Principal's Message

We continue to APPRECIATE your patience through Distance Learning. As we work through MAP testing, MORE patience may be needed. Please know that the MAP testing has ONLY ONE purpose right now- that is to get baseline data on where your child is academically in Reading and Math.


Some reminders for those that have not taken it yet--Please do not assist your child with answering the test questions. It is imperative that the teachers receive accurate information in order to link them to targeted interventions to meet their specific needs.


Please note that if your child has problems logging on, and it takes awhile ...it is OK. All students will have the opportunity to complete the test. It is NOT a timed test.

Resources to stop hate and talk about racism

Sometimes, it is hard to make sense of violence and hatred, especially hatred and violence caused by racism-which is it is so important to continue listening and talking with our children about what they can do to make the world a more just and better place.


Each week we hope to share resources (books, articles, etc.) to stand up to hatred. Resources that educate, empower, and uplift. We hope you find them helpful and appreciate you sharing any resources that are particularly powerful for you or your family.

I need a device, how will I get one for my child?

If you need a device for your child (don't have a current one), please email our library tech, Maily Wester, at MailyW@fsusd.org


She will arrange a time and date for pick-up. The pick-up will include information on how to navigate turning on and accessing the Chromebook. That guide can also be found here:


Chromebook Guide

My device is broken/not working, how do i get it fixed?

If your device stops working, please fill this form out: Chromebook Device Repair. Once we see the completed form, we will contact you to arrange a time to come to the site to have the book replaced or repaired. Please always bring the charger when you bring the Chromebook.


Please email me at SteveTr@fsusd.org if you need wireless/hotspot assistance. We don't have them in our possession yet but should soon. We are filling them as quickly as possible.

I am having technology issues during a meet/online learning (not broken device), what do I do?

Step One: Deep Breath, you are not alone

Step Two: Contact the classroom teacher, if possible

Step Three: If they can't solve it or don't respond during the school day, email me at SteveTr@fsusd.org

Step Four: See below


Also, our District librarians are providing tech support. Parents can request technology support Monday through Friday from 8:00-3:00 by emailing our District Librarian team at askalibrarian@fsusd.org .

School Lunches

FSUSD is accepting meal applications for the 20-21 school year. If you would like to apply for free/reduced school meals please complete this online application at https://www.myschoolapps.com/ or navigate to the district webpage to read more information and/or download and print a paper copy.


New Process for School Meals in Phase 1 - Distance Learning

Once per week students can receive a box of food that will contain five breakfasts and five lunches. The box will be free of charge for any students that qualify for free or reduced meals. Students that do not qualify for free or reduced meals can pay $15 for the weekly box. Starting on Wednesday August 19th, any student can pick up a box on any following day from any one of the following locations from 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM:


Tuesdays - Grange Middle School

Wednesdays - Armijo High School

Thursdays - Green Valley Middle School

Fridays - Crystal Middle School


Student ID numbers will be required to receive a box and students can only receive one box per week. Students can not receive boxes from more than one location in the same week.

News from our PTA

Help the kiddos show off their CHE pride in spiritwear, every Friday. Don't have spiritwear or need new apparel? We can help! Click here and scroll to the bottom of that page for the spiritwear section. To place your order online you will need to create a login, if you do not already have one. Any purchases made by Sept. 24th, will be available for a drive-thru pick-up at the school on Sept. 25th. The time is yet to be determined. Spiritwear is limited, so login and make your purchase today! **due to the current COVID pandemic, returns or exchanges cannot be accommodated.**


We are also having a bi-monthly spiritwear giveaway starting Friday, Oct. 2nd. Share photos of your student(s) in their spiritwear on Fridays in our Facebook spiritwear folder and they'll be entered into the drawing. We'll randomly draw a winner on the last Friday, every other month, for fun prizes.

Front Office Appointments

If you need to stop by our main office, please call ahead to make an appointment at 707-864-1905 or email our secretary SandiF@fsusd.org. Please bring your mask and all paperwork needed for registration (birth certificate, shot record, 2- proof of residency, and other school records that you may have). Thank you for your patience as we are getting all of our students into classes as fast as we can!


If you are simply wanting to turn in updated shot records, please email them to our nurse MarisaR@fsusd.org Thank you!

Cordelia Hills/Phases

FSUSD has created a Phased Plan for those who will remain enrolled at CHE for the 2020-2021 school year. Below is a short description of each phase:


Phase 5: Full in-person school under regular/Pre-COVID operating standards.

Phase 4: Full in-person school with safety protocols in place (5 days a week)

Phase 3: No more than 50% of students attending school at any given time (two days a week)

Phase 2: No more than 25% of students attending school at any given time (one day a week)

Phase 1: 100% of students engaged in distance learning. Few/No students on campus.


Currently, FSUSD is planning for Phase 1. That decision will be reviewed in October.
