*School Closed March 17-May 1**

All schools in the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District will be closed to students through Friday, April 17th, 2020, which is the final day of Spring Break. The first day back to school for students will be Monday, May 4th, 2020. This is subject to change.

Distance Learning

Starting Monday, March 30th, all teachers will be providing instruction to students through Google Classroom. Teachers will send out a schedule with Daily Instruction Times, Google Meet Times and Office Hours. Students will participate in Art and PE too.


Notes for 3/30-4/9:


-All classes engaged in distance learning. Basic expectations are outlined below:


1. All students are engaging with their teachers (general education and/or special education staff) through google classroom.

2. Staff is offering instruction, office hours, and meet-ups each day to engage/teach students in a distance format. Teachers will provide students/families with a schedule for their class

3. We ask that you, as much as possible, give your child a quiet, distraction free space during any video conferencing.

4. Work with your child's teacher to address any issues that arise (tech, availability, content, etc.). They have a process to submit to me any issues that come up during this period.

5. We realize that many of you are still working and that you may not be able to always engage with learning for your child. We aim to be patient and flexible and ask that you do the same.



Notes for 4/20-5/1:

1. Expectations are the same but staff will focus on new material and more rigorous learning objectives.

2. You will receive an update from the District on any possible extended closures beyond 5/1.

3. You will receive a re-entry plan outlining how we will work with the school for the remainder of the year (inside or outside of the school)


There will be no staff available in person or on-site just yet. We are unable to get materials to you in this period. Please let your teacher know if you need a replacement chromebook or have other needs during this period. They will communicate with me.

Parent Guide to Google Classroom

From March 30th- April 9th and April 20-May 1, 100 % of teachers will be delivering distance learning. Most of the assignments will be in Google classroom so please become familiar with this platform. Parents can email me or Karen Latora at karenLa@fsusd.org if they need student information to join google classroom.

Also, if you are in need of a device (no home or school device available), please email your teacher or me at stevetr@fsusd.org We have added redundancies into our data collection and so teachers are asking, the District will be asking, and I am asking for this information.

Message from District:


At this time, we will still be feeding students starting tomorrow, March 17th, 2020. However, because of the Governor’s recommendation that people who are more vulnerable to COVID-19 should isolate themselves at home, we are reducing the hours and locations of feeding to keep our staff safe. Children will be able to receive food from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM each weekday during closures from only the following schools:


  • Fairview Elementary - 830 First Street, Fairfield

  • Grange Middle - 1975 Blossom Ave, Fairfield

  • Suisun Elementary - 725 Golden Eye Way, Suisun City
