Dear Spartan Nation,
Over the final few months of the school year we are preparing to take part in some exciting opportunities for our Spartans. We will be hosting Prom Saturday May 3rd and final exams are scheduled for May 28th, 29th, and 30th. The year culminates with graduation, being set for 10 am on June 7th . This is an especially fun time of the year for our students and staff. It is our hope that all of our students will have a great time with their friends and classmates during this time of year. These social and academic experiences provide a different type of learning opportunity, and we are glad we are able to host such events at Francis Howell Central High School.
All should be awesome events, full of memories for our students, but we would like to take a moment to remind us all that our students face peer pressures all the time. These types of social activities may present kids with additional peer pressure to be involved with alcohol and/or illegal drugs. By the time students are in high school, they have been educated on the dangers and repercussions of such involvement; nonetheless, some will make bad choices. Such poor decisions can have both short term and long term implications. We are asking that you partner with us and reinforce a message of safety with your child. Your support will add additional credibility, and, hopefully, lessen the possibility of a bad choice being made.
We appreciate the opportunity to partner with you in the education of your child, and it is our hope that each of our students has a fun, safe, and drug and alcohol-free end of the year experience. If you have questions, or if you need some guidance on how to have such conversations with your child, please contact your child’s counselor or administrator.
Dr. Pam Sloan
Superintendent of Schools

The Care and Concern Box is an effort to provide students an additional way to bring issues to the attention of FHC teachers and staff. There are three care and concern boxes located throughout the building; one in the hallway by guidance and the library, one in the cafeteria, and one near the student parking entrance. The cyber care and concern box below is linked directly to our School Resource Officer.
Students may use the boxes to report actions that they have experienced or witnessed and would like addressed. Students also may report a concern that they have for a fellow student. The student simply drops a note in the box or uses the cyber care and concern box. Be sure to include specific information when making a report. The more details that are included, the better the teachers,principals, counselors, or the SRO can respond. The boxes are checked frequently and the reports are shared with the appropriate staff member.
