Auburn Public Schools

Hello Auburn Families and Staff, 

Happy Friday! The sun is shining and I am pleased to have completed my first two days as the proud Superintendent of the Auburn Public Schools.  I have been overwhelmed by all of the well wishes I have received from families and staff…THANK YOU for all of the support!  As I have said many times, the Auburn Public Schools is a great place to work and to learn.  APS is a place where we put kids first, we support and care for one another, we are committed to continuous improvement, and we value the partnership we have with our families.  I wish you all a fun-filled and relaxing weekend and I look forward to our work together.  AUBURN ROCKS!

Today, I am reporting COVID 19 Positives:  AHS(1), AMS(2), Bryn Mawr(1).

If you are part of the DESE AT-Home Testing program, please remember to test your child or yourself on Saturday and report only positive results.
