Airline Drive Academy September 2021 Principal’s Message

The following welcome message from Principal Barb Lounello was sent to families of students attending Airline Drive Academy at the start of September 2021.

Welcome families, students and staff to the 2021-2022 school year!

It is with great privilege and excitement that I welcome you as the principal of Airline Drive Academy once again. I am ready to be back supporting students, families, and teachers.

At Airline Drive Academy we believe in building positive relationships and taking care of one another, as we foster a culture of care and belonging at our school. This school year, as last year, we will practice social distancing, mask wearing and disinfecting protocols. Fortunately, our students and staff have become resident experts at all of these and will rise to the occasion once again! Last school year was truly a memorable year and COVID-19 did not stop the learning, connections, friendships, and relationships from happening. We know this school year will be a whole new opportunity for students to continue on their path of learning and growth in all areas, and they will create wonderful new memories at Airline Drive Academy. Our community of educators will provide your children with opportunities to grow, learn, and succeed each and every day.

We are excited to begin another year at Airline. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with questions at any time at or 518-464-6330.
