District News and Headlines
Last month, we successfully tested our new communication system with SchoolMessenger. The next step is for our students’ families to CUSTOMIZE how you receive important information from your school district, via text, phone or email notification(s). You must set up your preferences or you’ll automatically receive phone call messages.
Click here for instructions on how to set your preferences.
In addition, you can also receive urgent alerts and other important information via SMS text messaging. In order to participate, you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your wireless device. Simply text “YES” to the number 68453. You’ll know you were successful if you receive a reply message. Please note, that although this is a provided service, Forest Hills Public Schools is not responsible for any text message charges that you may incur by opting in to this service. Please check with your wireless provider.

We value your input! If you haven’t done so, please take the 2015 School Survey of Families. Click here to take the survey: http://www.k12insight.com/FHPSFamilySurvey. This survey asks for your feedback on many aspects of instruction that make your child’s school a great place to learn, grow and thrive. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes and will be open until Feb. 5.?
The way you access your student’s school menus has changed and we are pleased to release a new communication tool. Forest Hills Public Schools, in partnership with Chartwells K12, is now using Nutrislice to publish our school menus to a new interactive website. In addition, you may download a free app for a smartphone or mobile device to view things when you’re on the go. The new website and app allow you to see menu item descriptions and photographs, filter common food allergens, translate the menus into another language, view carb counts and calories, and much more. For the website, click here. For a “How To” guide and information about the app, click here.
