Reminders about our School Year Calendar

  • Our school day will continue to run Monday-Thursday from 8:30-3:36 and Friday from 8:30-1 2:48. Students will continue to have classes that meet on a block schedule, and Advisory and lunch will meet for 45 minutes each.
  • Fridays students will continue to be scheduled for 2 blocks, and they will also have Advisory and lunch.

Students in the Upper House (11th and 12th grade) will continue to have shorter semesters and 2 Intersession terms a year. Term dates are already posted on the FMHS website on the school calendar.


In addition to some changes in our schedule, we have more unique programs coming in 2018 – 2019. On WEDNESDAY, September 26, all families are invited to our FMHS Family Night​ to learn more about our Advisory and Guidance program; curriculum; grading policy innovations; graduation requirements; how to get involved in our PTA and more. We look forward to seeing you September 26 from 5:30-7:30pm​.


First Day of School – Wednesday, September 5
Our school year begins just after Labor Day on Wednesday, September 5. Students should plan on meeting in an extended Advisory and shortened Wednesday classes for an introduction to the year.

8:30am – Class of 2022 meets in ADVISORY; Class of 2021 meets in the AUDITORIUM
9:00am – Class of 201 9 arrives for a Senior Breakfast in the LIBRARY
9:30am – Class of 2020 arrives for ADVISORY
2:30pm – All students dismissed

The first day of school is hectic at entry. To ease the process, all returning students should bring their student ID cards with them. Students should plan to arrive 1 5-20 minutes early for the first few days while new students learn entry procedures and all schools adjust to new schedules. If you have questions about your child’s attendance or arrival during the first days, please reach out to her/his advisor or guidance counselor. Thursday will be a full day of classes for all students
