The construction crew has been doing a great job this summer.

Here are two pictures of the gym.  They tore it down to the studs and reinforced it for the seismic safety.

On a school business related topic: mark your calendars for Middle School Registration.  It is on August 25 (7am to 7 pm), August 26 (7:30am to 3:30pm), and August 27 (8am to noon).

We hope you are having a great start to your summer.  If you are looking for the office staff, we have moved across the street to the district office.  During the remodel, the best way to get a hold of us is either by email or calling the district office (541) 935-2253 x4201.  Our regular phone number has a voicemail, but we cannot answer that number until we are back in the building at the end of August.  Here are some pictures of the library during demolition.

Thank you!

To Parents and Guardians,

Last night, the school board approved the last day of school being June 9th.  It was not an easy decision to make but the construction team determined that FRMS remodel is at a high risk of not finishing on time.  The team asked to be in the building three days early.   The two main timeline concerns are around the seismic construction in the gym and the abatement process in the office area.

When making this decision, the board looked at the state required hours.  FRMS is still 12 hours over legal requirement.

The FRMS staff is sorry for any inconvenience this causes your family.  We hope these three days will allow us to start on time next year with an awesome library, classrooms, and office space.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the office.

Wednesday: At 6 pm there will be an 8th grade promotion meeting.  8th grade parents, please email (mfrench@fernridge.k12.or.us) or bring a baby picture to Mrs. French
