Students’ first day of school is Thursday, August 4, 2016. Classes begin at 7:45.
Our Veteran’s Day program is scheduled for Wednesday, 11 November. We will have breakfast for our veterans at 0815. At 0845, we will have a “Parade of Veterans” leading to the gym. So that we may know how much food to prepare, we would appreciate a RSVP by 4 November for those veterans that plan to attend. Please invite your veterans and have them telephone the school at 601-545-7714 if they plan to attend.
There have been many questions concerning emblems and the FCSD Dress Code Policy. In an order to focus on instruction and student achievement, we will allow a reasonable amount of time for students to meet the requirements of the dress code policy.
Students with small emblems on their clothing will be allowed to attend class at this time.
If you have additional questions, please contact the school office.
