Supporting Our Teachers

Many parents have asked how they can support our teachers this year and we are grateful.  Raising Arizona Kids magazine recently published an article highlighting this question with some excellent suggestions. https://www.raisingarizonakids.com/2021/08/5-ways-to-support-your-childs-teacher-this-year/

School Bell

Please keep in mind that the school day ends at 4 pm. Lately we have seen a few families pushing the envelop a little to much. We ask that you respect our staff and be on time to pick-up your kiddos.

Reading

Homework, Agendas, & Folders

Friday Support

After School

As we notified you over the summer, we will not be offering After Care this year. There are two local daycare centers that have said they will offer pickup and drop-off before and after care. Their info is available in the Parent Orientation Webinar. 

Parent Orientation Webinars

We highly encourage everyone to view our Parent Orientation webinars, available on the PIC. They go over a lot of important information and can answer a lot of the questions we have been receiving. 

Face Covering

Our mask policy follows current AZ law and MCDPH recommendations, so wearing a mask at FrenchAm is optional and up to the individual to maintain. The policy is outlined in our COVID-19 Mitigation Plan and details were discussed in the Parent Orientation meetings. You can view all of that in the PIC.
