Folly Quarter News


Second Quarter

Second quarter closes on Friday, January 20.  Please make sure your student is up to date on all assignments by checking Canvas.  Any student taking a high school credit course will be required to take a midterm exam the week of January 17 - 20.  

Chromebook Loaners

A friendly reminder to ensure your student is bringing their charged Chromebook to school every day.  Starting in the new year, if a student forgets to bring their Chromebook to school, they will no longer receive a loaner.  Instead, they will use a desktop in the media center when they have a digital assignment.  HCPSS has changed the process for receiving replacement Chromebooks and the FQMS loaner inventory is often low.  We need to prioritize loaners for those students with broken devices awaiting repair.
Thank you,
Mrs. Taylor
