School Closure starting Monday 3/16/20

Dear Fuente Nueva Families, 

Following guidance from various sources, including from the Humboldt County Office of Education, we have decided to close Fuente Nueva campus starting Monday 3/16 for two school weeks.

The closure is an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. There are still no known cases in Humboldt, but it has become clear, measures such as school closures are needed to promote the health of all.  If it becomes clear that we must remain closed longer to help with this effort we will take necessary steps to participate fully in preventative measures.

At this time we are working to meet with the various school leadership teams to provide clear guidance to offer services during the closure. We will communicate with you as decisions are made and services are made ready. We are working towards offering both child care options and daily meals. 

Optional independent study packets are available for all students. Please plan on coming to pick up your child’s learning packet. We will be open starting at 8:15am and will work towards a delivery service that limits contact. Thank you to the parents who have already responded that they will pick up their packet.

If you need assistance receiving your packet, please let us know, we will find a way to help you connect with this learning opportunity for your student(s).

Parent teacher conferences are still available via phone for all families. Please be sure you work with your teacher to ensure you have the appropriate time scheduled to meet together. 

We are working towards getting more resources to families for learning opportunities including online distance learning. We will work to connect all families to access internet services and devices for online learning opportunities. 

Thank you for your continued support and understanding during these unprecedented times. I hope that we can be a resource to families so please do not hesitate to communicate your needs.

With gratitude and appreciation for your support and understanding,
