Food Service Information
Please read the letter linked below for food service information for the 2015-2016 school year.
Thanks to a generous donation by an anonymous donor Frontenac Schools will be fully 1:1 this upcoming school year K-12!
To help maintain and insure the devices that students take home in grades 6-12 a technology fee has been added for the 2015-2016 school year. The fee of $50 is only required for students grades 6-12 who elect to take the devices home. The fee will help offset the cost of repairs and upkeep of the devices. Students will be assigned a device which they will have until they are promoted from middle school to high school or graduate from high school. Students will not take the devices home during the summer.
With the adoption of a 1:1 initative we have a new technology policy which can be found by clicking here.

FRONTENAC — In the first half, the Frontenac Raiders had no points to show for 159 yards of total offense and eight first downs.
No points until a second-and-10 play from the St. Mary's Colgan 29 with 7.2 seconds remaining before halftime.
The Panther defense forced Frontenac senior quarterback Austin Seward into a mad dash for his life and as the clock ticked down to zeroes, Seward found enough precious time to fire a bullet to sophomore Ryan Long at the Colgan 2. Long darted into the end zone and Frontenac broke a scoreless stalemate for a 6-0 halftime advantage.

The tearing up and resurfacing of the Raiders’ track shouldn’t interfere with the fall season football season and will create a top-notch new surface for the track team come spring.
The replacement, which will provide a second life for 12,067 recycled tires, is being funded by a $147,000 Kansas Department of Health and Environment Solid Waste Grant.
“Everybody’s green now, and we wanted to come up with a green product,” said Mike Dixon, a resident of Frontenac who also is president of Track Renovations, the company doing the resurfacing.
He said used tires are one of the most difficult items to
“You can’t take it to the landfill and you can’t burn it,” Dixon said. “The fees you pay to dispose of the tire, that goes in a fund and is used for grants. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
FRONTENAC — Using iPads to learn makes education "kind of funner" for Brooke Banks.
Banks, a fourth grader in Tim Vesco’s class at Frontenac’s Frank Layden Elementary is in one of four elementary and four junior high classrooms testing out iPads in education before a 1:1 initiative goes district-wide in coming years.
"We’re just a few days in, but I’ve already seen a lot more enthusiasm to try things out and to work with the iPad," Vesco said. "I want to see the kids not just using it as a sub for papers."
Vesco said initially students are getting a feel for the screens, but in coming months will be doing all sorts of project-based learning, including making green screen movies, blogging and more.
