It is that time of year when we start to build the schedule for next year. I will be in the classrooms this week to hand out course registration sheets for students to take home to select courses for next year. Please select courses, sign the form and return the form to the instructor listed on top of the registration sheet by February 17th. The course description book and additional registration forms are available online under guidance and counseling/registration or in the counseling office at FHS. There is also a PowerPoint presentation for your review that covers registration options for grades 9 through 12.

Registration is very important to a student's future education because the administration builds next year’s schedule based upon all student requests. Typically the courses with the most requests are the ones we will offer to students the following year so to help us maintain small class sizes and applicable electives return all course requests before next Friday February 17th.
Direct questions to the counseling office.
ISD 361 will be starting school 2 hours late tomorrow due to the projected temperature and wind speed resulting in a forecasted wind chill at a level that we have chosen to start school 2 hours late. Buses will pick students up 2 hours later than normal and families that drop children off at school should drop off 2 hours later than normal. There will be no breakfast at school when students arrive. Sorry for the inconvenience this puts on families and we hope the early notification helps in planning. Staff can access district email for specific instructions on start times. Have a great evening.

-Roughly 50% of youth with a mental health diagnosis receive treatment.
-Depression is a leading cause of disability worldwide.
-The average delay between onset of symptoms and treatment is 11 years.
Mental health affects everyone and we've teamed up with the Broncos and Bears to help spread the word that help is available and there is no shame in seeking treatment. Stay tuned for more info to come!💚

Happy New Year Bronco Families,
Attached is the January Home/School Attendance Newsletter. Please take a moment to read the important school attendance news as we continue to make school attendance and family education one of our goals for the 22/23 school year. The newsletter highlights our School Attendance Matters…Are You In The Game theme. Our January goal will be a new year, a new start to positive school attendance each week. This includes minimizing school tardies. Please revisit our school start and end times and policy embedded in this month's newsletter. This “attendance play goal” involves some home/school teamwork and positive school attendance conversations and staying healthy. Let’s continue to work together on the importance of school attendance! #schoolattendancematters
