  • Distance learning communication. FCS is an in-person learning facility. We’ve accommodated distance learning in the past due to the critical nature of Covid-19 but will be focusing our efforts on in person learning for the upcoming school year. As a rule, distance learning will not be offered. Exceptions may apply for extended mandatory quarantine requirements, on a case-by-case basis, approved by administration, with consultation from the nurse.

When I was teaching students before becoming principal, I would always start the year with this verse:

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. ~2 Timothy 2:15

 I felt this was a great way to focus the students on the year ahead, making the most of their educational opportunities, and to work hard so that they could be proud of their accomplishments.

We are excited to begin another school year and can’t wait to see the students and teachers in the building again soon!
