Tdap for students Entering 7th grade

All students entering the 7th grade in the 2017/2018 school year must receive a Tdap (Pertussis/ Whooping Cough) booster shot before entering school in August 2017. 

Proof of the vaccine must include:  Student’s name, date of birth, vaccine name, date vaccine administered and name of the clinic, office, or doctor administering the vaccine.

We highly encourage you to have your student receive the TDAP vaccine now and to bring proof to your student’s current school office as soon as possible.  This will prevent delaying registration and selection of courses for 7th grade.

School Accountability Report Card (SARC) Notice

Each year in February, the SARCs are published on our web site. The public can find them at FUSD/Resources & Contacts/School Reports here. Please put a notice about the availability of the SARCs in your next newsletter. The required text is available in English, Spanish, and Chinese.​

Change of Address/Residency:

Please be reminded that it is the responsibility of parents under Board Policy 5111 to notify the school office within five (5) days if they move in or out of the attendance area.  Any move within the attendance area still requires four (4) new proofs of residency to verify the new address.  Failure to do so will result in revocation of the student’s placement at the school.

Remember to read the Announcements and Headlines on the web page too.  Additional information is posted there as it comes up on a day to day basis.
