Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Neil Armstrong School.
This school year opens in a way that is unlike any other. Not only are we beginning the school year with Hybrid and Remote Learning, but our A Wing is under construction and thus many practices have changed. These include student drop off and pick up (located in the back parking lot at designated times), visitor and volunteer practices and Main Entrance (Door #2).
For the most up to date information, please consult our district website updates at: ww.gateschili.org and be sure your email address is up to date and in our School Tool Parent Portal so you can receive information through our emailed Space Log Bulletins.
How can families get involved?
HYBRID Learner: Check your child's Take Home Folder & Agenda (for students in grades 4-5)
ALL: Use the SCHOOLOGY platform to see your child’s assignments!
ALL: Read the “Space Log Bulletins” sent via email.
ALL: Check Parent Portal for census information; attendance, progress reports, and laptop user agreement information. The website for this is gateschili.org/ParentPortalAccess.

Ask your child’s teacher about signing up for Neil Armstrong social media:
Neil Armstrong is an inclusive, friendly and close-knit neighborhood school. We embrace our rich traditions at the same time that we embrace the student centered, technology rich instruction that prepares and engages our students in life in our 21st Century. Our community is strong. We are proud of our diversity. We are committed to enthusiastic and active promotion of our District’s Moral Imperative Statement. Our Spartan Way and our joint commitment to our children knit us closely together. We invite you to join us in our efforts to create a joyful place for children to learn about their community, their world and the world yet to come
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us by calling the main office or e-mailing us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you very much for entrusting your child to our care.
Sincerely, and on behalf of the staff of Neil Armstrong Staff: Shine on!
