Arrival time for students is 7:50- 8:10. Students temperatures will be taken by staff before they enter the building. Our current plan is to take them at the car. When students enter the building they will go directly to their lockers and then to their first hour class. First hour begins at 8:15. Students who arrive after 8:10 will have to go through the front door and wait in the foyer for their temperature check. Parents will be asked to stay until they see a green card in the window.
Dismissal time is 2:35 for 5th and 6th grade, and 2:40 for 7th-12th.
We will NOT be asking a checklist of questions regarding the COVID 19 symptoms when your child arrives. We are believing that you are all very much aware of the symptoms to look for and will keep your child(ren) home if they are exhibiting any of them. If your child has a temperature of 100 degrees or more when we do morning checks, they will not be able to stay. We want school to stay in session, and the best way we can do that is to work as a team.
We will be sharing much of our information this year on the school’s website – fcsfalcons.com. Our weekly Monday Note will be exclusively on the website. We will continue to do principal posts and updates to keep you informed. Please check it regularly for updates on school information.
Calendar changes – There is an updated calendar on the website.
September 3 and 4 will be NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS. We have added these days as staff in-service days.
We are aware that some of the supplies on the supply list are very difficult to find right now. If you are unable to purchase them now, just bring them in when you can find them.
We will be offering our hot lunch program this year. We will have 2 microwaves available during lunch. Mrs. Hauck will be monitoring them and wiping the buttons after use. Keep in mind it will take longer for students to get items heated. Please limit your items to things that heat quickly in order to reduce the waiting for others.
Social Distancing and Sanitation
We have taken many steps to keep our students and staff as safe as possible during the school day. It is our desire that we can make the day feel as “normal” as possible under current restrictions and protocols required by IDPH and State. Some of the measures we are taking include: limiting class size, distancing desks, directional arrows in the hallways, limited numbers in bathrooms, sanitizing between classes and after school. We will work with students to help them understand the value of following these protocol. Please help us by encouraging cooperation and positive attitude.
Leslie Augenstine is our new athletic director. She will be posting information on the new sports schedule soon.
We are stepping into 2020-2021 school year with confidence that God is in control and He will lead us and guide us. We are facing different obstacles this year than other years, BUT God has always been faithful in helping us overcome the obstacles we face in ministry. He is FAITHFUL and HE will do it again.
Serving Him Together,
