School Closure

Based on the CDC guidelines and Governor Newsom’s press conference on March 17th, we are dismissing school (temporary school closure) for eight weeks starting from our initial closure date of Monday, March 16, 2020.  We are tentatively scheduled to reopen school on Monday, May 11, 2020; however, this date may change based on the COVID-19 situation. During Governor Newsom’s press conference he indicated that schools could remain on dismissal status for the remainder of this school year. 

 

Free Breakfast and Lunch to FSD Students

Fullerton School District will continue to offer FREE breakfast and lunch to all children under the age of 18 through curbside pick up at all school sites (except for jr. high schools) from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Children must be present in order to receive their lunch meal. In addition, breakfast can be picked up for the following day.

 

Free Internet Option

For families without home Internet access, Spectrum is offering FREE INTERNET for 60 days. Please call 1-844-488-8395. We have many optional learning resources on our website and it would greatly benefit your family to take advantage of this FREE Internet offer. 

 

COVID-19 Updates

For up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 guidelines and the Fullerton School District, please visit our district website: www.fullertonsd.org

 

KROC Update

The Kids Run the OC team has been hard at work making sure students can still celebrate their accomplishments in the midst of this school closure. There are two current plans in place. The OC Marathon is working hard to move the event to the weekend of November 7th-8th. They plan to hold the KROC event on November 7th. KROC also has an on-site plan for May if schools are back in session. In this case, we will hold a “virtual” run event on campus for our final mile. Students will get their shirts and medals at the finish line on campus. No matter which option happens our KROC students will be able to run and be celebrated!

 

Please stay safe and have a HAWKtastic evening!

 

Respectfully,
