The Thursday (October 8th)conferences are from 8am to noon. The teachers will be in their classrooms. Both days, conferences are a drop in basis (no appointments). If you are unable to meet with teachers during conference time, feel free to contact teachers directly and set something up at a time that works for both of you. Feel to free to call the school if you have any questions.
First quarter Progress Reports are being sent out on Friday. Most of you should be receiving them early next week. If you have not received them by the end of next week, please call the school. When reading the Progress Report, notice the grade under OP is the overall grade for the class. The overall grade reflect both academic knowledge and behaviors. Some examples of behaviors it includes would be work completion and class participation. The AP grade is the academic grade. The academic grade reflects how your child is mastering the content. Not all classes have an academic grade.
8 cases of head lice has been detected at FRMS. The lice has been contained to mostly one social group. FRMS staff has checked every student in that social group and any other students who would like to be check. Head lice is mainly spread through direct head-to-head contact but also from sharing hats, brushes and other personal items. Head lice is a problem in many communities and do not reflect poor hygiene or social status. Please help do your part to prevent the spread of this communicable condition by checking your child(ren) daily for the next few weeks, and on a regular basis thereafter. Lice infestation is much easier to treat if caught early.
If you should discover a case of head lice, please notify FRMS. Notify the parents of your child’s playmates.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.
