    Student Day Requirements: Please check the updated Student Day requirements for each student’s level. They are available on the fmta.org website. A few inconsistencies have been reported; however, the FSMTA revision committee is working diligently to correct any of these inconsistencies.  

    Student’s Schedules: All applications have been submitted, and the scheduling should be complete by mid-February. Each student’s schedule will be emailed to their teacher.

    Teachers/Staff: An email will be forthcoming detailing the time and place to meet for briefings on Student Day. Your participation and support are greatly appreciated!

    We are looking forward to a great 2019 District Student Day!
