First Day of School - Special Sunday Edition

Here We Go!

It's the day before the BEST DAY OF THE YEAR, the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! Welcome back Falcons! Tomorrow is truly going to be something to celebrate. It is the culmination of months of hard work, preparation, and dedication by the Fletcher Elementary School and San Diego Unified staff. Although we are still in the midst of the COVID pandemic, the last 18 months have taught us so much about what's truly important, necessary, and required for providing a safe learning environment for our students on campus. Tomorrow won't be perfect, but it will be great. Please be patient if things don't run as smoothly right away, and let us know how we can do better. Thank you so much for entrusting us with the education of your student. We look forward to seeing all of our families tomorrow morning!

What to Bring on Day One

Please see the list of recommended supplies to bring on the first day of school. Any supplies required for learning will be provided by the school if needed. Lunch is also free for all students and no sign-up is required.

  • Backpack
  • Refillable Water Bottle (drinking fountains are turned off)
  • SDUSD Issued Chromebook
  • Mask
  • Hand sanitizer

That's it! If your student is new or did not receive a Chromebook last year, please let your teacher know and we will work quickly to check one out to your student this week. Fabric or surgical masks can also be provided to your student if they do not have one or forgot.

Lunchtime Sports Leagues

This year, our PE Teacher, Mr. Sherman will be organizing intramural sports during lunchtime recess for our 1st-5th graders. The 1st/2nd graders and 3rd-5th graders have separate lunch recess times, so the teams will be grouped with students of similar age ranges. The first games will start after the second week of school. Stay tuned for more updates!
