"Summertime... and the living's easy!"
Take a deep breath and smell that fresh summer air. We made it through another school year!

If you have any questions over the summer, our website is a great resource for all things FCS. Plus, make sure to keep an eye out for information and announcements on our social media platforms. Thank you for sharing your students with us!

New Bus Driver Training Simulators come to FCS
Imagine learning how to drive a 15-ton school bus, but in the comfort and safety of a training classroom. The Transportation department recently debuted two training simulators that mimic the driver's cab of a school bus. Similar to aviation simulators, trainees sit behind the steering wheel in an actual bus driver's seat - which both vibrate and shake in response to their actions - in front of a wall of monitors that simulate busy streets, road sounds, and neighborhood activity.

We ♥ Our Teachers
As a part of Teacher Appreciation Week 2023, FCS featured three outstanding teachers - one each from elementary, middle and high school. These teachers represent the excellence, professionalism, and enthusiasm of all our district-wide faculty and staff who care for the education and well-being of every FCS student. We appreciate their efforts and celebrate their contributions this week and every week throughout the year. Check out their "Teacher Features."
