Remember, high school is far more than the end of education. Its the beginning of the next steps.Introduction To RegistrationDo not request courses already taken, or will be taken during the remainder of this school year. Credit is only awarded once per course.Make sure that all prerequisites are satisfied. Introduction To RegistrationAsk questions of homeroom teachers and deans to guarantee that course requests are done accurately and appropriately. Study the registration information on the FLHS website to learn about requirements and prerequisites.Check out the FAQs pages.Introduction To Registration The final responsibility for course selection rests entirely with students and parents or guardians. When in doubt, ASK.Registration NotesSign up for 14 classes, plus 3 alternates. Any spaces left empty will be chosen for you.Watch for prerequisites!Registration NotesDo not sign up for a class that is not listed on your registration sheet. It will not count, and an alternate class will be used.Double Check your course numbers - 1 out of 4 students copy down the course number incorrectly and end up in the WRONG CLASS!Schedule changes are only allowed for the following reasons and must be completed before the quarter begins:Student is missing a prerequisite for a class on his/her schedule.Student is lacking a class required for graduation or college admission.Student is academically misplaced.Schedule Changes Continued...Students who meet the previous criteria may make schedule changes before the first day of the term.After fifteen (15) days into a term, a student who drops a course will receive a final grade of F for that course.Registration Open HouseActual registration will be done in an open house format from 4-8 pm on February 5 and February 9.
