We would like to start by thanking you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to attend your child’s parent teacher conference. We hope the time you shared with your child’s teacher was worthwhile. One of our themes for this school year is to focus on building relationships with students and parents, and by meeting with the teacher, we have opened the door to establishing that relationship, now you have a two-way communication support for your student’s needs.

You may have seen our PAWs painted on the walls around campus that share four words that we use to build a strong social and emotional learning environment for our students. These four words are SAFE, RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and POSITVE. Our goal is to have our Fritsch students making great choices every day and doing it the right way!

Another focus here at Fritsch this year is attendance. Do you know that if your child is absent just two days a month, they are considered to be chronically absent from school? If a child misses 18 or more days of school, they may be retained and will not move on to the next grade level. Last school year, over 10% of our students were deemed chronically absent from school. Please keep this in mind when you are planning family trips. We understand that the time with family is important, but so is your child’s education.

We are experiencing true Nevada weather where it can be chilly in the morning and warm in the afternoon, because of this our Lost and Found area is growing. Please take a look in the Lost and Found before or after school if you are missing anything.

Finally, this is the season to give thanks. I want to thank all of the staff, parents, and students at Fritsch Elementary for everything they do to make this the best learning environment in Carson City.

On behalf of the staff, we would like to wish you a wonderful holiday season.

Mr. Brown and Mr. Farnworth

School Safety Information

Dear Fritsch Parents,

The well-being of your child is very important to us, so every year, we re-evaluate our Fritsch safety plan and look at ways we can improve the security of our buildings.  An area of concern for us is when we have visitors on campus and do not always know their whereabouts.  As a way to manage our campus visitors, we will now require any visitors to remain in the office while your child is called from their classroom. If you are a classroom volunteer, you must complete a volunteer application along with being fingerprinted with the school district.  We will ask our staff members to notify the office when they have a volunteer coming to work in the classroom.  We understand this might be an inconvenience for you and in no way are we trying to take you away from the wonderful educational experience your child is having at Fritsch. Our mission is to keep your child safe and that is our number one goal.

We appreciate your understanding.

Mr. Dan Brown

Principal Fritsch Elementary School
