Fullerton Weekly Update

Week of: 10-26-20

A Good Start!

This past week was exiting for the Fullerton community as we welcomed our in-person learners. On Monday, some of our new Lions, our in-person Kindergartners transitioned successfully to their new school and on Thursday we returned our students in grades 1 - 5. It was also encouraging to see our remote learners via Zoom. Many thanks to the Fulerton staff for the time and effort they have put forth to implement these two learning models and the subsequent learning schedule. We look forward to anohter successful week under these learning models.
