Message from Dr. Reilly

Farney Families,

Please take a few minutes and read the important message from the district linked below. It details grading for MP4 and EOY averages. It also reviews important information about graduations and proms. As stated, once plans are finalized for item retrieval and returns those details will be shared with our school community. We appreciate your patience.

Do you need to talk to Ms. Schmitzer, Ms. Carey, or Coach Roe? If so, drop in during their office hours! Large Group-Zoom Meeting ID is 660-300-2777, password PEAM.

Counselors’ Corner

Hello Farney Families,

As we approach the end of April, remember that this is a journey we are all traveling together. Although we won’t be going back to campus the remainder of this school year, please know that we’re here to help in any way we can! Please don’t hesitate to reach out. Continue to use this time as an opportunity to build those special memories with your family and strengthen your relationships with one another. It has been wonderful seeing our students through the ZOOM meetings and we will continue to pop into those whenever possible. We miss our Falcons!!

Our google voice numbers receive calls and texts, so feel free to contact us.
