As Salaamu ‘Alaikum FTS Families,
Welcome back! We hope all our families enjoyed a fun, safe, and healthy winter break. I would like to pause at this mid year point to express gratitude for the blessings, successes and even challenges that have helped us grow together as a team of parents and educators. I hope and pray that you feel equally a part of this special team, and that Allah blesses us with unity and many successes in the months to come. With these sentiments we begin the second semester of the school year. There are lots of events coming up so hold on to your hats – It’s going to feel fast!

Thank you for keeping your children home if they are sick or possibly contagious. Please keep school health guidelines in mind as we continue going through cold and flu season.
There have been no reported cases of headlice since returning to school after winter break. However, because there was a report a week prior to the break, I am sending a reminder to check for lice and nits as a precautionary measure. Although head lice do not carry disease, nor are they caused by “dirty” hair, they can be a nuisance.

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!
