If you haven't already done so, you will be receiving a letter in the next few days, via the USPS from the office with information regarding the specific needs for each of your students. If there are medical or religious reasons a child cannot be vaccinated, call the school office for further information. For more information please check the ASD Health Services website.

Please Note: Exemption Requirement Changes.

* All religious exemptions must be documented on official State of Alaska Religious Exemption Form

* All religious exemption forms must be updated annually

* All religious exemption forms must be notarized


A Little Goes a Long Way

In 2014 Family Partnership staff and students set a new FPCS record and collected a little over $1500 for local non-profit organizations. This year we hope to set a new record. Our goal for 2016 is $2000.

In case contributing to the many worthy charitable causes and strengthening our community isn't enough of an incentive, Principal Carroll has stepped it up a notch and agreed to wear her hair teal/turquoise not just for a week but for an entire month if we meet our goal.

Contact our FPCS Charitable Giving Coordinator: Teresa Hintze for more information about how to donate.
