After School Transportation: Consistency = Safety
We can’t stress enough that the more students have a consistent after-school schedule, the safer it is for ALL students.  In the event it is absolutely necessary to make a change to your child’s after-school dismissal plan, please keep these things in mind:
  • A written note sent with your child in the morning is best.
  • The earlier the change is made, the better.  It is hard for young students to understand and accept a late day change.
  • When writing a note, please print clearly your child’s full name and the date the note is written.  
  • Students are dismissed from class at 3 p.m.
  • Please send a separate note for each student. The notes are recorded in the office and then sent with your student to their teacher.
  • If your student will be absent from school, please call the Elementary Office at 320-968-7286 – then press 1 for the attendance line.
National Unity Day!
FES celebrated National Unity Day on Wed., Oct. 19th! This was a day to work together against bullying and unite for kindness, acceptance & inclusion! Students wore Orange on Unity Day to show the world that we stand against bullying! See all the great pictures on our Facebook page!

Online Conference Registration
We are continuing to have parents sign up for conferences on a web-based program called "Sign-Up Genius". At your convenience, you will  login  to your child's teacher's conference schedule online and choose the time you'd like to sign up. With online conference registration, you may elect to have a reminder e-mail sent notifying you of conference times as scheduled. It's fast and easy!

FES Peanut/Tree Nut Policy
Foley Elementary School has a Peanut / Tree Nut Safe Policy.  We have several students with peanut and or tree nut allergies and we are attempting to provide them with as safe a school environment as possible.  These allergies are severe and life threatening to some students.  Our School Lunch Program uses no foods containing peanut or tree nut products and parents should not send any peanut or tree nut products in cold lunches.  Treats for students and staff for special occasions must also be peanut or tree nut free.  Please read labels to make sure that items do not contain peanut or tree nut products.
