Welcome to Fountain-Fort Carson School District Eight, Colorado’s premiere school district serving the communities of Fountain and Fort Carson! Whether you will be living on our local military post or moving to a neighborhood nearby, we are so happy you are considering making District Eight your home.
PROPOSED ACADEMIC CALENDARS
Below is a link to the proposed academic calendars for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years. The calendars are quite similar to prior-year calendars. However, the calendar falls where school starts a week later. The calendars also reduce the number of four-day weeks which has been a concern for elementary teachers.JANUARY IS SCHOOL
The calendars will be presented for approval at the February 25, 2015 Board Meeting.
BOARD RECOGNITION MONTH
During School Board Recognition Month, we would like to thank the Fountain-Fort Carson School District Board of Education for their hard work and dedication to the staff of students of District Eight.

*Inclement Weather Procedures*
As many of you realize, the weather in Colorado can vary widely from day to day and through different parts of the Colorado Springs region. District 8 monitors the weather closely in an attempt to provide safe access to schools for students, parents and staff. Two-Hour Late Starts and/or District closures will be announced through various methods including: television, radio, the District’s website, and the Flash Alert Emergency Notification System. More information can be found regarding how you can sign up for Flash Alert by clicking on this LINK.
Please be aware that announcements for closures will list FOUNTAIN-FORT CARSON SCHOOL DISTRICT 8 as “DISTRICT 8.” This description is used to differentiate the school district from the closures or delays that may occur on Fort Carson.
If parents believe the conditions are not safe on a day when inclement weather conditions exist and the District is still open, it is always the parents’ option to keep their child at home.
Please feel free to browse through our website to learn more about our district and our commitment to “Developing Generations of World Class Learners.”
