Fife High News
New to Fife Public Schools Edition
1st Day of School Info for 11th and 12th Graders who are NEW to the Fife School District
The 1st Day Is Unique!
Welcome to Fife!
I am excited to welcome you to Fife High School! The 1st day of school is Thursday September 2nd, and it is a day designed primarily to welcome to the Trojan Family incoming Sophomores and new to Fife School District students... that's you!
For much of the 1st day the only students on campus will be our 10th graders, student leaders, and new to district students. We stagger our start with each grade level reporting at different times to slowly acclimate everyone to being back on campus.
It is very normal to feel anxious for the first day, I still get nervous for the start of every year too. I can actually relate to our situation, I moved my senior year to a new school myself, and I know how hard that can be. So on the first day we will help you find your classes and important places on campus, meet your teachers and staff, and begin meeting some new friends. I actually get an hour with you myself simply getting to meet you, so hopefully that helps relieve some stress.
Please read all the information in this newsletter carefully so you have a complete understanding of what your first day will look like! I am beyond excited to get to meet you and welcome you to your high school adventure.
At Fife we say, Fife For LIFE... this means that the day you walk on our campus, even if you are just moving to our school, you are part of our Fife family forever.
I look forward to meeting you!
What time do I start School?
Where do I go when I get to school? When you arrive just head through the red gates and you will see people greeting you and pointing you in the right direction. When you arrive you will head to your Family class where you will get a copy of your class schedule, meet your Family teacher, and learn about the rest of the day. Look in Skyward to see what your Family teacher and room number is before you arrive, but don't worry we will have people helping you out if you don't know that prior to coming.
What is Family class? Family is simply what we call our advisory period. You will have this same teacher for the next three years, which really helps you get to know this teacher really well!
Transportation, how do I get to school?
Transportation. Buses will be running on our normal bus schedule. Press this Link For Bus Route INFO.
Student Drop Off: if you get dropped off it is important (especially with construction and with the new Elementary school now on site) that you drop your student off in the correct parking lot. See the image below.
What should I wear the first day?
- We will be outside quite a bit, so be prepared for the weather.
- Please meet dress code:
- Undergarments must be covered at all times.
- Clothing will cover torso, midriff, chest, and backside, and have sleeves or straps;

At Fife We Say Hello!
Before COVID the greeting would have been accompanied by a hand shake or fist bump, while that will look different, you will still be welcomed each day as you enter school and as you arrive at each class. Do your part and look people in the eye and say hi!
Will I get a copy of my schedule?
