The 1st Day Is Unique!

Dear Fife High School,

I am excited to welcome back the class of 2022 to the campus of Fife High School! This year we will be staggering our start with each grade level reporting at different times to slowly acclimate everyone to being back on campus. The 1st day of school for seniors will actually be Friday September 3rd! Thursday will be the start day for our Sophomores and juniors.

In person!

I'm so thankful that we will be seeing you in person. While we will not be able to do some of our traditional first day activities due to COVID rules, like an all school assembly, for example, we will still make the most of what we can do to make our start of school meaningful. That said, I can tell you that this year's first day will be better than last years, which was spent in a 3 hour zoom session!

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.

Get 'em Trojans!

Brandon Bakke

What time do I start School on the 1st day?

12th Grade- Seniors

12th Graders begin school on Friday and 7:40am.

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 the courtyard where we will have tables set up to pass out updated class schedules. Once you get your schedule you will head to 1st period.

If you are a little anxious remembering where things are on campus, don't worry, we will have a lot of people out helping you find your way.

Transportation, how do I get to school?

If you ride the bus in the morning, buses will be running on our normal bus schedule. Press this Link For Bus Route INFO. If you need to ride the bus on the 1st day please report to the cafeteria when you arrive on campus.

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.

Meet Mr. Peterson- Campus Safety

Fife High School has a new staff member this year, Mr. Peterson. Mr. Peterson is a Campus Safety Officer. He is someone who you will probably see right away, and will be present on campus each day working with our students proactively helping us prepare and respond to any safety or security issues. Mr. Peterson will help monitor the campus, assist students, and help make sure everyone is going where they are supposed to go. When you see him, be sure to say hello!
