Our school year begins August 31 in Distance Learning mode. We recommend each student have their own laptop with a camera and microphone for Distance Learning. Some tablets have compatibility issues with the Microsoft Teams platform and online learning programs.

School laptops are available for check-out if needed (while supplies last). If your child needs to borrow a laptop or a Wifi hotspot, please complete this form by Friday, August 21.

It’s time for residency verification! Every returning Finney student must provide documentation of residency. Click here for the residency verification form. Click here for the 2nd Family Affidavit (if home is in someone else’s name). Past due bills are ok this year only. Please scan/take a photo of your documents and email to us, or you can drop off forms in person.

We are scheduling a Drive Thru materials distribution for Thursday, August 27-Friday, August 28 to make sure kids have what they need to start the school year.

Digital Citizenship is important! Please review expectations for online behavior with your children. You can discuss the Finney expectations (Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Responsible) and what this means online. This pertains whether they are doing school work or playing a game with friends. Common Sense Media is a valuable resource for parents. Check out this article about the popular game Fortnite.
