Attention families: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law, requires that a school with certain exceptions obtain your written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your child’s education records. However, a school may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless you have advised the school to the contrary in accordance with school district procedures. The primary purpose of directory information is to allow schools to include information from your child’s education records in certain school publications.

Parents who wish to opt their students out of directory information releases must complete an Opt-Out Form for each of their students, and must return each form to the school at which each student is enrolled by November 6, 2023. Find more information, including the forms you need HERE.

Message from the Principal

Dear FitzPatrick Falcon Families,

Welcome back to another exciting school year! We are so pleased to have you as a part of the
FitzPatrick School family! Your future begins here! We pray that you have had an enjoyable
summer of fun and relaxation and that you are ready to dive into a new school year on Tuesday,
September 5, 2023!
One of the most important ingredients for student success is when parents, teachers and
administrators work as partners toward a shared vision. We invite and encourage your
cooperation and support as, together, we strive to promote excellence in the lives of the students
we serve.
Attendance continues to be our priority! Every student, in school, on time, every day!
Our school day is from 7:30am – 2:09pm. Please plan accordingly to ensure a timely arrival.
Every minute counts! Students may arrive as early as 7am in order to partake in breakfast. Both
breakfast and lunch are free for all students.
We believe that communication is key. We will reach out to you in multiple ways to inform you
of school events. Dojo is our main form of communication but we will also utilize notes home,
robocalls, monthly calendars, email and our social media platforms.
Please join us on Friday, September 1, 2023 from 12pm to 1pm for a staff meet and greet as well
as an opportunity to drop off school supplies to your child’s classroom. We will have raffles,
giveaways, uniform sales, snow cones, cotton candy, popcorn and a scavenger hunt! This is a
great time to find out more about our school community!
We are looking forward to another productive, engaging year of learning! With your support, we
can make it happen. As we often say…working together, we can make it work!

Warmest Regards,

Ms. Kären T. White
