We believe that the breadth of digital tools available to us online can open up worlds of information, provide digital creation tools, and allow teachers to personalize education for our students. We also know how important it is to minimize the digital footprints of our students while taking advantage of the vast resources online available for education.
Please sign and complete the following form before the first day of school:
Parents of new students must submit hard copies of their Certificate of Immunization Status, while parents of returning students may update their children's immunization status online.
Updates (for returning students) may also be faxed or emailed directly from the doctor's office to (503) 292-7444 or email@example.com.
If you need to claim a non-medical exemption, please visit this website.

The Extracurricular Department offers specialized workshops and field trips on most in-service days and through the FAIS Plus program. Childcare is also available on Parent-Teacher Conference days.
FAIS PM Classes allow students to explore areas of interest in a non-academic setting, and provide a fun alternative to FASCA. The PM Class program is divided into semesters--the fall semester will begin the week of September 9.
Students may be dropped off as early as 7:30 AM. FASCA (after-school care) is available after school until 6 PM. (FASCA is only available for middle school students on Wednesday, September 3.)
A healthy morning snack is provided around 9:45 AM in all Maternelle (TPS-K) classes, and students participating in after-school programs are provided with a nutritious snack between 3:30 and 4 PM.

Catlin Gabel School has made two of their morning bus routes available to FAIS families at a rate of $6 per student per ride, or $49 per month. We will take attendance on the bus, and you will be billed for the number of rides your child takes.
Please note that your child must be at least four years old to use the bus transportation service.

Parent participation via volunteer commitment plays an essential role at FAIS and allows FAIS to keep administrative expenses low relative to many other schools. FAIS requires that every family commit to 20 hours of service each year. If the 20 hours are not met, families will be charged $20 per unfulfilled hour. Questions? Contact Sara Hernando at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-292-7776 x1330.
