Foresthill Divide School (FDS) News: Our school now has scheduled crossing guards on Foresthill Road for most days in the morning and afternoon. We will continue to seek out more resources until full time daily scheduling is sustainable for the long term. As always, please slow down and drive safely as you pass the school.
With all of our students able to attend daily in-person instruction for full days since the end of February, our campus focus after safety is the upcoming State tests for our students in grades 3 through 8. Most of our teachers will be doing final test preparations before giving their students assessments in mid-April through mid-May. This is an important time for the students and teachers with all families being requested to have their children timely at school each day.
FDS students, families, and staff remain steadfast in their commitment to the culture of positivity, can-do spirit, supportiveness, and kindness in the most challenging times of our lives. I would like the community to continue its commitment with our school and families in exhibiting the same positive culture throughout Foresthill as well…for the sake of our children’s success.
