• Latest Update | September 28: Superintendent's Update

    Dear Fisher Middle-High Families,

    Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we finalize reopening plans. As I’ve shared previously, we want to be certain of our timeline prior to making it public. Our word to you matters, especially when you are dealing with so much uncertainty as you recover from Hurricane Ida. 

    Fisher Middle-High students will return to school at the John Ehret High campus on Wednesday, October 6. Fisher Middle-High teachers will report virtually Thursday, September 30 and in-person to the John Ehret High campus Monday, October 4. This timeline allows us to finalize the logistic and operational elements that will support Fisher Middle-High students, employees, and families from their designated buildings on the John Ehret High campus. 

    The timeline also allows John Ehret High students, employees, and families to adjust to shifts they are making in order to welcome Fisher Middle-High. As a tier 3 school, John Ehret High educators will return September 29, and students will return October 1. 

    This temporary plan is based on the long-term solution for Fisher’s campus. We will continue to keep you updated throughout this process. Please continue to persevere, remain resilient, and look after one another. 

    Dr. James Gray

    September 24: Superintendent's Update

    Dear Fisher Family, 

    Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we work to resume a safe and welcoming in-person learning environment for both children and employees. As we shared Wednesday, our plan for Fisher to operate its own school from a shared campus with Ehret is temporary. This plan is based on the long-term solution for Fisher’s campus. Once we identify the long-term solution, we will share with you. 

    As I mentioned yesterday, we created a campus map below that shows the buildings Fisher will operate out of. We will continue to update this map and share it with you as our Fisher, Ehret and district administrative team are continuously working to finalize logistics and plans. Fisher will have its own school time from 7:15 a.m. to 2:35 p.m. They will have their own building, classrooms, lunch, duty and bell schedule, parking for students and staff, and drop-off & pick-up area. Fisher middle school and Fisher high school students will also have separate bell schedules like they did earlier this school year while on Fisher’s campus. 

    Mayor Kerner and School Board member Tiffany Higgins-Kuhn will also conduct a walk-through of the Ehret campus next week. Continuous communication is key to ensuring a smooth reopening, so we will share another update with you next Tuesday and as-needed. 

    Throughout this challenging time, we will move forward with meeting the needs of both your child and our community. We will continue to show up for our students and one another. 

    Dr. James Gray
