May 6 COVID-19 update: Yard signs recognize F-M Class of 2020 graduates

Yard signs that support and cheer on Fayetteville-Manlius High School’s Class of 2020 are now available for purchase. 

FM Education Foundation is selling double-sided yard signs recognizing this year’s senior class. Personalized signs are $20, and signs without personalization are $15. Each double-sided sign is 18″ tall and 24” wide, made of vinyl/corrugated plastic board and includes a yard sign stand.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on students, FM Education Foundation this year is providing each F-M Class of 2020 member with one non-personalized sign at no cost. Families do not need to pre-order the complimentary sign, but can purchase a vinyl sticker that affixes to the sign and is personalized with a graduate’s name for $5.

Orders must be placed online by May 15 and signs will be delivered to homes through contactless delivery by May 31. 

According to the FM Education Foundation’s website, its mission is to enhance the academic experience of students by partnering with the community and educators to create innovative opportunities that are beyond the district’s curriculum and resources.

Stadium will be lit up for seniors

On May 15, F-M High School’s athletic stadium lights will turn on at 8:20 p.m. and shine bright for 20 minutes in honor of the Class of 2020. 

F-M residents can show F-M pride and join the celebration by turning on their homes’ exterior lights (or holiday lights, if they’re installed) during this time. 

Community members wishing to view the illuminated stadium on May 15 should do so from a distance and while remaining inside their motor vehicles. The district’s outdoor facilities, including F-M’s athletic stadium, remain closed to the public.  As such, social gatherings are not permitted.

Continued communications

The district will continue to update the community via the district website with any new information and frequently asked questions.

Any time-sensitive, critical information will be shared via the district’s SchoolMessenger notification system, which sends email, text message and phone call notifications, depending upon how parents subscribed to the system.
