Office of the Superintendent
The beginning of a new school year is always awash with possibility, expectation, and excitement. The thrill of seeing old friends, meeting new people, learning new things, and setting goals is something that most students can relate to as they move from grade to grade. However, they are not the only ones experiencing anticipation as we begin the 2017-18 school year...so is their superintendent!
Though the summer allowed me some time to get settled into my new role in the District, I was counting down the days to when the students and staff would return. I am looking forward to visiting classrooms, meeting families, listening to our community, and building even stronger relationships with our 3,000 staff members at Fremont Unified.
The first day of school is Wednesday, August 30th. Welcome back to all our returning students and families and thank you for your continued support. To those of you new to our district, thank you so much for choosing F-U-S-D and we look forward to getting to know you and working to provide the best educational opportunity for your student.
As with every new school year, there will be adjustments needed to be made involving schedules, class assignments, traffic patterns and ensuring all necessary information is on file. I ask for your patience over the next few weeks. As a growing district, there are many challenges to placing thirty-five thousand students safely and in a manner most convenient to families. Our student services department is dedicated to working with you to answer any questions you may have.
On behalf of everyone at Fremont Unified, welcome back and we look forward to another great school year.
Kim Wallace, Ed.D
Fremont Unified School District
