Important Information Regarding the Remainder of the School Year

As ordered by the Department of Education, all public schools, including Barton, will remain closed for the remainder of the school year (May 20, 2020). All extra-curricular activities and school functions will be canceled for the reminder of the year. School will continue education through paper AMI packets. Your child will receive the remaining AMI packets at pick up Monday through Wednesday of this week.

  1. Pick up AMI Packets to complete the school year Monday, April 6th- Wednesday April 8th, in the elementary or high school buildings.
  2. Teachers will be available for AMI packet assistance 8:00-11:00 and 12:00-2:00.
  3. All AMI packets are for grades. To check your child’s grades, please visit
  4. Teachers will enter grades in a timely fashion. However, papers will be quarantined the recommended time by the CDC and teachers will grade multiple days of work per student. Please be patient as it will take several weeks to bring all grades up to current.
