Important Information from Principal Cournoyer Regarding Our Return to Full Week Instruction

Greetings FRCS Parents/Guardians,
I suspect we are all embracing the words, “As we continue to return to normal…” almost as much as we’ve dreaded hearing, “In these unprecedented times…”! We are slowly but surely working our way toward normalcy.
I reach out today with some points of clarification about our return to full week instruction, which begins next Monday, May 10th. Please read through the following points to ensure a smooth transition for everyone.
  • HS students who have been learning remotely/online, will continue doing so for the remainder of the school year. Please contact the student’s guidance counselor by Friday, May 14th to switch from remote learning to five day in-person school. There may be a delay in some instances if arrangements must be made to accommodate returning students. Note: Students who are home for non-COVID related reasons may log into classes but will still be marked absent per Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education regulations.
  • HS students who have been learning in the hybrid model (some days at school and some remote) will begin attending school, in person, all five days per week beginning on Monday, May 10th through the end of the school year. Please contact the student’s guidance counselor if you wish to switch to remote learning.
  • HS students who are expected to physically be in school do not have the option of logging in remotely unless they must do so for COVID-related reasons (quarantine, symptoms, illness, etc.), and must do so through the school nurse
  • FRCS will continue to follow best practices for health and safety, including but not limited to:
    • wearing of masks at all times except while eating, when we will be six feet apart
    • maintaining as much distance as possible and never less than three feet while masked
    • one-way traffic in most hallways and stairwells
I am certain that we can get through the remainder of the school year successfully if we continue to be patient, flexible and understanding. We are almost there!
Warm regards,
Mike Cournoyer
High School Principal
