Keeping our Kids Safe
  • Please keep in mind that our Kiss and Go Line is a kid zone where our young children are breathing in gas fumes.  We have signs posted that when you are waiting in Kiss and Go that you turn your cars off to reduce the amount of pollution our students are breathing.  Thank you for adhering to this policy.
  • NO PARKING in our Kiss and Go lane.  We have had a lot of parents parking in our Kiss and Go lanes during drop off and pick up.  If you need to come in the building please take an extra minute and park in our parking lot.  When cars park in the line it slows down traffic and causes a lot of congestion out on Lovington street, making our student crosswalk dangerous.  Thank you for adhering to this policy.


Halloween Parade
Please see this map  parade route  if you are interested in watching our 2nd annual Halloween parade at FSE.   Our classes have assigned exits and entrances in order to ensure that parents are able to see their children and take pictures. If you do not celebrate Halloween you may pick your child up at 3:15 and they will not be marked absent.  Here is a copy of our Halloween Policy.


Jump Rope For Heart
We are wrapping up Jump Rope For Heart with the American Heart Association THIS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3rd!  Thank you so much for helping our campus stay heart healthy and save lives at the same time!  If you haven’t had a chance to join the squad there’s still a little time left to earn the #ScareSquad monsters.  Sign up now atwww.heart.org/jump_flagstone or download the Jump/Hoops App (App Store for iPhone or Google Play for Android).
Thanks for making our community heart healthy!
