FPHS Parent and Student Memo

October 26, 2020

Dear Parents and Students,

  • Students, how are your GRADES? Quarter 1 ends on November 10th. If you are not currently passing all of your classes, make an appointment now to meet with your teachers during Office Hours to get help or jump into the HW Center for help in any subject area (link below). We know that remote school is difficult, and we all want to be back in school too. But, for now, we're in remote, so we need to make the best of it. You still need to pass your classes to earn your credits for graduation. If you're feeling overwhelmed, please reach out to your teachers or counselors. They can help!


Stay tuned for more information and details. We wish you all the very best. Stay safe and be well!

Parents and Guardians, this one is for YOU!

That is why we have partnered with counseling agencies to help provide additional support to students and families. If you would like help connecting with a counselor, please email Bonita Lee at blee@fpschools.org.


TWO GREAT RESOURCES BELOW:

1. Free FAFSA help for Seniors from trained and knowledgeable professionals.

Sincerely,

Ms. Lee

Assessment Center!

The Assessment Center is fully functional via Teams for any student who needs to make-up or retake an assessment. A link to the assessment center scheduling page is available on all teachers' Canvas pages and HERE. The link will direct students to the Bookings calendar so that they can schedule a time to take the assessment that works best for them. Students can also select the notification option in the scheduler to receive a reminder via email. We strongly suggest that you do this. Once the student schedules their assessment, they should notify their teacher, so the assessment and test codes are sent to Assessment Center staff.

FPHS Sports!!!

For the latest updates and information about 2020-21 high school sports, please visit the WIAA website HERE and watch the video from Mr. McNeil below.


For the most recent modified sport season calendar, visit HERE.


As families in the Franklin Pierce School District, there are a few items you can do to help you and your child to be ready to go for 2020-21 high school sports regardless of when that occurs:


  • Make sure your son or daughter has a current physical that has been completed within the last 2 years. If it expires within the next 3-4 months, we recommend getting that taken care of as soon as possible. If you have a question about your expiration date, Please email jmcneil@fpshools.org
  • If your son or daughter had a physical while at Ford, we have those on file at FPHS and they will be transferred over.
  • Follow the WIAA and Franklin Pierce HS on Facebook, Instagram, and twitter for continuous updates.
  • Connect with coaches of your sport. Coaches have been given permission to host online meetings with current and prospective athletes. We know they would love to connect with families and athletes to be able to begin sharing important information.
