Update November 10, 2020

UPDATE: Message to Families November 10, 2020

Elementary schools transitioned to the Hybrid model schedule this week. Close to 4900 FCUSD students will be back on all 20 elementary school campuses for in-person learning on November 12. 

You may have learned that Sacramento County has regressed to Purple Tier status as of today. To see more information, please visit the county’s website here. We have heard from Dr. Kasirye that Sacramento County Public Health will be updating the Health Order this Friday.

Our status to reopen Elementary in a Hybrid model was initiated in Red Tier status on November 9. Therefore, our plan to bring students onto campus this Thursday, November 12 remains in place. We will continue to follow health and safety guidelines set forth by public health.

We value the collaboration we have with our staff and bargaining leaders. MOUs addressing health and safety measures, as well as impacts and effects of the working conditions for Elementary teachers as we transition to in-person Hybrid and Virtual Academy instruction, have been discussed, bargained, and agreed upon. Please see the following links to the signed MOU agreements between FCUSD and FCEA.

Health and Safety MOU 11-10-2020

Health and Safety Attachments 11.4-2020

Elementary Hybrid MOU 11-10-2020

We are excited to safely reopen and we need everyone’s help to follow these safety guidelines: Please remember:

  • Passive screening before coming to campus
  • Family Agreement - please sign and return to your school site
  • All students and staff on campus must wear a face covering
  • Staff and students must follow on-campus directions for social distancing and hand sanitization. 

Reminder: Free Surveillance Testing for staff and community members is available through Sacramento County Public Health. Information can be found here.

If you have elected to return your student to in-person learning, a reminder about contact tracing: 

Contact tracing will be conducted at the site level using the COVID-19 Illness and Quarantine Guidelines. Please click here to view. (Document provided by the California School Nurses Organization)

Should any staff or student be confirmed testing positive for COVID-19, all individuals within close contact will be notified and asked to quarantine for 14 days.

We know there are many questions and concerns regarding a transition to in-person learning. Your student’s school site and the District office will continue to keep you informed and updated. We are fully committed to the well-being and safety of our students and staff.
