Your Brain and Concussion
Dear Parents and Guardians, I am excited to share some important news regarding the upcoming Ferndale Elementary School (FES) and Ferndale High School (FHS) graduation ceremonies. Based on the decision by the district administration, we are thrilled to announce that FHS students will have the unique opportunity to graduate on the FHS football field this year. This decision reflects our commitment to unity and pride in attending Ferndale Unified School District. In line with this decision, the FES graduation ceremony will continue to be held in the FHS gymnasium at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 11th. The FHS graduation ceremony will take place at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, June 12th, at Carlson Field (FHS), weather permitting. Please note that the FHS graduation on Carlson Field is weather-dependent. If the FHS administration determines it will be too damp or wet to host the graduation on the football field, the ceremony will remain in the FHS gymnasium at 3:00 p.m. We believe that these changes will further enhance the sense of community and togetherness within our school district. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need further information. Warm regards, Mrs. Carmesin Ferndale Public Schools

Friday, April 5th, is lunch on the lawn (Weather permitting). Please send your child with their lunch in case lunch is canceled. We recommend that parents who are coming to attend lunch on the lawn bring a blanket to sit on and that you park and enter through the back of the school on Ocean Avenue. Friday is also our Spring Clean-up, beginning after recess. There will be no parking in the back lot near the Primary building or in the four spots in front of the school. Lastly, please send your students with clothes, boots, and gloves if you have them to ensure they are ready for our school clean-up.
