We are SO HAPPY to welcome our returning families and
our new families to school.
We have missed being here and we are looking
forward to an amazing school year.
The Newsletters are PACKED with information. Please read each one from beginning to end.
Parents, you will receive this newsletter weekly via the current email you have provided to the school office or you may access the newsletter on our school website (www.fbauc.com). PLEASE read the email weekly to stay abreast of current information. If you should change your email…..please inform us.
Also, keep your home address, phone numbers,
and emergency contacts updated in the office.
AFTER SCHOOL PICK UP
Parents, in the picture below, please note the traffic flow pattern for after school pick up for students in grades K5 – 5th. It is very important to follow this pattern. Have your car as close to the sanctuary building as possible so your cars do not interfere with the upper school after school pickup in the back parking lot.
There will be no hot lunch or milk offered at least through the first nine weeks of school. At that time we will access the lunch situation and determine if we will begin offering lunches and milk during the second nine weeks.
At this time, we cannot have lunch visitors due to social distancing limitations.
Elementary Students MAY NOT have sodas with their lunch.
NOTE: If your child forgets to bring a water bottle to school, we do have water bottles available in the school office for purchase. Your account will be charged 45 cents for each water bottle purchased.
Students in 3rd grade and up have access to a microwave oven; however, they are limited to just warming items for a minute or less. Children need to know how to operate a microwave independently.
All payments are due on the 1st and late after the 15th of each month. You will receive your statement via email the first Wednesday of each month. Your September statement will be emailed on September 4th. You may pay on the 1st or you may wait UNTIL you receive your statement on the 4th. You can always check your balance/account on Praxi. Remember- you can pay online.
Look at your statement CAREFULLY each month.
Athletic Practice Uniforms
One of our families ordered two of the wrong size dri-fit shirts. If you haven't placed your order yet and will need a youth medium, you can stop by the office and purchase one or both of these. They have not been worn and the tags are still on!
On the same note, the online store will close again on August 26th. This is where you can order the NEW SWEATSHIRT as well. Place your order now to get your items in the next shipment.
All sales are final due to customization of the products. Sizes seem to be running true to size and sizing guidelines are available online.
A NOTE FROM OUR LIBRARIAN
Welcome back to school! I just wanted to update our library policies for you as we start the new year. We are of course sanitizing hands as students enter the library, and then we have a short lesson, craft, or game. When we begin checking out books, they will be grouped on tables and carts for students to choose from, then they will be checked out as usual (but with two students at a time in line with space between them). When the books are returned the next week, they will be kept out for a 4-day "Quarantine" before re-circulating.
Mrs. Cooper, School Librarian
We are in need of substitute teachers. If you are interested, you may go to our website www.fbauc.com and copy the substitute teacher application. Once you have it filled, out drop it off in the school.

You may wear your spirit shirt to school with school
appropriate jeans every Friday.
