New Bell Times for 2021-2022 School Year
Monday, November 16, 2020 7:45 PM

Dear families of Armatage Montessori School, 

I want to bring to your attention that next year, for the 2021-22 school year, Armatage  will have a new bell (school start and end) times of 8:05 a.m. – 2”35 p.m.

At their November 10th meeting, the MPS Board of Education voted to approve the proposed bell time schedule beginning school year 2021-22. The Board of Education is confident the approved schedule can meet the goals of:

• Increasing participation in after-school programming particularly for those schools with a higher concentration of families receiving educational benefits as this has been shown to have a direct correlation to student achievement and sense of belonging.

• Reducing transportation costs so that savings can be reinvested into the classroom.

• Improving on-time arrivals at schools.


If you have any questions about this change, please let me know. 



Joan Franks, Principal
