Happy 2019! We would like to wish you all a wonderful new year filled with happiness and good health. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “With the new year comes new strength and new thoughts,” which is exactly what we have in store for our students.

The calendar says winter is here, and we try very hard to keep the school clear of snow and ice, but we caution you to be careful while on campus. We ask the students to stay off any ice and if they do not have snow boots, they must stay on the black top and avoid the field. With the Nevada weather the way it is, on some days the afternoon can warm up enough that our students take off their jackets and leave them on the playground. Many times our lost and found pile grows during this time of the year. Please label all of your child’s coats and hoodies with their name so it is easier to return to them. If you know your child is missing an article of clothing, please look in our lost and found, which is located in the B building just past the nurse’s office where you can exit to the playground. During winter break, any leftover items will be donated to FISH.

If the weather becomes a concern, the school district has implemented a two-hour delayed start to school. This means school will not start until 10:25. Due to the late start, we will not be serving breakfast in our cafeteria on those days. If we do have a delayed start to school, it will be broadcast through the local television news programs, a recorded message will be sent by phone, and will be posted on the district and school website, which can be found at carsoncityschools.com, and on our school Facebook page so please follow it. It can be found on Facebook under Edith W. Fritsch Elementary School.

With the assistance from the Carson City Sheriff’s Office, we frequently evaluate our safety procedures and one area that has become a concern is the parking lot on the EAST side of Building A. Due to the increase traffic flow in this particular area, we will be designating that parking area as a staff parking lot only. We appreciate your understanding and your commitment to this change.

We look forward to an awesome second half of our school year! If there is anything that we can do to support you and your child’s academic experience, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Happy New Year!

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
