    April 6, 2022

    Dear FCUSD Community,

    The COVID-19 Dashboard has been updated. Please visit: www.fcusd.org/COVID

    Free COVID test kits for students

    This week, students will receive an at-home test kit provided to us from the state; (2) two tests per kit.

    • It is recommended that your student test if they are symptomatic and/or have been exposed to COVID-19 during Spring Break.
    • These at-home test kits are optional, and their use is not required to attend class. 
      • If you do not plan to use the kit, please return it unopened to your school site.
    • We do not know if additional kits will be available.
    • Instructions for using the test are included in the kit.

    Please look for more information to come from your school site directly.

    Leadership opportunities for secondary students

    Student leadership is an important component in guiding school and district priorities. Middle and High School students have an opportunity to inform District leadership and represent student voice. 

    The District is now accepting applications for Student Advisory Board Members (SAB) reps and Student Board Members. To learn more about these opportunities, and locate applications, please visit this website: https://www.fcusd.org/Domain/3365
