Welcome back to Fenton High School 

The summer went by very quickly and we started the year off running. We had a fire alarm go off at 3pm on our first day of school and students responded in a very orderly way and quickly moved to safe locations with staff guidance. The first responders came, cleared the alarm and verified that the building was safe. Students were then allowed back in the building to retrieve their personal items and were dismissed for the day. We appreciate parents patience while we cleared the areas for buses to line up to take students home.

Fenton High School Open House

Join us on Thursday, August 30 from 6:45 - 8:49 p.m. for Fenton High School’s annual Open House. Wouldn't you love to follow an abbreviated version of your student’s daily class schedule? During each class period, parents will have the opportunity to meet the teacher and hear an overview of classroom highlights and expectations. There will also be an opportunity for parents to speak with school counselors and administrators. On Monday, student schedules will be emailed to you, please bring it with you on Thursday. If your student has a study hall period, please visit the Academic Resource Center (ARC), Guidance Office, Athletic Office, or the Main Office. All PE classes will meet in the Field House. Student volunteers will be in the hallways to assist you in locating classrooms.
