FCUSD schools will begin the 2020-21 school year in a Distance Learning model. Planning details are ongoing and information will be updated on our website at:
Please continue to check this website often for information and resources to documents and links.
If you missed the dates and times for Chromebook and Initial Material pick up (textbooks, etc.) please come by the school any time between 9:00am and 3:00pm any day to pick up your child's needed materials.
It is best to call the school prior when possible in order to best ensure that the correct materials are available and staff is available to hand it out. If you the above time do not work for your schedule please contact Mr. Bosque at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will make arrangements for you to get the materials.
Schedules During Distance Learning

Dear Peter J. Shields Families,
Our first day back had many “glows” and a few “grows” as well, as we embarked together on this new experience of Distance Learning. I know that MANY of you had varying degrees of success when it came to connecting with your teachers, or the learning programs, or even navigating the Chromebook. I want you to know that my staff and District leadership is aware of these challenges.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no attendance penalties during this first week of school.
During these first few days, you may see an attendance code that says absent or not engaged pop up in Powerschool. PLEASE DISREGARD. We want to give time for technology issues to be resolved and for teachers to connect with their students.
As a reminder, if you need technical support, please submit a Support Request, with your student(s) name and school, on this website: www.fcusd.org/tech
We understand there are challenges with Distance Learning, and we are in this together with you. So please take a deep breath and hang in there with us. We look forward to robust learning as soon as we are all connected.
Ted Bosque, Principal
