Ferson Creek eNews
January 7, 2022
From the Principal...Kristy McKnight
Welcome to 2022! I hope everyone had a fun and restful winter break. I know that my family really enjoyed sleeping in!
Monday the 3rd was a School Improvement Day for staff. Teachers at Ferson spent their day analyzing student data, reflecting on student growth and setting second semester learning goals. Additionally, our teams focused on building their long-range content area plans for the remainder of the year, and developing short-term plans for the first weeks in January. Our teachers have really set the stage for a successful second semester.
I wanted to highlight of couple key calendar dates. There is no school on Monday, the 17th and Tuesday the 18th due to Martin Luther King Jr Day and a School Improvement Day. Additionally, our January Early Release is Wednesday, January 26th. Elementary students will be dismissed at 2:10 pm on this day.
Stay warm this weekend!

E-LEARNING PLAN AND EMERGENCY DAYS
The School Board has approved an E-Learning plan that gives the district the option to offer remote learning in place of emergency days. Currently, our last day of school is Tuesday, May 24, which is the week before Memorial Day. As we move into the winter months, we want to update you on the plan for how the district will manage emergency days and e-learning days.
If we experience inclement weather, the first three days will be “snow days” that will be made up at the end of the school year on May 25, 26, and 27 as needed.
Subsequent emergency days will be remote days so the last attendance day will still be before Memorial Day.
If there is a long stretch of inclement weather (blizzard, polar vortex, etc.), we may split the days into “snow days” and e-learning days so as to not have too many non-attendance days in a row.
- Monday, January 17th - Martin Luther King Jr Day, No School
- Tuesday, January 18th - School Improvement Day, No School for Students
- Wednesday, January 26th - Early Release, elementary dismissed at 2:10 pm
