Thank you for all you do to support our school, students, and staff! This will be the last newsletter of the year, but for those returning to FMES I will be sending out a mid-summer newsletter to provide summer updates.
I can't thank you all enough for all that you have done this year to support our school. This has truly been a year unlike any other and I am proud of our staff and students for continuing to exemplify all of the wonderful Team FMES teamwork behaviors. While we are excited about summer, we are also looking forward to what next year has in store for all of our wonderful students!

Note from Nurse Caldwell
Parents if your student has any medications in the health room, please make sure to pick them up by 12:00 PM Friday, June 18th. Any medications not picked up will be destroyed after that date.
Additionally, if your student has any medical condition listed in power school that may require the assistance of the nurse or special restrictions while at school, please check your students backpack for a packet from Nurse Caldwell. The forms enclosed should be completed over the summer by your student's physician (and parent) and returned to your school nurse at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year.

FMVA Student Device Return
Please return devices, along with chargers, to FMES at 192 Springfield Parkway by 12:00pm on June 18th.
Devices must be checked in before the end of the school year for inventory and updates, even if your student is continuing in the FMVA next year. You will have the opportunity to request devices when the 2021-2022 school year begins.
If you are unavailable to turn in devices on either June 17th or June 18th (the last two days of school - both are 1/2 days for students), please contact FMES at 547-7546 to make arrangements.
21-22 Bus Rider Registration
This year has brought about a new challenge in our Junior Jacket Community. With masks, visitor restrictions, and the inability to meet in large groups as a school community, it has been difficult to get to know one another. We wanted to continue building our sense of community and bring everyone together like the amazing family we are. So we decided to do a little project called "Bee-hind the Mask".
Each week, from now until the end of the school year, we will spotlight several staff members, using a picture and their answers to a fun survey we sent out for everyone to complete. Hopefully we will all be able to be together in person again soon, but until then, please enjoy getting to know our Junior Jacket Staff a little bit better!
This week we are featuring Adrienne Shipp (2nd Grade Teacher), Angela Stulginsky (Occupational Therapist), and Michelle Walker (Technology Teacher).
District COVID Protocols
If your student is going to be absent, please email their teacher and copy the attendance clerk, Erin Swetta at email@example.com. Included in the note should be your student’s first and last name and the reason for their absence. If the absence is related to an illness, please also copy Nurse Caldwell at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your student is seen by a doctor, please send in the doctor’s excuse with your student or email them directly to Ms. Swetta. Thank you for helping us keep up to date and accurate records.
