Dear FMS Families,
Thank you again for all your support as school has closed. We've worked to put everything you need in one place to help navigate this time. Dr. Cowherd's note below provides information regarding our extended closure through the remainder of the year. We will be working on getting you more information and answers to questions soon. Thank you for all you are doing at home during this time. We will continue to review, reinforce and enrich skills while building relationships.
I've had several ask what kids should be doing each day? You have to personalize this to meet the needs of your family, but I would suggest a little bit of academic time each day. Teachers have continued to push out digital resources and there are non-tech resources below. The newsletters below will also help. If you need schedule ideas, there are multiple ideas on the Covid-19 tab of the FPS website. It can all be overwhelming, but just remember there is no perfect way to do this, just the way that works best for you and your kids.
If you feel more is needed for your particular child, please contact your child’s teacher, we are glad to provide additional materials. ALL teachers, PreK - 12, have daily office hours scheduled from 2 pm - 3 pm. The teachers are there to help with questions, schedules, create an individualized plan for your child, or just talk. Each building principal is also available for additional support where needed. The email address for each teacher/principal is listed on the FPS website under the Our Schools tab.
We are honored to serve the best middle schoolers in the state. Thank you again for all you do! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need anything!
Mrs. Houf and Ms. Hogan
