welcome backDear Fernbrook Families,

I hope you are enjoying your summer break!  The staff and I are excited to start the new school year and have the opportunity to work with your student.  As the new principal, I am looking forward to meeting all of the students and each of you!  First things first, everyone calls me “Mr. Z.”

The Fernbrook website is http://schools.district279.org/fb/.  We encourage you to take the time to look at it now and throughout the year. 

Open House is Wednesday, August 29, 4:00-6:00 pm.  During this time, parents and students can meet the teacher, see the classroom, deposit money in lunch accounts, drop off school supplies, leave health information and medications with the nurse and get answers to any questions you may have. 

Teacher placement will not be final until a few days before Open House.  An automated message will be sent out to all families when teachers are assigned and available for viewing on ParentVue. 

ParentVue access codes will be distributed during Open House if you still need to set up your account.  If you are having problems with ParentVue, please contact  District Info Systems at 763-391-7056 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

FeePay is a separate on-line account that can be set up to deposit money into student lunch accounts.  Instructions on how to set up the account are on the  Fernbrook website.  If you have problems  with set up or logging in, please contact  District Info Systems at 763-391-7056.

The school supply list is on our website.  Supplies can be dropped off during Open House if you choose.

Busing information will be mailed out by the District Transportation Department sometime towards the end of August.  If you have questions, please contact Transportation directly at 763-391-7244 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Volunteers are ordinary people with extraordinary hearts, and we love volunteers at Fernbrook.  If you plan to volunteer for anything at any time during the school year or want to be included on the on-line volunteer distribution list, you must submit a volunteer application every school year.  Applications are available to print from the Fernbrook website or you can pick one up in the main office.  Contact our volunteer coordinator at 763-391-8423 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have questions.

The first day of school is Tuesday, September 4.  School hours are 8:50 am - 3:20 pm.  Students who are dropped off should arrive no earlier than 8:30.  The first bell rings at 8:40, and all students are expected to be in the classroom ready to go by the second bell at 8:50. 

If you have any questions, the main office opens on August 1.  Please do not hesitate to call or email our school secretary at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
