Fort Zumwalt School District has partnered with Healthy Schools to bring flu shots to our students who are signed up for it this fall.  The CDC recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu vaccine every season. This program allows parents to sign their child up to be vaccinated by Healthy Schools at school for a $0 copay. An opt-in was included with your online registration. If you missed it, use the button below to sign up. 

PTO is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair beginning this week.  It will be open during the school day only Thursday, October 18 - Tuesday, October 23.   On Wednesday, October 24, the Book Fair will be open during the school day.  It will close after school and will be moved to the large gym and will be open throughout all of Parent-Teacher conferences.   

Spirit Wear:  The initial order is due November 1.   After November 1, an online store will open for the remainder of the school year.    Sample shirts with the designs and sizes will be on display during conferences.

LOST & FOUND:  We have reached that time of year when jackets, hoodies and coats are getting left behind.   Our Lost & Found is starting to fill up.  We know that every article of clothing hanging up or in the tubs came to school with one of our students.   Please remind your child to remember what they wore to school and to ask for time to look for items in the lost and found, if they think they left something behind at recess, in PE, in the cafeteria, etc.  Parents, you may also come up to school to take a look, too.  Our Lost & Found is located near the recess doors.  


Halloween Parties:  We will be holding our Halloween Parties from 9-10 AM on October 31st At 10 AM, parents will be asked to leave school so the remainder of the school day will return to our typical focus on academics.  There will not be JET on this day.  This is also an early release day.  We will dismiss at 1:10 PM.

  • *Kindergarten students may wear costumes to school and then change out of the costume following the party.

  • *1st – 5th grade students may bring a costume to school to change into for the party and will change again following the party. 

  • *Costumes must be school appropriate, including NO MASKS, NO WEAPONS, AND NO FACE PAINT.  Please send costumes that students can easily change into and out of on their own. 

  • *Parents are welcome to come to the school party.

  • *Parents MUST have a school volunteer (background request) form on file.  One MUST be completed this school year.  Please turn in by Monday, October 22.
