Attire: Students do not wear a cap and gown and there are no dress requirements, however typically students dress up for the occasion in appropriate dress wear to include slacks, button downs, collared shirts, skirts and/or dresses. Please no stilettos as this will damage the stadium turf; wedge shoes are welcomed.

Parking: Parking is limited and carpool is strongly encouraged. Families and guests should park in the General Parking lot to the right of the school and on streets neighboring the school. Please be mindful and respectful to residents in the FHS neighborhood. Promotion Parking
