What's Going On In The World Of FA-PBG

Solar Eclipse

Thursday all middle school students received a permission slip to view the eclipse this coming Monday. If they did not turn in their permission slip to their science teacher Friday, they must turn it in first thing Monday morning in order to participate. Elementary students will not be participating in any school-based live viewing of the eclipse.


Students who are absent due to safety concerns associated with the eclipse will receive an excused absence. Parents picking students up early must do so before 12:00 PM.

Tardy Students

Schools begins each day at 7:45 AM for elementary students and 8:45 AM for middle school students. It is so important that all students are in their seats by their respective start times. Being just five minutes late each day equates to 15 hours of lost instructional time each year. Beginning August 28th, parents arriving anytime after 7:45 AM (elementary) or 8:45 AM (middle school) will need to park their car and come in to sign their students in as tardy. This includes students coming in after doctor's appointments. Please use this next week to determine the best time for you to leave your house and make it in time.

Reminders & Announcements

Elementary students should not be dropped off before 7:15 AM. We do not have sufficient faculty on site at this time to supervise students. The office will open and students will be welcomed on to campus at 7:15 AM.
