Fountain Central Jr/Sr High School
After much consideration regarding making up lost instructional days, we have weighed our options and decided the choice that is most beneficial to our students and the least disruptive to parents is to change the schedule of Wednesdays to match the regular schedules of all other days, starting March 12th through the end of the year. In order to make up two instructional days, we will also need to add 5 minutes to each day. We will be able to do this in the mornings by adding 5 minutes to the official start of the day beginning March 10th. Because our students are here early, we will be able to make this happen without altering bus routes or changing pick-up times. Both schools will provide further guidance on this matter as well. By implementing this plan, the last student day will be May 22nd. However, any further missed school days will be added to the end of the calendar. We will not amend the schedule a second time. Thank you not only for your support of this plan, but also for your involvement in education.
Just a reminder that scholarship deadlines are quickly approaching. There are a few applications due this week; March 1. The Western Indiana Community Foundation scholarship applications are all due Monday, March 10. Please contact Mrs. Jones or Mrs. Bowling if you have any questions concerning your applications. We wish you the best!
Students interested in High School Social Studies Academic Superbowl should see Mrs. Stucky. We could still use a few more people.
