Grade 8 to 9 transition process information

May 4, 2018On Wednesday, May 16, FMS eighth-graders will visit GHS as part of the 8th to 9th grade transition process.

Students will depart FMS by 12:50 p.m. and arrive at GHS by 1:05 p.m. The program will include a welcome assembly followed by Q&A session, GHS Club Fair, and an extensive tour of the high school.

Students will be dismissed at 3:30 p.m. At the conclusion of the transition program (3:30 p.m.), students will be taking the high school’s late buses home; no high school students will be riding these buses on this date.

The drop-offs from the late bus runs are more generalized, so students will likely not be dropped off at their typical afternoon location and may need to walk a little farther than normal.

Any students being picked up by parents at the high school, or students wishing to walk home from the high school will need to bring in a note signed by a parent indicating permission to do so (as well as for pick-up, including the name of the person doing the pick-up). Notes need to be dropped off to your student's house office by 10 a.m. on the day of the visit.

A middle school shuttle bus will be available at 3:30 p.m. to bring students from GHS back to FMS for any athletic or other activity those students may need to attend.

 If you have any questions, please contact your student's house office.
