June Final Report Marks

Just a note to our families that we will not be printing an individual report card for every student at the end of June.  We have found that although we print, sort and have each teacher hand out the June Report card, only a very small percentage of families actually drop by to pick them up.  Instead, we ask our families to go to the Parent Portal to view all marks, as usual.  Also, if you will require an actual printed copy, please email or call and we will accommodate your request.  

Anyone who requests a printed report card can pick it up in the office on June 30th, between 2:00 - 3:00pm. 

2017/2018 FR Haythorne Registration

Just a note to other incoming families who wish to attend FRH, because we are a "closed" school, in order for FRH to accept your registration, you must provide proof of residence, such as a utility bill or drivers license.  Please see our Registration page for forms.  If you have any questions, please contact our office at 780-467-3800.
