Students are welcome to play on the FMA playground starting at 7:30AM on school days. School grounds are closed until 7:30AM, when adult supervision of the playground begins. The first bell rings at 7:45AM every morning. After that, students have fifteen minutes to get to class. After the second bell at 8AM, students are marked tardy. Please help your FMA scholar(s) to arrive on time! Everyone deserves a full day at FMA.

Parents who pick up their children should pick them up in the gym (except for preschool and JK students, who can be picked up in their classrooms).

Extended Day
The 8-hour day allows students to receive instruction in a wide range of subjects, including Spanish language (every day except Wednesday, when the school day ends at 2PM rather than 3:45PM. The extended day also allows more time for field trips around Cambridge and Boston as well as double recess!

Parking
Parking around FMA is limited, but there are a few spots reserved for pick-up and drop-off right in front of the school on Harvard St. Parents who drive also often find parking on Boardman St., which is parallel to Windsor St., or further down Harvard St. near Izzy’s Park.
