  • GKHS Parent Meeting Re: Change to Trimesters

    Posted by MARK BARNES on 11/9/2018

    Please read this important message from Matt Yarkosky, principal at GK High School:

    We would like to invite you to learn more about our transition from being on a semester calendar (credit bearing grades given every 90 days) to being on a trimester calendar (credit bearing grades given every 60 days) on Tuesday, November 13th at 6:30pm in the GKHS Auditorium.  We are planning on moving to trimesters in the 19/20 school year and would like to keep you updated on the work being done to complete a smooth transition. Currently the elementary and middle schools are on a trimester calendar. If you have any questions please contact us at 253-683-6191.

  • Changing Your Student's Dismissal Plan

    Posted by FMS on 10/29/2018



    If you you need to change your child(ren)'s dismissal plan for a day (i.e pick them up instead of them riding the bus), we ask that you send a signed note or call the office by 1:00pm.  This will ensure teachers and students are notified of the change in a timely manner, student anxieties are reduced, and classroom instructional time is preserved.

    • If we do not have a note / receive a call by 1:00pm, students will follow their typical dismissal plan (i.e. ride their regular bus home).
    • For safety and scheduling reasons, we CANNOT pull students off their buses at dismissal time.  Our buses must stay on schedule as they serve other Bethel school routes after finishing ours.
    • If you need to pick up your child at the end of the day and you missed the 1:00pm cutoff time, you must come to the office to sign your student(s) out (don't forget to bring your ID with you - a requirement to release students).

    If there is an emergency and it is after 1:00pm, we will do our best to accommodate you; just contact the office ASAP.

    Parent notes need to include:

    • Student's first AND last name
    • Purpose of note
    • Parent's Signature and printed first & last name
    • Contact number

    Again, please call by 1:00pm to make ANY last minute changes to your child(ren)'s dismissal plan or plan ahead by sending a note.

Principal's Message

  • Frontier Families,

    Greetings parents and students! We have had a great start to the school year. In fact, this is my 7th year at Frontier, and I can honestly say that we are off to the best start yet. I feel very optimistic about the learning and growth students will make this year.

    We are making concerted efforts to communicate with families even more this year. To better include you in your son or daughter's education, we are continuing or adding the following communication methods:

    1. We periodically send these recorded phone messages, that are accompanied by emails and texts too.

    2. We update our website "FMS News" links.

    3. We have added a Frontier Facebook page, with information you need to know.

    4. We are sending a short "This Week at Frontier" weekly update through Family Access.

    5. We have added a monthly parent newsletter.

    6. And we've asked teachers to share class information more often through Family Access messages. 

    Please view and read these communication efforts so you feel more connected and involved with Frontier, and please contact us if you feel we have missed any important information that would be helpful.
