Folsom Police Department Red Ribbon Poster Contest.

We can’t believe it is almost here! Red Ribbon Week is just around the corner and entries for our 2019 Red Ribbon Week Poster Contest are due on October 17, 2019. 

Remember! One student at each FCUSD elementary school will win a bike!


Student Health Update: Lice.

The fall and winter months are a predominant time for head lice because children are spending more time indoors in close proximity to others.

 Therefore, it is important that parents screen their children regularly for lice at home. If lice are detected, please contact the school health office so that we can take steps to address this concern in the school setting. 



Steps to Volunteering at Folsom Hills.

  1. Obtain a Folsom Hills volunteer application. At Empire Oaks and Gallardo, make sure you pick up the orange Folsom Hills application. Fill out the front and back. You may turn in at all locations, but there maybe a delay in process. For fastest turn around, turn into the Folsom Hills office.
  2. Principal Lundberg will review and clear you to volunteer.
  3. Obtain a current TB test. If you have had a test within the past 4 years, it is still valid.
  4. Make an appointment at the district office to have your fingerprints done (see green bar below). Be sure to follow directions for what to bring to your appointment.
