Students and Parents:
The first day of school in the Kettering City School District will be Wednesday, August 13th, 2014. Freshmen and sophomores will attend Fairmont High School on Wednesday, August 13th with advisory beginning at 7:50 am. This will give our youngest students a chance to get acclimated to the building, familiar with their schedules, and organized. All students will attend Fairmont on the second day, Thursday, August 14th with advisory beginning at 7:50 am.
Freshmen will get their schedules at the end of Fairmont 101 Tuesday, August 5th. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors may pick up schedules in their unit offices beginning Wednesday, August 6th, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m.
We have always prided ourselves in being a friendly, welcoming environment here at FHS. Like most schools across the nation, we have been planning with students, parents, teachers, administrators and law enforcement experts to ensure the safest possible environment for our students. We will be following these recommendations to ensure the safest possible environment for our students. One important recommendation is to limit entrance to the building. Doors 1, 9, and 23 will be open and monitored at 6:30 am. All exterior doors will be locked except Door 1 by the main office of the school at 8:30 am. Visitors should call ahead to schedule an appointment to enter the building (499-1602). Parents dropping off students or items for students should do so at Door 1 and use the drop box. Please be sure to put your student’s name on the item.
