Parent Handbook

The information provided in this handbook is designed to give general yet necessary information and guidelines that are in place at Friends School of Minnesota (FSMN). As a result, it does not cover, nor can it cover every possible situation, but it does communicate information that over the years has proved helpful to parents and students. Think of what’s included here as a compass rather than a map.

FSMN follows the decisions of the St. Paul Public Schools (SPPS) regarding school closings. WCCO (AM 830) is the best place to listen for an announcement of closings or delayed openings. We also post a closing notice on this website, and, when possible, send notices via email, text and/or voice to families and guardians.
