Returning Students

Returning students maintain their prior year’s free or reduced eligibility for the first 30 school days, or until a new application is processed. If a returning student does not have a new application processed by October 15, 2020, they will automatically be transferred to a paid account on the next school day. Families are responsible for any charges incurred.

Skyward Update, We Need your updated info!

Your child's school will use the current information on their info screen to send mailings home, email notifications regarding school events & information, or in the event of an emergency situation call parents or emergency contacts.

  • If you do not have one already families should sign up for their Skyward account to have access to school communication and student information: skyward.fifeschools.com

  • Update your contact information (ie; home address, Email address, cell phone number, emergency contact numbers).

  • To look at the information in Skyward log into your Skyward account, then go to Family Access, scroll down to the Student Info tab and look over ALL your information.

  • Make sure your student's name is spelled correctly. The way your child's name appears on this screen should be their legal name as this is used to print their high school diploma. (The middle name will only appear as the first letter of the name so you'll want to make sure that the full middle name is spelled correctly before diplomas are printed.)

  • Contact Mrs. Kilcup, FHS Registrar, to request changes to your student's contact information. pkilcup@fifeschools.com or 253.517.1100 x24569
