Does my child's school offer breakfast and lunch?

We operate an excellent nutrition program at each campus. Our cafeterias serve breakfast and lunch every school day for a reasonable price. We also participate in the National School  Lunch Program for those who qualify for federal assistance.

What is the Infinite Campus portal and how do I use it?

Infinite Campus is just another way we keep communication between home and school strong. It provides you with almost real-time access to your child’s grades, attendance history, payment information, and other important information. We’ve already set up an account for all students in grades 6–12. Just use your district account username and password to access your grades and other information.

How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join the PTO at your school and attend our governing board meetings to make your voice heard! Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including the following:

  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep 
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast at school)
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes

How can I find out about emergencies or school closures due to inclement weather?

For emergencies or school closures, the school district will use the Infinite Campus Messenger system to send telephone, text, and/or email messages to parents. It is extremely important for parents to update any changes to their phone numbers or email addresses. Parents can make updates quickly via the parent portal or by notifying the school,  We’ll also make inclement weather announcements on Lander radio stations KOVE (1330 AM) and/or KDLY (97.5 FM).

How will my child be graded in the Fremont #1 schools, and how will I know how he/she is progressing?

The goal of Fremont County School District #1 is to improve student learning by reporting grades that are accurate, consistent, meaningful, and supportive of learning. We use standards referenced grading to reach that goal.

To help you keep up on how your child is progressing, we report both quarter (nine-week) and semester grades to parents and hold parent/teacher conferences in the fall and spring. Midway through each quarter of the year, we'll send home progress reports to inform parents of any situation that could lead to a student not receiving credit for a class.
