The Iowa achievement test is nationally recognized test, and it is used to compare our students' academic level with other schools. It also is helpful for teachers to improve their teaching. Parents receive a copy of their student's results, and a copy is placed in the student's file.

Once a new student enrolls, they take a placement test. This is used to gauge the academic level of the student. Summer school or a lower grade level may be suggested if necessary.

Not all cases are handled the same; however, most students who have flu-like symptoms should just stay home until they are no longer contagious or until their fever is gone.

We do not anticipate any school wide lockdowns. In the event of an outbreak of sickness, a decision would be made on a class-by-class basis whether to have distance learning for a short period of time.

Students are never required to wear masks; however, they are optional. We highly value the importance of face-to-face interaction with the teachers and other students. We encourage frequent hand washing at school. We also ask parents to keep their students home if they are experiencing flu like symptoms.

Our philosophy is that most of the school work be done at school. If the student utilizes the study hall provided, he will have minimal work to take home. No homework is given on Wednesday and Friday.

FBS desires to teach our students the proper usage and balance electronics should play in our lives. 1) K-8th grade students should not bring electronics to school or school activities. Parents of 7th and 8th grade students may request an exemption from the administration if there is a need. 2) The computer lab is available to all grades, but students must be supervised by a teacher at all times. 3) 9th-12th grade students may bring their cell phones to school and turn the phone off or on silent. If a cell phone disturbs a class, the student will receive 2 points (see handbook). 4) Breaks should be used to use the restroom, stretch and prepare for the next class; therefore it is expected that students do not use their phones during school hours. They may check their phones only during lunch and must have permission from staff to make calls/texts anytime during school hours. 5) Students should not wear headphones, before, during, or after school. 6) 11th-12th grade students may bring a tablet or laptop to use in class. Laptops or tablets should only be used for school related material and should have sufficient battery life to not require being plugged in. Any student who seems to be taking advantage of these policies or is incorrectly using their electronics may lose their privilege altogether.
