Welcome to SAU 61, Farmington!

Food Service:

June 2 is the last day of instruction for students. As we approach the holiday weekend, we want to let you know that f
ood pickup on Monday May 25 (Memorial Day) will be available at Farmington High School from 10am -12 noon for all students, regardless of grade level. Meal distribution will continue for May 28 and June 1, also from the high school. Beginning on June 3rd, Strafford CAP will be providing meals for Farmington students on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10am-12noon from Henry Wilson only.  Meal service through CAP will continue through August 21st.  We will be arranging with volunteers to deliver meals to those students who are unable to pick up meals. Sign-ups for delivery will go out next week pending sufficient volunteers to make deliveries. Volunteers willing to help with delivery are asked to call (603) 834-0062 and specify the days they are available this summer.

Summer Programming:

Extended School Year (ESY) and Title I programs will both be remote this summer to ensure the safety of students and staff alike. Programs will run from July 20 to August 14. Details will follow from building principals and case managers to families whose students would qualify for these services. Students who will need Chromebooks for summer programs will not need to turn them in in June; however, families are reminded that the devices are still under district restrictions for use and access.

Thank you,

Ruth Ellen Vaughn

FSD COVID-19 Update Letter 3-6-20

Due to safety concerns with the Horntown and River Road bridges, buses will be re-routed indefinitely until repairs are made. Hornetown bridge changes go into effect today 1/30. River Road bridge changes go into effect tomorrow 1/31. We will work with families to re-establish routes and hopefully find an equitable solution. We appreciate your understanding as the safety of our students and staff must take precedence over convenience. ______________________ Notification of Audio/Video Surveillance on School Buses ______________________ Budget Documents for SY 2021 _______________________ FHS NEASC Self-Study Report
