Good Evening Linden Families.
This is principal Ray Garcia with an important announcement for the upcoming school year. The Malden Public School district is still working on the reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year. While we do not know exactly what this fall will look like for Linden, we do know that health and safety will be a top priority. We understand that COVID-19 has created health risks and financial challenges that make shopping difficult. For this reason we are considering a temporary change in the uniform policy for the 2020-2021 school year.
The Linden School Site Council would like your feedback before voting on this question. Please let us know if you would like uniforms to be required or optional by completing the survey below
For the 2020-2021 school year I want:
Uniforms to be required of all students. (All students will wear a uniform.)
Uniforms to be optional for all students “You choose.” (Each family will be able to choose if they want to wear a uniform or not wear a uniform.)

The survey is open now and will close Wednesday evening after the forum.
The potential policy change is being discussed as a temporary measure by the School Site Council for the 2020-2021 school year only due to the difficulties and limited access to uniforms and laundry facilities amid COVID-19. Please enter any additional comments you would like to share with the Linden School Site Council on the survey regarding uniforms.
We will also hold a forum on Wednesday July 29th, at 6:00 pm for families to voice their concerns and opinions about uniforms. We understand that families have questions and concerns about the start of the school year but going to limit the discussion to uniforms only. The link to the forum will be posted on the Linden school website and the Linden Facebook page.
