1st Grade Parent Breakfast:   Thursday, April 23rd

Parents are invited to school from 9:00-10:30 to eat breakfast and learn a little about what our students are doing in first grade.    It's also a great time to play some games or activities to help your child be successful!



FES means SUCCESS !    AGAIN!


We are so happy and proud to announce that once again, Flemington has been designated by the West Virginia Department of Education as a School of Success!  And beyond that, we have earned the title of a High Progress Reward School!   We hope that as parents, you share in this pride.   It takes all of us, working together, to make such learning and achievement possible!  





Taylor County Kindergarten Registration

Parent with children who will be 5 years old before September 1, 2015 must call and register their child for kindergarten.  


If you know of someone in the area who has young children - or who has recently moved into our area- please let them know they need to call the school.   It's important for us to know as soon as possible the most accurate count for next fall.  

        


  ATTENDANCE 

Each day is important - especially with the threat of the flu season and winter weather.    Good sleep and handwashing are important to staying healthy and in school!   

       If your child has to stay home due to illness, you must send a note.   Parents can only excuse 5 days per semester (Sept-Jan).    Any days after that must have a doctor's note to be excused.  Please call the office if you have any questions.

   


CHECK OUT THE CALENDAR

Please remember that according to state law, every snow day must be made up.   Spring break has been shortened and days have been added to the end of the year.  


Last day of school for students is now June 11th. 


2 hour delays do not have a significant effect on the calendar.   Our school day is a little longer than required and we can bank those extra minutes to provide for weather delays or required meetings.   I know it is disruptive to household schedules, especially for working parents.   But great consideration is given for student safety.   We also must stay current with instructional requirements and strategies.   Thank you for your patience and understanding.
