Additional Information for Parents & Students about School during COVID

The FPHS FOOD & HYGIENE PANTRYThe FPHS Food & Hygiene Pantry became available to support FPHS students and their families after winter break. Click here to make a request from our available stores.

DAILY SCHEDULE CHANGE EFFECTIVE 11-23-20.The intent of the new schedule is to provide more synchronous time with the teacher and less independent/unstructured asynchronous time for the students. In other words, this will mean less "homework" for students. Instead, that homework (aka asynchronous work) will be brought back into the classroom (synchronous time) where teachers can provide supervision, guidance, and on-going feedback. Click here to view the new schedule.
 
HOMEWORK CENTER AVAILABLE DAILY
Mr. Rhue and Mr. Bofa are now available to assist students in the Teams Homework Center every day. They are available on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 11 am - 12 pm and from 2 pm to 4 pm. On Wednesday, you can stop by online between 9 am and noon and between 1 and 4 pm. Remember, any student trying to access Homework Center during synchronous time will be redirected to their remote classroom in Canvas.
 

A Virtual Orientation . . .To our newest Cardinals, welcome! As the year began in remote mode, we created this orientation video for our new freshmen. It is still posted here, and would be helpful to any student new to FPHS, as it  includes a campus tour, a "meet and greet" with teachers, information about clubs and sports, information from counselors about graduation requirements, and a message from administration about high school expectations and how to maximize your success in high school.

 
Some things to expect in Remote Learning:
  • We will be providing a combination of synchronous (live) and asynchronous (independent) instruction. Our primary learning platform is Canvas.
  • Students will be required to attend online classes with their teachers and classmates and attendance will be taken daily.
  • New instruction will occur daily and assessments will count toward a student's grade, GPA, and credits earned.
  • Each teacher will have posted and specified Office Hours to provide additional support to students and families.
  • We will host a daily Homework Center for all students to receive additional assistance and tutoring.
  • We also understand the importance and impact of missing out on the social aspects of school. We will be working with staff and student leaders to create social opportunities for all students to participate in including regular meetings for all student clubs and groups.
  • We know that when teachers and students are able to interact face-to-face in the school buildings, we can create the best learning outcomes possible. That being said, we are still in a global health crisis and need to focus first on the safety of all of our students, staff, and families. We're all in this together.
For Seniors . . . 
Class of 2021! Obviously, the year didn't start as you may have hoped. Nonetheless, we all still have the ability to make it a memorable and impactful year that can launch you into your future endeavors, so we encourage you to make the best of your Senior year despite the current situation. Our challenges, hardships, and obstacles do not define us. What defines us is how we respond in the face of these adversities. Keep your eyes on the prize!
