Principal's Message

Harvey Green Community,

Thank you to all of the families who attended our virtual Back to School Night. The teachers were able to share lots of important information with families. If you were unable to attend, please reach out to your child's teacher for information.

The students have been doing such an amazing job of following the rules. I would also like to thank the parents for following our new safety guidelines. Please remember if your child forgets something to bring it to the office, for no reason should a parent go to a classroom door. Also, parents are required to wear a mask when on campus, even if it is on the sidewalk.

If your student is sick with any of the listed symptoms on the flow chart please follow the directions listed on number 1. Please email our attendance clerk vluna@fusdk12.net or call 510-656-6438 to let us know if your child is ill.

During the week of September 13-17, we will have Starts with Hello Week. Our school counselor and teachers will lead students in activities where we will focus on getting to know each other and making Harvey Green a welcoming place for all.

Our book fair was a success! Thank you to all the families who purchased books and a huge thank you to Mr. Jun for all the time and excitement that you put in to our library!

I am looking for volunteers to serve on our School Site Council for the 2021-22 school year. Please see the information below.

Our first PTA meeting will be tonight at 7pm on Zoom. We hope you can attend this important meeting. We are also looking to have all families and staff join our PTA. Information on how to join can be found on the bottom of the newsletter.

Please feel free to call the office or reach out to us by email if we can assist your family in any way.


Ms. Johnson

Counselor's Corner

Welcome back Green Families!

My name is Danna Huang and I'm your school counselor. This is my 3rd year at Harvey Green and this year, I am so excited to announce I'm back full-time meaning I'll be supporting our students and families all 5 days of the week! We're all adjusting to this new norm and being back in school but I couldn't be happier to see the students again in person! To learn more about what school counseling is, please join me at our virtual Parent Info Night on September 21st. In the meantime, feel free to email me at dhuang1@fusdk12.net or call (510) 656-6438 ext. 41255 if I can support in any way. I look forward to getting to know and working with our Green families throughout the year!

Important- Items to Bring to School Daily

Please have your child bring an extra mask and a water bottle to school daily. While we have plenty of extra PPE, it is a good idea to have a back up in their backpack. Thank you to our PTA for helping us to purchase a water bottle refill station. Students may want to bring a hat to school, as we will be eating lunch outside daily.

Free Student Meals 2021-22

For this school year, lunch will be free to all students who wish to have a school lunch. Please be sure to remind your child to raise their hand when their teacher does lunch count daily. It is also important that your child knows if they want the meat or veggie option.
