General Questions

  • My child needs to gather personal items left at school. How can that be arranged?
    School buildings are currently closed.  Therefore, students are still not being permitted to enter school buildings. Once the restriction has been lifted, we will communicate that information to the community for students to set an appointment to visit the school and gather their material. 

    How can I get a refund for the services or fundraisers that have been canceled?  
    Each school/department will review the status of families who may be due a refund as a result of the school closure. Refund requests will be complied and processed in the coming weeks. Please look for communication from either your child's principal or the appropriate department with further information. 

    I haven’t received any district emails, who can help me? 
    If you are not receiving district communications, please email Kristin.Ledford@Fraserk12.org.

    I want to receive text message alerts when the district sends out a communication. How can I sign up?
    On your mobile device, text the word 'Yes' to 67587. Please note, your mobile number must be associated with a student in PowerSchool in order for it to work.

    What about major events, such as kindergarten and 6th-grade promotion celebrations, graduation, and prom?  
    With the Executive Order form Gov. Whitmer, we do not know when we will be able to host these celebrations. When we have more information and it is safe to reschedule, we will work on a plan to celebrate the Senior Class of 2020.
