Wondering if the yearbook is happening this year? 👉 Yes


This school year will be talked about forever. Our yearbook program is working hard to put together a historic book that will be looked back upon to remember one of the most unpredictable school years of all time.

Order today so we make sure there are enough copies for everyone -

This year’s book will be delivered in August instead of in June. This will allow more time for the yearbook to be made.

If you would still like to submit a photo of your child for the yearbook, you can attach one to this link:

Friedell Families,

We are at the end of our school year, and the end of the Hy-Vee Receipts program. Simply by turning in your receipts to the office, by May 28th, we can enter them to Hy-Vee for a donation! Please consider sending your student to school with Hy-Vee Receipts for the office!


Families - we have a couple of tech reminders for students and parents.

  • Students do need their iPad fully charged each day at school
  • Students also need earbuds/headphones each day at school

We have recently noticed a trend where iPads are not charged, or students are not bringing earbuds/headphones. Please make certain your students have these items daily. If you need help with making this happen, please reach out to the Friedell office for support!

When I have a sick child:

  • If your child has any of the symptoms listed on the COVID screening tool, s/he should be staying home from school.
  • If you have multiple children, and one is staying home because they are ill, all children in your family are to be kept home.
  • Please inform the school of any symptoms your child is experiencing.
  • If you have questions about what to do or next steps, just give us a call. We are happy to guide you.
