Back in Action

Week one is officially in the books. It wasn't perfect, but it was great. Words cannot describe the joy felt campus wide by our students and staff. The energy, enthusiasm, and gratitude for being able to return to quasi-normalcy permeated each classroom and communal space. We are incredibly proud of our students for showing responsibility with their masks, washing/sanitizing hands, and learning all of our other new safety routines so quickly. Next week, Fletcher Elementary will host Interim Superintendent, Dr. Lamont Jackson and Chief of Staff, Sofia Roditti for a tour of the school. This is a huge honor for our school and we know the students and staff will reflect the stellar reputation Fletcher has in San Diego Unified. Stay tuned next week for a recap of the visit.

“Any human anywhere will blossom in a hundred unexpected talents and capacities simply by being given the opportunity to do so.”

Highlights from the Week

Free Weekly COVID Testing on Campus

As you know, keeping our students safe, healthy and IN SCHOOL is our #1 priority. To ensure this, we need for ALL families to fill out the COVID-19 Testing forms. Thank you to all who have already filled out these forms. The deadline to submit the forms is September 10.

If you are opting out of COVID testing, we still need you to submit the testing form.

  • Click here if you’d like to see a video explaining the instructions.

  • Click here if you need instructions on how to set up a Parent Portal account.

If you prefer to fill out the forms on paper, please visit the school site. We will have staff in front of the school all week during drop off and pickup, to distribute the forms to you, and support you in filling them out.

Recommended Supplies for Each Day

Please see the list of recommended supplies to bring each day. 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. Please pack a snack for your student as these are not provided.

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

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!

Virtual Registration for RETURNING Students

Please complete the Virtual Registration for Returning Students as soon as possible. This will help us ensure you are receiving important information via email and phone. Click this link to complete the form:
