FOLSOM HIGH SCHOOL                                        TUESDAY, SEPT. 15, 2020

We are excited to share a re-imagined Back-to-School experience with you. It is important to us that we take time to explain the academic culture in our many subject areas and that we provide students and their families with the support they need to meet their academic goals.  

This year, teachers will communicate these important messages by creating a video for each of their classes that can be watched on demand. The links to these videos will be shared in two ways:

  • Starting Thursday, September 3rd, each teacher will send an email to the parents of their students with a direct link to their Back-to-School video.
  • A link to the same video will also be placed in every Google Classroom. Students have access to their Google Classrooms and can share these Back-to-School videos with their parent/guardians upon request.

 It is our hope that these videos will be convenient and informative. Please take time to view these videos and to learn more about the ways we can partner to support your student during the 2020-2021 school year.
