Cougar News Update

August 24th- 28th, 2020

History in the making!

Congratulations Cougars on a history making First Week of School in Remote Learning! You made this week as success with your daily attendance, engagement, work completion, and commitment to use patience, problem solving, and communication when we encountered minor glitches. THANK YOU! Continue to reach out, ask questions, and refer to our Campbell ES Universal Remote Learning Guide and Campbell Website for support.

It is especially important in this second week of school that EVERY student shows up in their online classes or submits packet work every day. This week our district will count to see who is showing up and make adjustments based on this. If you know any family that has not engaged or enrolled their child, as a Cougar Community it is time to get them connected.

Our teachers are preparing to administer very important assessments to students this week. Students should take these assessments seriously, do their best, and show us what they know. This will help teachers provide the instruction needed for the remainder of the year.

Please review the resources in this newsletter for more information.

FCS - Discipline Code of Conduct

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,


We very much look forward to the start of a new school year! As we prepare for our students returning to a Universal Remote Learning environment, we strongly encourage students and families review the 2020-2021 FCS STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT HANDBOOK as there are several changes. It is important to know that behavioral expectations for students are still in place and apply in a Universal Remote Learning environment. Potential rule infractions in a virtual learning environment include, but are not limited to, harassment, bullying, cyber bullying, technology offenses, disruption and insubordination. Please note that code of conduct rule violations can also occur in the community or when using social media inappropriately. It is important that the school is notified of any student behaviors that negatively impact the school or virtual learning environment.


Furthermore, incidents of harassment, racial slurs, bigotry, derogatory comments, physical harassment, ethnically offensive behaviors or any threats of harm to others will not be tolerated and will be taken very seriously. Depending on the nature and severity of the offense, the District’s response may include disciplinary consequences up to and including long term suspension/expulsion from school.


Please note any behavior that violates the FCS STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT HANDBOOK will be addressed through our district’s discipline process. Below are some potential discipline responses that will be utilized in the Universal Remote Learning environment include, but are not limited to, the following:


Parent Conference , Suspension from synchronous learning

Restorative Practice , Conference Loss of Privileges

Virtual Drug Education Program, Impact Less on or project

Suspension of club/extra-curricular activities, Loss of Graduation Ceremony/Prom

Suspension upon return to school, Long-term suspension/Expulsion


Please know that we are committed to ensuring that all our students feel safe and ready to learn and will be providing students guidance, resources and support. Thank you for your partnership in teaching our students behavioral expectations and standards of conduct while in a Virtual Learning Environment.


Please continue to be safe and as always, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or support.
