Dear Parents/Guardians:

We would be pleased if you would accept an invitation to a special orientation
program for our prospective seventh grade students and their parents or guardians.
The orientation will take place virtually on Thursday, February 4, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.

The link will be available on the website. From this link
attendees may view the webinar, make comments, and ask questions.
The administration and staff will present an overview of the curriculum offerings,
student schedules, academic standards, and preview of the courses and programs that
your child may experience at Dodd. The evening promises to be an excellent
opportunity for students and parents to learn how students can reach their maximum
potential and be successful at our school. Students are encouraged to attend online
accompanied by their parents or guardians.

We look forward to meeting with you and sharing the goals and aspirations that we
have for the class of 2023.


Ms. Johane Ligonde


Grade 6 -12 Change of Instructional Mode Link
Dear Freeport Grade 6 – 12 Families,

As part of the District Reopening Plan, you were given the option to choose an In-person/Hybrid Learning Model or a fully Remote Learning Model for your child/children at the start of each marking period. This means that students who chose the Remote Learning Model may now return to the In-Person/Hybrid Learning Model and students who chose the In-Person/Hybrid Learning Model may choose to move to the Remote Learning Model. At this time, families of students in grades 6 - 12 may choose to change learning models. The change in your child’s learning model will occur on February 1st. Pre- K through grade 5 students will have this opportunity at the start of their next marking period in March.

There is no action necessary on your part if you do not want a change of learning model. Please complete THIS FORM only if you wish to change your child's instructional program. A form must be filled out for each child in your family requesting a change. For planning purposes, all forms must be returned by 5:00 PM on January 22nd. We will be unable to accept changes after this date. All changes to instructional programs will be in effect from February 1st through April 16th. In April, you will be given the next opportunity to change your child’s chosen learning model.

We appreciate your collaboration and support as we continue to provide our students with the best educational opportunities available. As we move forward with any new phase, we will continue to carefully follow all the required Department of Health guidelines. The health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority. Please remember M-S-W: Wear your Masks, Social distance, Wash Your Hands.

Atkinson’s Mission Statement

The Atkinson School Community believes that all students can and will meet standards of excellence.  The school is committed to developing a partnership with families to ensure children’s cognitive, social, and creative growth.  The Atkinson School Community is committed to creating an environment which will nurture a child’s desire to become a life long learner by engaging students in productive activities.


Principal’s Message:

Welcome to Caroline G. Atkinson Intermediate School, where 5th and 6th grade Freeport students rise to high expectations and become independent thinkers. Our students learn in a rigorous, diverse and multicultural environment which prepares them to be successful, upstanding citizens and career and college ready.

Atkinson School’s academic focus is aligned to the Common Core Learning Standards. Our wide-ranging curricula afford a strong foundation for students’ emergence into the higher grades. Not only are Atkinson students exposed to challenging academics, but they are encouraged to celebrate their skills and talents outside the classroom as well. Students nurture their talents through the Arts and inclusive clubs like: Band and Mariachi, Orchestra, Chorus and Select Coral, Step and Drill Team, Drama Club, Odyssey of the Mind, Mathletes, Liberty Program, Future Problem Solving, the Atkinson Afterschool Program, and Enrichment to Excellence (E2E) Extended School Day Grant.

We believe in success through partnership. Communication between school and home is vital in the success of the whole child. By working closely with the PTA and pioneering Grupo de Padres, we are able to keep parents informed of upcoming events, important dates and issues.

Wonderful things are happening at Atkinson! Students participate in the annual Hispanic Heritage assembly, 5th Grade Sports Night, winter and spring Festival of the Arts, Family Fun Night, Career Day, Field Day, 6th Grade Moving Up Ceremony, and 6th Grade Talent Show. The Atkinson community promotes a spirited environment for student learning and overall success.
