FBMS Weekly Leadership Message

December 7, 2018

IMPORTANCE OF DAILY SCHOOL ATTENDANCE

Encouraging regular school attendance is a powerful ways you can prepare your child for success-both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child learn the importance of responsibility & develop healthy life habits. Students who attend school regularly will be more academically successful!


Keep up the good work getting to school on time everyday!

Cold and Flu season is here. Illnesses that present with fevers, respiratory symptoms, and GI symptoms can spread easily in school. Please help us keep FBMS healthy this winter by adhering to the 24-hour symptoms free policy and allowing time for your children to recuperate following illnesses before sending them back to school.
