Mr. Norby's Update
Happy New Year Armstrong Community!
We are happy that 2020 is over and we are looking forward to a great and successful New Year!
We are exactly 2 weeks from the end of Semester 1 and we need all students and parents to check their teachers' schoology pages and continue to stay vigilant on completing all necessary work for credit. Teachers are ready and willing to work with any and all of their students to help them complete their work and celebrate their success! Thank you to our dedicated teachers and staff for all their hard work for our students and families
Our athletic and activity schedules will commence on January 14th with limited spectators but we are so excited to have our Falcons competing and participating again! SAVE THE DATE, All students are invited to participate in a virtual game night on January 22nd! More details will be shared but it will be a fun way for our students to connect safely and have some fun. Thank you to the Armstrong Parent Association for organizing this excellent activity!
Stay Safe and GO FALCONS!

COVID-19 Reminders and Updates:
All families must use the self-screening tool before sending their students to school or school activities each day.
The threshold for sending students home due to illness this school year is lower than usual. Make a plan with family or friends regarding how your student will get home from school if they develop symptoms of illness during the school day. Students without vehicles at school will need to be picked up promptly and will remain in an illness isolation room until picked up.
Please check your contact information in Infinite Campus and make sure it is up to date. For any changes, contact 763-504-8806.
If a student or staff is identified by the Minnesota Department of Health as a close contact of someone with lab-confirmed COVID-19 while at an AHS activity, they will receive notification from the school and explanation of next steps.
If a student or staff is NOT identified as a close contact, but is in an AHS activity group or a classroom with someone who has lab-confirmed COVID-19, they will receive general notification that there was a case of COVID-19 reported in their activity group or classroom.
