Chromebook Exchanges:

Chromebook Exchanges are now being held at our building. If your student need to exchange a Chromebook, please have him/her bring it to the main office. Additionally, if your student is enrolled in VLA and Home School would be FMS, please contact the main office to arrange an exchange time.

Food Service Process

There will not be a parent meal pick up for students when the school is in a Blended Learning environment as pre-ordered meals will be going home with the students.

  • Meals will be packaged to send home with students that have pre-ordered meals.

  • On Tuesdays, meals will be sent home with the Blue Group to cover meals for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

  • On Fridays, meals will be sent home with the Green Group to cover meals for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for the following week.

Infinite Campus (IC) is the District’s Internet-based student information system. Important features of IC are the Parent Portal and NEW Mobile App. Through the IC tools parents are able to access their child’s information, such as class schedules, attendance, academic reports, transportation information, coursework, and put funds in their child’s food service account online. Parents can also designate how and where they wish to receive emergency communications, attendance calls, general announcement messages, and e-mail messages from teachers, the school, and the school district.
