Time for 2016-17 Registration for all FCS students

Registration for the 2016-17 school year will begin on Monday, April 4, 2016 through our online registration program, InfoSnap. SnapCodes for your returning students will be emailed to you on that date. If you do not receive a SnapCode email, you may obtain the student SnapCode at your school office. Students will not have schedules built at FHS until registration for the upcoming year has been completed.

2016-17 Scheduling

Most students should have already completed their schedule requests and talked with their grade-level counselors. It is EXTREMELY important for parents to make sure students have made the appropriate choices for next year during the request process. The actual 2016-17 FHS schedule and teacher assignments will be based on these requests. Please help us serve your children by making sure they complete this process correctly.

Northwest Shoals Community College Dual Enrollment

Northwest Shoals is offering numerous online academic dual enrollment courses for the 2016-17 school year for $198.00 a course. See your counselor or Mrs. Lovelace for information. Deadline to apply is April 19th. This is an incredible opportunity for our students.
