Teacher Conference Date Change (FMS ONLY)

Dear Faith Middle School Parents,

I am sending you this letter to notify you of a change to your student’s school schedule at the end of this month. With the recent change returning our students to brick and mortar instruction, we are having to adjust our conference days. Currently, your child is scheduled to have Teacher Conferences (no school) on Monday, November 2nd. With this change, your child will now have Teacher Conferences (no school) on Friday, October 30th. This change will provide better continuity of instruction for the Faith Middle School students.

If you have elementary school children enrolled on post, there is no change to their conference day. All conferences (elementary and middle school) will be held virtually.

You will be receiving details in reference to the conference day schedule from the school administration. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any additional questions.
