’s Emergency Communication Process that would be used to notify families, students, staff, and community in the event of an emergency. We’ll see you this Thursday!
