FIS will have an “Early Dismissal” from school on Tuesday, March 14th. As of right now, the temperatures will be high enough to allow for safe travel in the morning. However, as the temperature drops, it could create hazardous road conditions during the evening commute. Fishers Island resident students will be dismissed to either walk home or for parent pick-up at 12:25 pm. We notified the Fishers Island Ferry that our Connecticut students would take the 12:45p ferry from Fishers to land in New London for a 1:30 pm pick-up.
