Late Lunches:

If you child forgets lunch you may drop off lunch in the bins outside the office by 11:00 a.m.  If your child’s lunch is not here by 11:00, they will have to “charge” a lunch and parents will have to reimburse the cafeteria the next day.   Please DO NOT put glass containers in your student’s lunch boxes. We have already had several accidents with glass this year. Having a glass container at school is a real safety hazard.

Reminders about Independent Study Contracts:

Per Board Policy 6158: 

  • Short term voluntary Independent Study (IS) Contracts may extend for not less than five (5) and not more than (10) consecutive school days. 
  • Students may only have one (1) IS per school year. 
  • Students may only have three (3) in their entire K-12 school experience in FUSD.

  • No Independent Study contracts are issued the first twenty (20) days of the school year or the last twenty (20) days of the school year. 
  • Students who do not successfully complete the assigned work from a previous Independent Study will not be eligible for another IS.
  • Teachers must be given at least 10 days’ notice to prepare the material for an IS.

On behalf of all students,

Principal Chuck Graves
