One of the many challenges Freeland Schools has going into the start of school is the distribution of tech devices to our 2-12 "in-person" students and our Y5-12 "virtual" students. To make this happen, we are looking for volunteers (a great way for students to get service hours) to help us set up for our distribution. Work will be at Freeland Elementary School any time Monday, Aug. 17 - Thursday, Aug. 20 between 9:00 am - 12:00 pm. Those interested can contact Kelly Baker at email@example.com for more information.

2020-21 Athletic Registration Starting in the 2020-21 school year, Freeland athletes will register online at FamilyId.com. This registration process will take the place of the athletic green card that was used in the past. Parents/athletes will log in, create an account and complete the registration process. This includes verification of the athletes sports physical, concussion education page, the athletic handbook, and other key information. This information is contained in the registration process, but for the 2020-21 school year, IF your athlete has a physical on file in the athletic office from the 2019-20 school year, then a complete new physical form MAY NOT be needed. In the registration process, you will answer 14 key medical questions (THE MHSAA HEALTH QUESTIONNAIRE). If all of your answers are no, and the 2019-20 physical is on file, then a new full physical is NOT needed. If any of the answers to the health questionnaire questions is yes, then a full physical IS REQUIRED before an athlete can participate in a practice/or tryout. If the athlete does not have a physical on file from 2019-20, they are also required to complete a full physical before a practice/or tryout. If you have any questions concerning this new process for the 2020-21 school year, please contact the athletic office at 989-695-5986, or email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the registration process is completed, we will be notified. Payment of the athletic registration fee is required before the first practice or tryout date. The registration fee can be mailed to: Freeland High School, Athletics 8250 Webster Rd. Freeland, MI 49623, or dropped off at the high school starting August 3, 2020 We hope that electronic registration make the process easier. We are hoping to have a full school year and a full sports year starting in the fall. As we get closer to the August start dates for fall sports, we will have more information on the status of the upcoming season.

Not only are the Senior banners up around Freeland, but next week each member of the Class of 2020 will receive, with their cap and gown, a print of the banner. Our community is amazing. Community members, parents, Freeland alumni, and so many individuals gave something to make this possible. Businesses and organizations contributed as well, including the Freeland Lions Club, the Freeland Chamber of Commerce, Leaman’s Green Applebarn, Freeland Bean & Grain, United Financial Credit Union, Lady Jane’s Quilt Shop, and so many more... A special thanks to Katryn Coman and the FHS Class of 1970, without whom, this would not have happened, and to our great partners at Tittabawassee Township. Donations more than paid for the project, and we are working on using the remainder to assure the FHS Class of 2020 is made to feel as special as they truly are.

Due to challenges regarding children congregating at our schools, especially our fields, beginning immediately, and in effect throughout the State of Michigan's "stay-at-home" order, we are not allowing students on school property without one of their parents present. We have begun communicating this today, and will have signs up on Monday. Please share this information with others as we cannot have groups of children coming together like this. We hope this eliminates the problem, while still allowing families to use our facilities while practicing appropriate social distancing.
Attention FHS parents/students: The yearbook wants to capture the meaningful experiences of our students. as they stay home & stay safe! Share a description (20-45 words) & picture to Ms. Krygier at email@example.com. We look forward to seeing what everyone has been doing! DEADLINE: April 24.

FREELAND STUDENTS WALK A MILE IN HER SHOES FREELAND - On Thursday, April 18, 2019, over 250 Freeland High School students will participate in a March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, & Gender Violence. The March, including students of both genders, will begin in the Burger King parking lot, at the corner of Freeland and Midland Road, in Freeland, at 9:45 am. From there, students will walk along Washington Road to Webster Road, and end at FHS. This March is the culminating activity of an FHS Student Council and Be the Change project to raise awareness about this issue, and support the Underground Railroad, an organization focused on providing shelter and services for the survivors of domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault. Freeland High School teacher and organizer Jen Neal is excited about the interest that she is seeing from students to support this cause, and hopes that members of the community would join to march with the students or just come and cheer us on the sidelines. “We welcome anyone from the community that would like to join us and support this worthy cause.”
