Message from Dr. Mazzoni

We are preparing for the upcoming summer programs at Folsom. Folsom School will be open on Monday – Thursdays on the following weeks:

Week 1 – June 24th 28th (4 days)

Week 2 – July 1st – July 3rd (3 days)

Week 3 – July 8th – 11th (4 days)

Week 4 – July 15th – 18th (4 days)

Week 5 – July 22nd – 25th (4 days)

Week 6 – July 29th – August 1st (4 days)

Teachers will be notified in August on when classrooms will be open for the 2019-2020 SY set-up. Classroom set-up typically starts two weeks prior to the start of the school year between the hours of 8-4 pm.

Alliance summer camp will start on week 4 and run through week 6 from 8:45 until 12:45 pm. In addition, we will run the summer learning program the same weeks as the alliance camp from 1-4 pm. The focus of the summer learning camp is on English language arts, math, and social emotional learning. Please send me a letter of interest if you are interested in working the summer learning camp by March 29th.

Secondly, we will offer an extended school year program for specific special education students in the pre-k setting. The program will start on week 4 and run through week 6. We are hiring a teacher and aide for this program. Please send me a letter of interest if you are interested in working the extended school program by March 29th.

Lastly, please submit your CER program applications to Jen McConaghy by March 29th if you are planning to offer a CER program this summer.

As always, please contact me if you have any further questions.


Matthew Mazzoni, Ed.D.
