If a school employee finds it necessary to confiscate a device, he/she may either return it at the end of the class period or school day or keep it until the principal or designee has consulted with the student's parent/guardian.

3rd - 5th Grade: Request to walk or bike to Fern Elementary

Please complete this form if you are requesting for your student to bike or walk to and/or from school.  We will review all requests and contact you to confirm.  

Students that bike to and/or from school must come into the office to complete the bike test.  It should take less than 10 minutes to complete.  Students MUST wear a helmet and have a bike lock.

PLEASE NOTE: Students must bike/walk directly home after school and should not linger around the school or park.  If we find students are not following this procedure, we have the right to revoke this request and require students to be released to an adult.
