Arts Middle School Family Update

Monday, October 29th, 2018

Hello Arts Middle Families!

Office on the go

At Arts Middle School we believe the best place to be is where the students are. Mr. Ryan, Mr. Hines, and Mr. Lawrence do not have formal offices. Mr. Ryan's office was turned into a professional learning center filled with books for staff to learn and grow. Mr. Hines office was turned into flexible space for students throughout the day. At ever transition they are in the hallways, during classes they are in classrooms observing students and instruction. During the lunch waves they are in the cafeteria serving food, running raffles, and monitoring. Visible leadership is practiced everyday at Arts Middle!

News from the office

Bus Pass Requests: Parents, please note that we are unable to provide bus passes for any student to ride on a Hartford bus that is not their own. Specialty Transportation does not allow passes for any reason. If you need to request a bus pass for a suburban town bus, please be sure to provide a written note to the office no later than the morning of change.


Student Absences: As the season of colds approaches, it's important to be sure to know what to do in the event that your child will be out sick. If your student needs to be absent to school, there are three ways to let us know!


  1. Email us at aamsoffice@crec.org (preferred method of notification)
  2. Call our office at 860-724-0685
  3. Send in a note on the day your child returns



Residency Verification Forms (Non-Hartford Families): Please be sure to submit your 2018-2019 Residency Verification Form if you have not already done so. For questions or concerns, please contact Danah Serrano-Baez at 860-724-0685 x3559 or via email at dserranobaez@crec.org.
