Ferndale Middle Parent Update
May 23 - May 27
From the Desk of Our Proud Principal
Greetings Trojan Family,
This is a message from your Proud Principal, Leslie Kinard.
We will began collecting devices, Chromebooks and ThinkPads, during homeroom on Monday, May 16, 2022. All devices must be returned to homeroom teachers as soon as possible. They will be required for End of Grade testing this year. Please have your student bring all GCS issued devices and chargers.
Students taking Math 2 will test Wednesday, May 25th. The first day of large group testing will be Tuesday, May 31st for 8th grade Science. Wednesday and Thursday (June 1st and 2nd) students will take either their Math or Language Arts assessment. We need all students to arrive before 9:30 on all test days. Students arriving after testing has begun will not be allowed to test.
As a district and school, we are taking every precaution to ensure the continued safety of our students. Here's how you can help:
- If your student is sick, please keep them at home. Our teachers will be updating assignments on Canvas. Students experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should stay home and get a test for COVID-19 on day five.
- If you suspect or confirm that your student has COVID-19, please report it immediately by contacting the school at 336-819-2855 or emailing our data manager Ms. Pierce.
