Start of School Year Learning Options:
UPDATE: August 7, 2020
Dear FCUSD families:
Every start of the school year is exciting, and this year is no different. We eagerly await our students to return, and look forward to the start of the 2020-21 school year! This will be a great year, and it will also look and feel very different from what we have all experienced in the past.
Learning will take place with physical distance and using technology in new and reimagined ways. The unfamiliarity of this might feel uneasy, even unsettling at times. You and your students may need extra time to settle into this new learning format and we want to ease concerns you may have. The expectation for the first several days of school is connection. Students and families connecting with teachers, and students connecting with peers is the priority, and this might take longer in a virtual realm than it would if we were in person.
Over the next few days, you will be hearing information from your school, regarding teacher assignments and instructions on when and how to pick up your student’s Chromebook, textbook, and other instructional materials. Our staff is trained on safety protocols and is looking forward to making sure materials distribution is safe and that students receive what they need. As such, this may take time as well.
Please expect and anticipate that the first several days of school to be a period of adjustment, connecting, and getting used to new technology, and please do not anticipate, heavy academic assignments the first few days of school. Robust learning will be taking place in new and creative ways, which is why focusing on the foundational elements of connection is an important first step.
IMPORTANT: If you are one of our new Homeschool families at the Charter school welcome! Interest in our Homeschool program was extraordinary. Due to the high levels of student enrollment and the need to connect with each family individually, we are experiencing delays as we are increasing staff to meet these needs.
Please note: Due to staffing needs, many students will initially connect with one of our trained, substitute teachers while permanent Educational Specialists are brought on board.
We apologize for any inconvenience. Please know that you and your student are important to us, and we will be in touch very soon. We are excited to help you on your journey as you become your child’s primary teacher.
We understand you may have many questions now and over the next few days. Please visit our FAQ website that has been updated today for answers to common questions.
Have a wonderful weekend, and we look forward to seeing you next week!
