Spring Is Here!

The spring we have been awaiting for the past two years is here. Last year at this time, we were barely welcoming a fraction our students back on campus with others still online at home. The pandemic was still raging and tensions were high. What progress we've made as a community in one year. Now masks are optional indoors and out. Physical distancing is a suggestion, not a requirement, and we can have events on campus again!


Our first small gathering, a dedication ceremony for our new school mural, will be next week on the 13th at 9:30AM. Families are welcome to attend. More info is below.


Then, on Thursday, April 28th we're hosting our first Open House in two years! The fun will start at 5:00PM. Families will have the opportunity to have coffee with the Principal, visit classroom showcases, and meet with community partners. More info is to be announced in coming weeks.


Spring pictures are this upcoming Monday, April 11th, as well! Our 5th graders will have their promotion pictures taken. Speaking of which, stay tuned for updates about our 5th grade promotion ceremony to take place on campus. Date/time to be announced soon!

FREE COVID TESTING SITE - 7 DAYS A WEEK

San Diego Unified School District now has a new testing site for all students and staff. If your student is showing symptoms at home or at school, this new resource will provide a quick and easy way to get test results so they can return to school as soon as possible. Testing will now be available at the Education Center located at 4100 Normal Street, 92103. It's only FIVE MILES away from Fletcher!


The site is open from 7:00AM - 7:00PM MONDAY through FRIDAY and 8:00AM - 5:00PM on Saturday and Sunday. No appointments necessary! Prior to testing, if your student isn't already registered to receive weekly testing on site, families will need to register for a Primary Health Portal account. https://my.primary.health/l/sdusd_testing.
