August 21, 2020
Hello Sault Area Middle School Families.
We hope you summer has been relaxing. We also hope you are ready to return to school. Our first day of the school year is Tuesday, September 8. School begins at 7:55 AM and classes begin promptly at 8:00 AM and we dismiss at 3 PM. Currently we are able to return to face-to-face instruction and are excited to welcome our Blue Devils back to the building.
Please visit saultschools.org/sams for the latest updates and information on our Sault Schools Return to School Plan.
Many are wondering when student schedules will be available. We will have schedules available on our Illuminate Parent Portal on Monday, August 31. If you are in need of your Illuminate Parent Portal log-in information, please contact Mrs. Pam Pomeroy for grades 5 & 7 at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mrs. Becky Dale for grades 6 & 8 at email@example.com. On Tuesday September 1 we willhost a "schedule drive in". Parents are able to drive thru the drop-off lane in front of the building to pick up their student's schedule. This is available from 11 AM-1PM and 5PM-6PM that day.

Parents, please drop you students off at the main entrance canopy to start their tour. Masks are required. Students will be able to meet their teachers, take a tour of the building and learn about their daily schedules.
First Days of School
There have been a few questions abou the start of the day and where students are to go. Upon arriving to the building, students are required to be wearing masks(masks will also be required on all busses) and to use hand sanitizer when entering. Grade 5 will report to the playground(inclement weather=Library), Grade 6 to the Main Gym, Grade 7 to the Multipurpose Room and Grade 8 to the 8th Grade Hallways. Again, our first bell rings at 7:55AM, classes begin at 8AM.
The week of September 8, student planners and student IDs will be handed out. The week of September 14 SAMS logo masks will be distributed.
