Ferndale Middle Parent Update
March 28 - April 1
From the Desk of Our Proud Principal
Greetings Trojan Family,
This is a message from your Proud Principal, Leslie Kinard.
Monday, March 28th marks the beginning of the fourth quarter. That means students are in the final stretch of learning for this school year. We will be preparing for EOGs and EOCs and we need students who are well at school every day.
Interim Assessments and NWEA
This week and next week your students will take their interim and NWEA assessments. We will be changing the school schedule to create the best testing environment for our students but also so students get practice in a Mock EOG setting. Please make sure that your student arrives on time and that he or she brings their charged device to school each day. Students will need their device in order to take the assessments. These assessments will help teachers make sure your students are prepared for the final EOG exam.
One Card and Devices
Please make sure your students brings their One Card daily along with their device. All of our FMS students have been issued both.
Families, we need your help. Please assist us by monitoring your student's social media, if you allow them to have it. Sit down with your student and preview the content on their pages and the conversations they are having in group chats with other students. Your vigilance will help us ensure that students are making good choices while using those platforms.
As a district and school, we are taking every precaution to ensure the continued safety of our students. Here's how you can help:
- If your student is sick, please keep them at home. Our teachers will be updating assignments on Canvas. Students experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should stay home and get a test for COVID-19 on day five.
- If you suspect or confirm that your student has COVID-19, please report it immediately by contacting the school at 336-819-2855 or emailing our data manager Ms. Pierce.
