In order to provide the highest quality education, FCDS has thoughtfully modified some of the daily routines to accommodate health mandates and create more opportunities for academic learning. Please review the following enhancements to our fall program. Additional grade-specific information will be provided from Division Heads in the next two weeks.

Early Fridays. With increased instructional learning created in the daily schedules, all students will end Friday school days after lunch, beginning at 1pm. Friday early dismissals will allow necessary time for faculty professional development and deep facility cleaning.

Lunch. To begin the school year, cohorts will eat lunch together outdoors or in classrooms.

Athletics. Physical education instruction for Lower School boys and on-campus sports will be modified for Middle and Upper School boys. 

Dress Code. To ensure the comfort of our boys in athletics and academics, FCDS is relaxing the dress code for Grades 4-9 for the fall semester. 
Boys in all grades should wear:
  • Collared shirt
  • Shorts or pants (no cargo, denim, or gym shorts) 
  • Belt
  • Sneakers
  • Face covering

Staggered Drop Off / Pick Up Times. Each cohort will use a designated school entrance and a time slot for entering and exiting the School.
