-DATES TO REMEMBER for 2015-2016-

Last Day for Students-June 16. It will be an early release day and students will be dismissed at noon.

-2016-2017 School Calendar link:

--Paperless registration is coming to FES-The Falmouth Elementary School will begin to utilize an online student registration and student data validation system, beginning with our new 2016-2017 school year. The system is a secure and green process, which allows the district to quickly obtain up to date information on your child. The online system will be used for all new student registrations. Returning students will use this system to verify demographic, emergency and medical information and allow you to update that information prior to the start of the new school year. The link for returning students will be emailed to all current parents in the near future. 
No School for Kindergarten on MAY 25, 26 & 27

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

As you know, by state law we must hold a screening for all incoming kindergarten students.  The screening takes place in May, and is always held in the kindergarten wing at our school during daytime hours. Our entire kindergarten staff participates, as do many of our specialists.  Needless to say, on the days that we hold screening appointments, the current kindergarteners do not have school.

On Wednesday, May 25, Thursday, May 26, and Friday, May 27, your child will not be attending school so that we can hold screenings for the 2016 incoming kindergarteners. We will repeat this reminder several times between now and the end of May.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,

John G. Flaherty
