Update: Message to FCUSD Families

December 9, 2020


Dear FCUSD Families, 

As you may have heard the Greater Sacramento area has fallen below 15% ICU available capacity, and the Regional Stay at Home order will go into effect this Thursday at midnight.

As stated by the Governor, schools that have opened in Red Tier status may remain open. Please see the excerpt below from the website:

The Order does not modify existing state guidance regarding K-12 schools.

Schools that are currently open are able to continue to provide in-person instruction on school sites.

  • Schools that are currently operating under an elementary school waiver are able to continue to provide instruction to students on school sites.
  • Schools that reopened while their county was in a less restrictive tier are able to continue to provide instruction to students on school sites.
  • All schools that have not yet reopened for in-person instruction are able to continue to serve small cohorts of students (e.g., students with disabilities) following CDPH Guidance.

Schools are still required to follow the Schools Guidance issued by CDPH which outlines requirements for safe conditions, testing and tracing. Schools may be required to close if certain percentages of staff and students are diagnosed with COVID-19. All existing guidance applicable to schools can be found on the CDPH website.

FCUSD schools and programs, remaining open include:

  • Elementary Hybrid
  • Special Education cohorts:
    • Preschool
    • TK - 12
    • 18-22-year-old program
  • Expanded Day Learning
  • Child Care

We are working closely with Sacramento County Public Health to follow all guidelines for the safety and health of the entire FCUSD community. Please continue to practice all recommended safety measures:

  • Wear a mask
  • Socially Distance
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Do not gather in close contact groups, outside of your immediate household
