Daily Attendance for Remote Learning

Students click here to self report your daily attendance




Attention Students -  You must self report your daily attendance below.  The attendance tracker will be open each morning by 8:00 am and it will close at 9:00 pm.  Once attendance closes at 9:00 pm there is no way to enter.  

Students - please check your email throughout the school day (both personal and pupil path) for important updates from the school and/or from your teachers.





Dear Forest Hills High School Community:

 

Starting April 9th students and their families will be able to take advantage of some engaging opportunities designed to help our community to work together on interesting and enriching tasks.  While we have dedicated April 9th and 10th to opportunities for students to catch up on work that has not been completed, students can continue to get caught up the other days as the family activities are not that long in duration.  No new work will be assigned until April 20th when remote learning will continue. School buildings will be closed through April 29th at a minimum according to the latest from Governor Cuomo and Chancellor Carranza. These are ever-shaping news items we are keeping track of.

 

Attendance is still being registered during this time period.  Please log in to record that you are present at: https://www.foresthillshs.org/apps/news/show_news.jsp?REC_ID=624219&id=0.  Students will record their reactions to and feedback from the schedule of activities below as part of their daily attendance.  Many in our community are entering into a period of religious observance.  It is understood that they might not be able to log their attendance on days of observance.  All other students should continue to log their attendance each day.

 

To all of our community members, I send you warm regards and wish peace and calm for us all during this difficult time.  All of our thoughts and prayers are particularly focused on those members of our community who are struggling in this time of uncertainty. Please reach out to us if you have a need. Included here is a link for everyone that includes important health resources that are easily accessed through the FHHS website.  https://www.foresthillshs.org/apps/news/show_news.jsp?REC_ID=623570&id=0.  Additionally, city food resources are noted here https://www.opt-osfns.org/schoolfoodny/meals/default.aspx and https://maps.nyc.gov/foodhelp/.  

Best,

Paul Wilbur, Principal
