Flexible Learning Day Starts December 2

Hello Armatage Community!


As many of you know, Governor Walz has recently passed Executive Order 20-94 incorporating a Flexible Learning Day each week into all classroom schedules throughout the State of Minnesota.  Aligned with those expectations and those of MPS, we have decided at Armatage to incorporate that Flexible Learning Day every Wednesday with the first day on December 2.  Specific details surrounding schedules will be communicated early in the week from teachers.  However, families can prepare for a live morning and afternoon meetings that book end a day of primarily independent work and small group academic support as provided by the teacher.


The Flexible Learning Day or flex day, gives both teachers and supporting staff a greater opportunity to prepare and implement differentiated instruction directly targeted to students who need additional support.  In addition, Armatage teachers and support staff are also provided with much needed additional collaboration and communication time with building leadership, grade level colleagues, and families.


In this time of continual change and transition, continual modifications and adjustments will take place in a very short time frame with the primary focus of supporting the safety of our students and families.  Author Kelly A. Morgan once said, “Changes are inevitable and not always controllable.  What can be controlled is how you manage, react to and work through the process.”  Know that we are always here to support our students and families.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me over the break as I will be checking emails.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
