Dear Barton families,

I am writing to make you aware of a staff change in your child’s classroom. Norah Antil has departed from Clara Barton School.  We thank her for her time at Barton Open School.

We are in the process of seeking a long-term substitute to fill this teacher’s position through the end of the school year. I want to assure you that we will continue to maintain a high standard of teaching and learning with as little disruption to routines as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call our school office at 612.668.3580.


Diane Bagley, Assistant Principal
