From the Principal
Dear Fryelands Families,
Parent Conferences will be October 25th-29th
Look for information about parent conference sign-ups to come home next week.
If you have questions that need to be answered now, please call or email your child’s teacher today and we will respond within 24 hours.
Fire Prevention Month
Please talk with your children about what to do at home if there is ever a fire and practice evacuation routes and family meeting places outside. It is also a great time to change your smoke detector batteries and replace smoke detectors that are more than ten years old.
10 Fire Safety Rules for Students and Families
1. Don't play with matches and lighters.
2. Ask your parents to install smoke detectors on every floor and in the sleeping areas of your home.
3. Remind your parents to test your smoke detectors every month.
4. When your parents change the time on your clocks for Daylight Savings, ask them to change your smoke alarm batteries.
5. In case of fire: DON'T HIDE, GO OUTSIDE!
6. To escape during a fire; Fall & Crawl. It is easier to breathe if you stay low while getting out.
7. If your clothes are on fire; Stop, Drop, and Roll until the fire is out.
8. Have an escape plan and practice it with your family. Find two ways out of every room in case one way is blocked by fire or smoke.
9. Choose a meeting place outside, such as a big tree or the end of the driveway, so you will know that everyone has gotten out safely. NEVER go back into a burning building for any reason.
10. Know your local emergency number.

The online registration form will have a space for you to input insurance information but there will be no charge to you and there are no copay requirements. The testing is absolutely free.

Health Room News
Fall is here and that means rainy, wet recesses!
It is helpful to send a change of clothes with your student in their backpack in case they get wet at recess.
The health room is also in need of pants in all sizes. Sweatpants or leggings work best as they are the most versatile. If you've cleaned out closets recently, we'd love to take these off your hands!

Student Race & Ethnicity Data Collection
Recently, there was a change in federal and state law that affects how student ethnicity and race data is collected by school districts. This change now requires schools to have this data recorded for every student.
As a result, we are required to ask families to verify their child as either Hispanic/Latino or not Hispanic/Latino AND by one or more of 217 racial groups. We ask that families please respond to the two questions in Family Access for each of their students currently enrolled.
While families are not required to verify the race and ethnicity of their students, we are required as a school district to submit this data to comply with federal and state law. We will make two attempts to reach families with the request to submit their child's ethnicity and race category. If there is no response, schools are required to make the ethnicity and race selection for the student.
Do we have current contact information for you? Do you have Family Access yet?
Family Access is a great internet tool for parents to stay connected to their child and the school. As a parent, you can verify attendance, check for updated contact information, and view testing data on your child. You are also able to complete your 2021-2022 Enrollment Verification through Family Access. If you have any questions, please call the office at (360)804-3400. Thank you!
This year, students at Monroe School District have a lot to look forward to when it comes to mealtime. For the 2021-2022 school year, meals will be offered to students in all grade levels at no cost, thanks to flexibilities provided by the USDA’s National School Lunch Program. This allows everyone to enjoy 1 free breakfast & 1 free lunch per day.
All families, however, are encouraged to fill out the annual Free and Reduced Price Meal Application as eligibility provides many other benefits, including Pandemic EBT benefits for your family, no student fees for high school programs, free student entrance to all ASB extracurricular events (dances, athletics, etc) and reduced fees for family members to attend extracurricular events (athletics, plays, etc). Filling out this application also provides critical funding for our schools.
What’s on the Menu? Nutrislice, an innovative app, students, parents and faculty have access to school menus, including nutrition information, allergens and photos. Nutrislice can be downloaded for free from the App store (iOS) or Google Play (Android) and is available on desktop and mobile devices.
Menus are also available at https://monroeschools.nutrislice.com/
We encourage you to "like" and "follow" this page. We post morning announcements, nightly reading, and other fun events. It’s fun to see Fryelands Falcons participating by posting on our Facebook page.
