Dear Fine Feltonville Family,
We hope everyone has had a good start to the 2020-21 school year, as good as possible during the COVID-19 Crisis, and the enduring social issues in our city, state and country. Our sincere concern is that everyone in your family is safe, and ready for the new school year. If you have had any loss, or trauma, please know that my heart is with you, and all of our school resources are available to help you with any need that you have.
Please contact Ms. Delgado, our SISL, at email@example.com or 215-400-3730 if you need some help in finding out your assigned classroom & teacher.
My main goal at FIS is always to ensure that every student remains safe, sound, and happy, while reading to lead and succeed on or above grade level, and staying on the right path in math.
Most importantly, an excellent education is not possible without the great collaboration of students, parents, faculty, and staff. Over the next few weeks, we will discuss the transition all of our excellent students, parents, faculty, and staff at FIS to our Autumn 2020 learning schedule, while also helping to implement our common planning protocol, along with our reading and math frameworks designed for student success! We invite you to work with our new Assistant Principal, Dr. Nicole Jolly, our new teachers and staff, along with Merakey, our new Behavior Health Services provider. Please join our Virtual School Advisory Council (SAC) Meetings every second Tuesday of the month at 9:30 a.m. The Zoom Link will be sent before the meetings.
Even during these difficult days, please find time to communicate with family and friends, albeit virtually, or at least six feet apart via social distancing. Please remember to wear masks whenever you go out in public, or visit our schools. We will have learning materials for pick-up on Monday – Thursday,from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. . Also, please stay in tune with the SDP Website: www.philasd.org, for information on food distribution on Fridays, and for news and updates regarding coping with COVID 19.
Families may keep their laptops for the new school year 2020-21. If you have need a new laptop, or have any technology issues, please visit Fitzpatrick Annex at 4101 Chalfont Ave, MLK High School at 6100 Stenton Avenue, or South Philadelphia High School at 2101 South Broad Street.
