Congratulations Coach Dave Smith

Congratulations Dave Smith on your retirement from many years of coaching Junior High Cross Country.

The Home meet on Thursday was Dave’s last one after coaching for about 38 years. It was a successful meet with both the Boys and Girls Junior High teams finishing in 2nd place. Pictured with him are his current teams plus several former runners who he has coached over the years. Thank you Dave for all you have done for the FORT over the year!

See below for more information from Mr. Wagner regarding the Elementary School 

We love this time of year!  Homecoming is a great opportunity to celebrate our pride for our community.  Let’s celebrate this extraordinary day by being safe and having fun.  The date of this event is Friday, September 18. Unfortunately, the homecoming parade has been canceled this year.   On the positive side, the elementary continues to plan on participating in the pep rally at the high school.  If you would prefer to not have your student participate in the pep rally this school year, for any reason, please feel free to pick up your student by 12pm at the elementary.  Additionally, please contact your classroom teacher and the office if you are taking this approach.  Furthermore, each classroom will have a designated area on the football field while maintaining a reasonable amount of social distancing. Once the homecoming pep rally is complete all students will be released from the high school.  Students that are riding the bus will stay at the high school to board and then depart for their route.  There are two options that are available for pick up.  First, you may check your students out with the classroom teacher from the football field.  Please keep in mind we will be moving quite swiftly to the front of the high school to provide the second option of pick up.  Next, if you are picking up in your vehicle please use the front of the high school (West Parking Lot) please enter from P43. Take a right as you enter the parking lot.  There will be a line so please be patient.  Proceed to the front of the building where a staff member will assist you.  Let’s have a safe celebration.  Thank you for your continued support in your child’s education!
