New Fredericksburg High School Principal Ralf Halderman is stoked about the new school year. He has gotten to know the staff in his seven years as assistant principal at FHS, and he is encouraged by the quality of instructors and staff.

But Halderman wants parents to know the school is serious about consequences for student drug use. That will be one of the topics at the annual Parent Informational Session, set for 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 19 at the FHS auditorium.

“I hope we get a huge turnout,” he said. “In the past, the information session has been about the dress code, tardy policies or cell-phone policies, but we want to offer things that parents will use — not just to meet each other.”

Halderman has a son who will be a junior at FHS (and a daughter who graduated from FHS in 2008). This year, students will be asked to help shoulder the burden of making the campus drug free by helping inform a campus officer about drug use.
