Important Back to School Information

FES families,
-Open House will be Thursday, August 8th from 5pm-7pm for grades pre-k to 6th grade. We appreciate Enon Baptist Church for their support of our school and for providing Kona Ice snow cones during our open house.
-To ensure a smooth beginning to this school year Kindergarten students will have a staggered entry. Half of the students will report on Tuesday, half will report on Wednesday and then all kindergarten students will report on Thursday. Parents can find out more information during open house as to what day your kindergarten student will start.
-Please be patient the first week of school with the car rider line. Students and staff are learning which cars students ride home in and doing that in a safe manner. Things get better each day with the amount of time it takes us to do this safely.
We look forward to an awesome FES 2019-2020 school year!
