Update from Administration
  • If anyone still needs to pick up their students' supplies, the next available time will be Tuesday, May 12th from 12pm-3pm. This will be for all last names.

  • Devices issued to students during the school closure will be kept over the summer.

  • Online registration for new and returning students will begin on July 1, 2020. Like last year, Mr. Percoski is asking that parents register as early as possible because that helps us in planning for the new school year.

901 Fox T-Shirts
If you ordered a 901 Fox T-Shirt, please sign up for a time to come pick up your shirt using this link:
Pick up will take place in the driveway of  8724 Silkwood Drive . Your shirt will be in the driveway in a bag labeled with your name. (If you ordered for more than one child, the shirts will be combined into ONE bag per family.) Be sure to list all your students' names in the slot where asked. If you’re picking up for a friend, be sure to list that child’s name in the slot as well. Please note: If you do not sign up for a time, your bag will not be set out!

If none of these times work for you or if you're not sure if you ordered a shirt, please email Melissa Salazar . All shirts not picked up will be saved and distributed when school resumes in August.

Re-Zoning Update for Land Adjacent to FHES
Many of you that have driven by the school recently may have noticed a rezoning sign and wondered what was going on? 

As you may recall, a land swap was approved that saw GMSD get the park behind Houston HS, the water tower that was planned for the school get moved close to the RR tracks and a developer, John Duke, get 3 acres of land behind the new administration building.  

The 3 acres that went to John Duke were zoned RE-1 and he applied to change that to R zoning. As part of the rezoning process in Germantown, a sign is now placed alerting the public to a zoning change. That was the sign that you may have seen. The Planning Commission voted to approve this on Tuesday night and it will move to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen for final approval.
