Spring Break is Approaching....It's Time to Unplug!

I hope this week's newsletter finds you and your family safe and healthy. There are only five days to go before spring break, and my wish for you and your family is rest, good health and relaxation. While vacation plans may have changed, there are still ways for you to rest and enjoy your time at home. I would like to once again thank you for your support of your children and our teachers during this challenging time. As we continue to adjust to delivering online instruction, we continue to respond to your feedback and make adjustments along the way. This week, we have created our new "FES Virtual Learning Site" where you will find all grade levels in one convenient place. From this site, you will have the ability to click on your child's grade level and gain access to digital learning resources and lessons. We hope you find the site beneficial and easier to navigate. You can access the link at fescubs.org or by clicking the following link: https://bit.ly/33YE3YH
