Thank you to the Class of 1978 for their wonderful donation of 4 maple trees! Also thank you to the maintenance dept for picking up and delivering the trees and FSHS groundsman, Shawn Parker, for setting them in the ground. Many future generations of Polar Bears will enjoy the shade from these great trees!

We have been made aware of a social media hoax on FSHS through snap chat. The WV Fusion Center put out an alert to this sort of thing happening on social media sites and then being taken down immediately after posting. City PD and Sheriff Riffle are aware as well as their SROs. There will be increased patrols around the schools in the county last night and today. There is no credible threat to FSHS at this time. Kettering Fairmont HS in Dayton, OH is where the threat came from, not Fairmont Senior High School in Fairmont, WV
