FREEPORT HIGH SCHOOL                                      Summer 2017

GUIDANCE NEWS

_______________________________________________________




Final exams have concluded and grades have closed for the school year 2016-2017.  A mailing will go out shortly, which will include student report cards.  A second mailing will go home in mid-August, which will include an updated student transcript and finalized student schedules for 2017-2018.  **Counselors are balancing course sections over the summer, so these finalized schedules that are mailed out in August may be different from the original schedule students received in June!**

 

2017-2018 student schedules were released on Friday, June 16th and students had the week of final exams to make adjustments to their schedule during the Add/Drop period.  The next Add/Drop period for students in grades 10-12 will begin on Friday, September 8th.  This will give students a chance to settle into their schedule for a Maroon and White day rotation before they request any additional changes.  Add/Drop period for 9th grade students will begin on their first day of school, Tuesday, September 5th. For more information about ADD/DROP Protocol go here.

 

Kim Callnan, Guidance Registrar, will be in the office on all Wednesdays in July, to assist with grades, transcripts and scheduling registration appointments.  During the month of August she will be in on Wednesday, August 2nd, Thursday, August 10th, Wednesday, August 16th, and Thursday, August 24th.  A counselor will be in the office through Friday, June 29th and then we will close for the month of July.  

 

While schedule changes will not be addressed until the Add/Drop period begins, counselors will be back in the office on the following days to address any other concerns:

August 2: Liz Peirce

August 3: Liz Peirce & Dana Clark

The 2017-2018 FAFSA is now available!
File as soon as possible
Filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step to receiving financial aid. The 2017-2018 FAFSA became available on October 1 at FAFSA.gov. We recommend filing your FAFSA as soon as possible.

To complete the FAFSA, all students need an FSA ID--a username and password used to access FAFSA.gov. Additionally, if parent information is required on the FAFSA, one parent will also need his/her own FSA ID.
Have questions about the FSA ID or FAFSA?
We'll guide you through the process
We're hearing lots of questions this year regarding the FSA ID. If you need assistance with your FSA ID or FAFSA, come to one of FAME's free In-Person FAFSA Help sessions.
