Packets are Locked!

Sponsors - As of this morning we have a small group of students who have still not met the State of Alaska School Immunization requirements.

A few weeks ago we sent notices to parents alerting them to their student's status and requesting specific information.

Debbie will be sending you an e-mail with the names of your sponsor students who are still out of compliance. Please work with them to get the required forms into our office by Wednesday, December 9th.

Student packets have been locked. Parents will not be able to get into their packets and the business office will not fulfill any order or reimbursement requests. Since this is a State requirement, we will have no choice but to administratively withdraw any non-compliant students from program.

Thank you for your assistance!

Still Missing Dongle

Help! The dongle that we use to connect our laptops to the smart board still missing. If you know where it is hiding, would you please help it find its way back home?

Business Cards

If you you haven't already done so and would like to update your ASD/FPCS Business card, please go into "district connect" under "other resources" to fill out the template. This is a wonderful way to help your families and our students stay connected. It's also great for those times when you are out and about in the community and have the opportunity to tell other's about the great things our teachers and students do.

We need your help. In just a little over 2 months, we've gone through an entire pallet of copier paper (10 cases). Out next order is not due to arrive until the middle of January (and that has to last us until the end of May). Please monitor your use of the copier.
