Ferndale 2020 Reopening Plans

Wednesday, September 2, was the first day of school!

Many members of our staff and community have worked all summer on developing plans for reopening school this fall. We have designed this webpage as a place for you to access those plans. Please know that our work continues, and we will be adding to the various sections of this page on a daily basis. If the information you need is not here the first time you look, please check back the following day. Or enter your question into the box at the bottom of the page, and someone will get back to you.
Thank you for your ongoing support, patience, and flexibility as we work to create the best possible education for your children in the midst of this pandemic.
