FHS Updates

FHS 2nd Picture Day on Tuesday

FHS will have School and Sport Pics in the building again this week to update our student yearbook photos and issue new IDs. Photos will be taken during the school day on Tuesday, November 3rd. Teachers have a schedule of class times assigned for photos and will escort their students to the photo session. We will have time on Tuesday for students who may have missed their assigned time last week.

Families of excluded/quarantined students - if your student missed our photo sessions we will schedule a retake day and send that information in a future bulletin.

Ordering information will be emailed by School and Sport Pics. We worked with the company to organize how to take photos while maintaining safety and the least academic interruption.

Chromebooks Fees

Over the past two weeks, 9th and 12th grade students swapped their old chromebook for a new chromebook. The new chromebook will be their device for the rest of their time at FHS so it is important that they take good care of it.

If your student did not turn in any part of their old chromebook such as the power cable or case, they have until November 6 to turn in the missing items to the Tech Depot in the library. After this date, any missing items or any damage to the old chromebook (such as broken screen, keys missing, etc.) will result in a charge being applied to their student fee account. Any questions about your students Chromebook can be directed to the HS Tech Depot at

Please note that all winter sports practices and scheduled events are tentative and will likely change frequently. FHS and the SEC Conference may have strict limitations for fan attendance (or no fan attendance) for all sports and activities.
