We will administer medication in accordance with state regulations and with physician and parental approval. All medication, both prescription and over-the-counter, must be in the original container. If your child requires medication during school hours, please read the school’s medication policy on our Student Health page.
We are pleased to provide our students with safe, reliable transportation to and from school each day. We consider bus riding a privilege and expect all students to adhere to the rules for their own safety as well as the safety of others. For information on bus policies, schedules, and routes, please visit our Transportation page.
School hours are 8:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for kindergarten through fifth grade students and 8:00 a.m. to 3:36 p.m. for middle and high school students. Visit the Our School page for additional information about school hours and class schedules.
If your child must miss school, please call the school office on the day of his/her absence. For information about attendance requirements and what qualifies as an excused absence, please refer to our student handbook.
We expect students to dress appropriately when they are in school or participating in school activities. The school administration establishes rules concerning dress to ensure student dress meets the standards of cleanliness, healthfulness, and safety and does not disrupt the educational process. In general, students may not wear:
- Clothing that creates an offensive environment by displaying slogans, objects, or pictures that are sexually suggestive or promote the use of drugs, alcohol, or gang activity
- Immodest clothing that is sexually offensive
- Unsanitary clothing that poses a health concern
For more information about the dress code, read the student handbook.
Students may not use cell phones or other non-district, electronic devices during the school day. To best support our students in complying with this policy, FCSD#2 is partnering with a company called Yondr to provide secure storage pouches for student devices. Students must power off any personal device and store all devices in Yondr pouches upon entering the building. Students retain possession of their locked phones throughout the school day. Teachers are able to instruct and students learn without cellular distraction. Upon exiting the school, student phones/devices are unlocked, and they are free to use their devices to coordinate transportation and contact family members. Students are permitted to bring the following communication/electronic devices, provided they fit in the Yondr pouches: cell phones, ipods or music players, smart watches, and headphones.
