MAY 2019 - HIGHLIGHTED ITEMS

Student drop off and pick up

Recently, surrounding small businesses and housing complexes have brought their concerns to AHS admin about parents dropping off and picking up their AHS students in their business and housing parking lots. We know that pick up and drop off at our school and other FUSD schools is challenging, but students should not be meeting their rides in these locations.


Here are a few suggestions for drop off and pick up at AHS:

  • Staggering drop off and pick up times to avoid peak traffic in our parking lot.
  • Dropping off and picking up at the Los Cerritos Community Center parking lot. There is a trail from the Community Center to our campus (by our track).
  • Families can pick up and drop off several blocks from campus in permitted areas to avoid traffic congestion. The Brookvale shopping center has a very large parking lot and is only a short walk (along a sidewalk) to AHS.


Bullying Resource

Our school district's Educational Equity Coordinator has created a bullying resource sheet for all FUSD students. Here is the LINK.

SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT CARDS (SARCs)

Federal and state laws require school districts to make accountability reports available to the public online. Accountability report information is based on data and information from the previous year. Dates will run one year behind.


We are pleased to inform you that our district's School Accountability Report Cards (SARCs) are available in English, Spanish, and/or Chinese, as required. You may view the SARCs on the Fremont Unified School District web site at www.fremont.k12.ca.us under Resources & Contacts/School Reports, or by visiting your school office. To answer any questions regarding the SARCs, there are designated personnel available at each school site.
