Excellence for Every Child
Welcome to Farragut Intermediate School, home to the Admirals!
FIS boasts a long-standing tradition of excellence. We look forward to working with you to help your children reach their full potential.
Farragut Intermediate School Mission Statement:
The mission of FIS is to enable all students to be caring, responsible, and knowledgeable citizens in a changing society by providing learning experiences in a safe and positive environment.
Our annual Knox County Coupon Book Campaign started September 13. Books are only $10. We are so happy to announce that this year $9 will be kept at FIS. The proceeds from each book sold go directly to supporting our students and teachers.
Once again we are very honored to be a designated Reward School. Reward status is the top distinction a school can earn in Tennessee. Reward schools are those that are improving overall student academic achievement and student growth for all students and for student groups, and they are identified annually. Our school recently received a banner and a certificate in celebration of this special honor. We want to thank our students, parents and community for helping us achieve this honor.
BE AN ATTENDANCE HERO!
Please make every effort to have your child at school everyday and on time. School starts at 7:45. Therefore, please be sure your child is walking through the front doors by 7:30. This allows time for him/her to settle in to class without feeling rushed. If your child is sick or needs to miss school, you must send in a note explaining the absence.
The following outlines the Knox County School Board Policy on attendance:
In order to be counted present on any and all accounting attendance records, students in grades 1-12 shall attend school for a time period of three (3) hours and thirty (30) minutes per school day. Students who attend less than three (3) hours and thirty (30) minutes per school day will be recorded and reported as absent on any and all attenance records.
