Due to the forecasted winds and anticipated ferry cancellations, we will have a Remote Learning Day on Friday, December 23rd. I hope this early notification will give you additional time to rearrange your plans during this busy holiday week. Remember that we must hold a Remote Learning Day because we had already utilized our only “Bad Weather Day” in September when we closed for COVID. As planned, we will still hold a half-day of school. Teachers will communicate with their students (and families in elementary) the expectation for classes on Friday- this will either be live zoom classes, assignments in Google Classroom, or work that is sent home in advance. Students will be sent home with all required materials on Thursday. We ask that you notify the main office (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) if your child cannot participate in their assigned learning so that we can mark their attendance accordingly. The holiday events previously scheduled for Friday (Reindeer Games, Secret Santa, etc.) will all be rescheduled and communicated to students. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. In your service, Christian
The parent-teacher group, FIS Connect, will be coordinating potluck-style food items, such as soup and sandwiches, as well as desserts and coffee for those attending the concert this evening. Food options will be labeled, but those with allergies should consider alternative options. We hope you'll stop by our table to learn more about FIS Connect!
