Dear Fife Families,


We got off to a good start transitioning to our new schedule last week. I shared with the students on campus how excited I was to see their faces, but that my joy is still tempered knowing that ALL of the Trojans are not yet back. I continue to look forward to this day with great hope and anticipation.


In this edition of Fife High News read below about the State's COVID 19 survey that students will be taking. Also of note, seniors learn about the new Senior Countdown Newsletter.


Hybrid Parents, if you have not yet set up your student's phone number in the Daily Symptom checker system, below is a reminder on how to do that. The more students who have this accessible on their own phones the faster our check in will go in the morning.


Thank you so much!


Get 'Em Trojans,


Brandon Bakke

Principal

State law requires that FHS have an attendance check in on Asynchronous learning days (days you are not with a teacher).
  • Each morning on your Asynch days you will get an email front the attendance office prompting you, the student, to fill out the check in form for the day.
  • EACH day a new link and is ONLY good for that day.
  • Simply check the link to the form, fill it out, and hit submit.
  • This must be done by 12PM each of these days and will only take you a few seconds to complete.

This week students will be taking the State's COVID-19 Student Survey. The purpose of the survey is to collect information to help teachers, school leaders, and community partners better understand how to meet the needs of youth. This survey asks questions about student’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic. This survey is optional for the students and is anonymous. They also can skip any questions they don't want to respond to. Information gathered in this survey will help the State of Washington identify what resources are needed to meet the needs of our students.

Troubleshooting setting up the The Daily Symptom Checker! (Attestation)

  1. Reminder for parent/guardians to input your students cell phone number entered so you can get the daily text reminder.

  2. Be sure your parents are looking for the email titled: School Health Check

  3. In order to get your phone number imputed, you have to answer “yes” I’m coming to school that day. If you say “no” you won’t have the option until the next time your scheduled to come in.

  4. Each day an EMAIL and LINK is sent, it ONLY works for that DAY (you can't use a link sent in a previous day email).

  5. More troubleshooting: be sure to check junk mail if you parent has not seen it in their inbox.
