Principal’s Corner

We will be starting a new and exciting school year with some new teachers in our school. Trudy Weaver will be our new Dean of Students. Trudy is coming to us from Gooding where she was Athletic Director, Dean of Students, and PE teacher. Joining us in the Mathematics Department will be Sam White and Miranda Miller. Sam taught mathematics in Buhl and Miranda taught in Richfield. Kory Kay will be teaching Social Studies. He has just completed his student teaching experience at West Jefferson and his degree at BYU Idaho. He will also be coaching football and girls’ basketball. Lyndsey Anderson will be teaching Family and Consumer Science. Lyndsey is joining us from the business world. Cole Meyerhoeffer will be teaching science having just completed his biology degree from Idaho State University. Jennifer Cummins will be our new Agriculture Science Teacher. Jennifer has been teaching in Lindhurst California for the past 11 years. She will be helping Brian Wolf in the Agriculture program and with our FFA. John Haeberle will be joining the Music Department. He will be teaching band in the Middle School and both band and choir at the high school. His most recent teaching experience was in Fairfield, Idaho at Camas County High School.

Registration for FHS will be online for the second year. Parents will need their PowerSchool username and password (same as last year). Mrs. Susan Pospichal, in our main office, will be very glad to help you set one up or reset your old password if you have forgotten it. Note: PowerSchool has a forgotten password feature that doesn’t work, so your best solution is to contact Susan at 208-326- 5944.

If you wish, you can login to PowerSchool from home starting on August 18, 2017. You will be able to pay appropriate fees and download required forms. After your session, you should get a receipt for fees paid or a summary of balance due. Also, a class schedule should be generated with locker information for your convenience. There will also be in person registration on August 23 and 24 in the cafeteria using the following schedule. The in-person registration will also be conducted online using the student’s new Chromebooks. Chromebooks will be issued to students with a signed Chromebook agreement during advisory on the first day of school.

Wednesday, August 23 – seniors 5:30 – 7:00 PM, juniors 7:00 - 8:30 PM,
Thursday, August 24 – sophomores 5:30 – 7:00 PM, freshmen 7:00 - 8:30

Some schedules may change slightly. Please check just prior to school starting to ensure your student has the current schedule. If s/he has “see counselor” on the schedule or a schedule change is needed, please send an email to your counselor with a request.
