Please Wash & Rotate Masks

Our students and staff are doing a great job wearing their masks each day! As we get into normal routines during the school year, one routine we would like to highly encourage is mask washing. We are seeing some students coming to school with masks that have not been washed in a few days. Please consider having your student rotate masks throughout the week and start each day with a clean, fresh mask. Mask effectiveness is best with a clean, dry mask each day.

Live Streaming FHS Sport Events

You don't have to miss the action at our fall sporting events. How can you watch? The fall sports are live streamed and available on The Saber Roar YouTube channel. If you miss a live event, it is available on the channel to view. Go Sabers!

FHS Attendance - Late Arrivals/Early Dismissals

Late Arrivals - Students who arrive to a class within the first ten minutes of a block are marked tardy. Students who arrive after the first ten minutes are marked absent.

Early Dismissals - Students who are dismissed during the last ten minutes of class are marked “Leave Early” (LE) which does not count against their attendance. Students who are dismissed more than ten minutes prior to the end of a class are marked absent for that class.

Medical Appointments - If your student is absent from school due to a medical appointment, please submit a medical excuse to the attendance secretary from your provider so the absence can be marked medically excused (APTX). Medically excused absences do not count against students’ attendance. If not medically excused by the provider note the absence will be marked parent excused (PAX) and will count toward the 10 days allowed for parent excused absences.

A reminder that all absences, late arrivals & early dismissals should be reported using our new procedure with this form.


Please be sure to read the newest District Newsletter that comes out now every Friday. You can access all the issues here.
