PARENT SERVICE HOURS

Volunteering is part of the Parent Pledge and helps to keep the tuition and fees low. Each K-12th grade student’s family is expected to perform service hours, as outlined below, for FHCS. This can be done in a variety of ways and ideas/jobs will be posted via e-mail and on the entry bulletin board. In addition, parents may choose to either:

  • Provide the minimum number of required service hours to the school;
    or
  • Serve 20% of the required service hours and then buy-out the remaining hours at the rate of $20 per hour.

Minimum number of required service hours per fiscal year (June 1-July 30):

a. Household of K4 student — 10 hours of approved service
b. Single parent household of full-time student — 15 hours of approved service
c. Dual parent household of full-time student — 30 hours of approved service

Twenty-percent of the required service hours per fiscal year (June 1-July 30):

a. Household of K4 student — 2 hours of approved service
b. Single parent household of full-time student — 3 hours of approved service
c. Dual parent household of full-time student — 6 hours of approved service

 This contribution would not be considered a tax-deductible donation, since it is in place to help reduce tuition.
