• 10:30 PM Update on Power Outage at FSS

    PECO now is telling FSS that repairs should be completed by 2 a.m. If power is restored by 6 am, school will be open tomorrow. If it is not, school will be closed. The school will decide and will post its decision here no later than 6 a.m.

    Please note that the Grade 9 raft trip will take place tomorrow regardless. Ninth graders should report to school and gather on Race Street by 7:45 a.m. A faculty member will be there early to make sure all students are safe and supervised while they gather. The building will not be accessible if school is closed.

    Thank you for your patience as we work with the city to correct this situation.

    A city transformer has been damaged and the power is out in the building. Power will be out a lengthy time. We are dismissing school now. Students are safe. Pick up and dismissal are earlier. Upper school students are being dismissed now. You may come pick up your lower or middle school student now. If you are unable to pick up your child now, after school program will provide coverage until you get here.

    Three Institutional Areas of Focus for 2014-2015

    Posted August 25, 2014
