We have a busy week ahead. There will be no school for students or staff on Monday, September 4 due to the Labor Day holiday. Our Book Fair will be taking place this week in the Library. We encourage you to come and eat lunch with your child and visit the Book Fair. On Tuesday, September 5, the Atrium Mobile Food Pantry will be at Forest City Dunbar from 5:00-6:00. This is a drive-thru event, and all of our families are welcome to come and receive food. Our first PTO meeting of this school year is also this Tuesday at 6:00 pm.

Good Evening Forest City-Dunbar Families,
Tomorrow, Monday, August 28, is make-up picture day. If your child is having their picture made, they may wear an outfit other than their uniform.
For those of you that have children that ride one of our buses, please continue to be patient with the drivers and the times. We hope that the pick-up and drop-off times will become more consistent soon.
Thank you for your continued support, and please reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
Have a great week!
Good evening Forest-City Dunbar Families,
Please continue to be patient with our bus drivers and the times for morning pick-ups and afternoon drop-offs. We are now sharing buses with Spindale Elementary and we are working to get everything situated with the routes.
Please note that there should be no transportation changes after 2:30pm each day. It is difficult to get this information to your child's teacher after this time. Also, please do not check your student out after 2:45pm each day. If you need to check them out early you will need to do so before 2:45pm. It is important to be mindful of early checkouts and tardies as this interferes with your child's instructional time.
If your child arrives to school after 8:15am, then you will need to walk them into the building and sign them in. Also, if you are going to be leaving the main office area and going into the building for any reason, you will need to get a visitor's pass in the office. Your child's safety is our main priority.
We are looking forward to a great week, and we appreciate your support and understanding.
