Student Drop-off & Pick-up
This is a second reminder that for our parents who drive their high school children to school that they will need to drop their student off at the Freshman entrance. Students entering the school through the front entrance will need to use the Freshman entrance for the first few weeks of school. Parents are encouraged to pull into the front parking lot, as usual, and then proceed to the crosswalk in front of the Freshman wing. No one will be able to use the main entrance to the building until the construction in that area is completed, which is anticipated to ready sometime October or early November.
All visitors to Findlay High School will also need to use either the Freshman entrance or the rear student entrance to the high school. As always, our security personnel will be there to greet you and assist in directing you to your destination. It is our goal to make Findlay High School a safe and welcoming place for our students, faculty, staff and parents. We appreciate your patience as we work to complete this construction project. Please feel free to contact my secretary, Ms. Benavidez, at 419-425-8278 with  specific concerns regarding this construction transition. She will be able to direct your questions and concerns to the appropriate department or personnel.
Findlay High School season ticket information will be available at the Football Scrimmage at Donnell Stadium on Thursday, August 14 beginning at 5:00.   Current season ticket holders who have paid can pick up their tickets at the stadium, and new season tickets will be available for purchase.   Any tickets not picked up Thursday night will be mailed.   The cost of a reserved seat season ticket is $45; box seats are $50.

The Mission of the Findlay High School is to develop within each student the ability to recognize and realize their individual potential to be lifelong learners who are caring, flexible, contributing citizens in an ever changing society. This is accomplished through families, students, staff, and community working together to provide a positive atmosphere where all students can attain the virtues necessary to achieve their mental, physical, and emotional potential.
If you need assistance with setting up your students / parent progress book access, please go to this link off the FHS website.  It is on the right side column called:  Progress Book Assistance.
Please fill in the form completely, with your student's full name and your full name.  If you just need the registration code, please state that and one will be sent to you.  Parents and students each have their own code.  If you are having other issues, please explain your situation and someone will contact you.
Email Alerts are now available for Progress Book:  Once you have registered for a Progress Book account, you can go to the Family Information section on the left side and click on Alerts.  You can have an email sent to you for when your student is missing assignments or has received a low assignment score.  You must check the appropriate boxes and click the Set Low Marks Settings to view the classes you wish to see low scores associated. You MUST choose a letter grade for each subject you wish to receive the alert about.
