    Dear FCUSD community,

    Congratulations to all students, staff, and families for the dedication to education you demonstrated over the last year. Today marks the end of the school year for many and we hope you will take time over the summer to spend time with family and friends, read good books and enjoy a safe summer break. If you have not already seen it, please take a moment to hear Superintendent, Dr. Sarah Koligian’s end-of-year message by clicking HERE.

    For our high school graduates, we are so proud of you for persevering through a historic year and completing your high school career in the midst of a pandemic. We wish you joy and success as you pursue your ambitions and hope you will remain lifelong learners. Please keep in touch and know that you will always be part of the FCUSD family.

    Over these next few days, we will be collecting photographs of our graduating seniors, and 8th and 5th-grade students who are promoting to the next chapter in their educational journey. Watch for those to be posted on our District’s Facebook page in the upcoming days.

    A gentle reminder that Monday, May 31 is Memorial Day, and all schools and District offices will be closed in remembrance of the many men and women in the armed forces, who lost their lives in service to our country.
