Library Books are Due Back

All elementary library books are due back on May 31st (but if you are reading this today, please return them as soon as possible tomorrow!). Middle school and High school books are due back June 3rd. Please look for any missing books in cars, under furniture, in your child’s classroom and return them to school. Families will receive a bill over summer for any library materials that are not returned. If items are found over the summer they can be returned to the ECC District Office and student accounts will be adjusted. If families would like to provide a replacement copy instead of paying for the item, the replacement copy may be sent to school in the fall. Thank you!

FPS Transportation Survey

This past Wednesday, all families were sent an FPS Transportation Survey message. Please take the time to complete this survey once per child that was enrolled during this 2021-22 school year. This survey gives us data on who utilized our district transportation for state reports and the same survey also helps to communicate your bus riding needs for next year. Please click here to complete the survey before Friday, June 3rd at 11:59pm.


Notes:

  • If your student is currently a senior, please select Graduate and Does Not Require Bussing for the 22-23 school year

If your student will be driven to and from school, please DO NOT select transportation needed as a backup plan. Transportation can be added at any time during the school year by using this Bus Route Change or Addition Form

2022-23 FHS Course List/Future Scheduling Info

All families of students currently in grades 8-11 should have received their list of scheduled classes for the 2022-23 school year via email toward the end of last week. As indicated in the letter accompanying the course list, changes should be minimal due to thoughtful course selections back in winter; however, if there is a change that needs to be requested, students must submit the completed bright pink course change request form (available in Student Services), due back to Student Services by 3 p.m. on Fri., June 3. Any change is based on space availability, academic/career plans, and schedule options and cannot be guaranteed, but FHS counselors will try their best to accommodate requests and to let students know the outcome via school email by summer break. Change requests will NOT be accepted after June 3, including during the summer or at the start of school in fall. Students do not need an appointment to request a change, as they just need to submit the form, and changes will not be made without the completed form. We anticipate that detailed student schedules, including rooms, hours, teachers, etc. will be available to access on PowerSchool in mid- to late-August once again this year.

Summer Homework for Honors and AP Courses

This week, students in grades 8-11 should check the link in the email accompanying their list of future scheduled courses for information on any summer homework for AP or honors courses. The summer homework document is also linked on the FHS School Counselors website, so it can be accessed online at any time.
