Dear 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.
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.
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.
Jeff Zastrow, Principal
