Principal's Message

Harvey Green Families,

Friday, March 3rd marked the end of the second trimester and we are now beginning the final trimester of the 2022-2023 school year. Thank you to all of the families who have proved residency for next year. If you have not, please do so immediately, or you will risk losing your child's spot at Harvey Green.

As Spring is coming soon, I have noticed that allergies have begun to pick up. If your child needs any medication at school please be sure to follow the correct procedures. Medication information can be found below. This is for the safety of all students.

In February we had the return of the Science Fair and I was amazed at all the wonderful projects that students submitted. I know each project took countless hours and dedication to complete. I am so proud of each student that participated. Please see below the list of students who placed at the Harvey Green Science Fair. Also, the City of Fremont will hold a special STEAM event on Wednesday, March 29th from 4-8pm at the Downtown Event Center. Daniel Z. and Samanyu S. will be displaying their project as they received first place for our fifth graders. A special thank you to Mrs. Liaquat who took charge of the science fair and encouraged all students to participate. I hope to see some families at the event.

Please be sure to check the lost and found rack for any of your child's lost jackets or other items. The rack is becoming very full and we will be donating it on March 15th.

As always, 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 Corner

Dear Harvey Green families,

I'm over this cold weather and so ready for spring! In March, our lesson topics are mindfulness, stress management, and healthy/safe choices. We could all use moments in our day to be present, pay attention to our thoughts, and notice our feelings. To teach our students mindful strategies is setting them up to take care of their feelings and thoughts; leading to better ways of coping and managing stress. GoNoodle has a great series on guided meditation for kids!

Next month, we will explore careers and I need your help! If you, a relative, or friend is interested in volunteering to be a presenter for Career Day, please fill out this Interest Form.

Lastly, FUSD elementary counselors are hosting another workshop! The upcoming one is on Monday, March 13th at 9:30am. Take a look at this flyer for more information and to register!

Kind regards,

Mrs. Ng

Covid Test Kits and Covid Testing

Harvey Green will no longer have Covid testing at the school site on Tuesdays. It is still available daily at the district office. At home Covid test kits will not be given out before Spring Break. If you need any test kits, we have them in the school office. Please stop by to pick them up.

Lost and Found

Please check for any lost items on our lost and found rack outside of the office. The cart is becoming full and we will be donating items on March 15th. It is helpful to write your child's name on their jackets, so we can return them when found.

Yearbooks on Sale

If you would like to preorder a yearbook, payment can be dropped off to the school office. Cost is $25. Please make checks payable to FUSD - Green.

New TK and K Enrollment

Is your child almost TK/Kindergarten age? 2023-2024 enrollment begins on December 23rd. If your child is born between 09/02/18 to 4/02/19, they are eligible for TK! If they are born between 09/02/17 to 09/01/18 they are eligible for Kindergarten. Please check here for information on how to sign up your child for TK or Kindergarten.

Lunch Time Reminder

We eat lunch outdoors daily unless it is raining. Please make sure you students have layered clothing as it can get cold. Also, it is important that your child comes to school with their lunch or gets lunch from the cafeteria. Lunches should only be dropped off in the office in emergency circumstances.

Free Breakfast and Lunch Daily

ALL Green students will have access to free meals here at school. Students will be asked every morning if they are going to get a school lunch so we can order the correct amount

of food. Please communicate with your child if you would like them to get a school meal and if they are choosing the meat or vegetarian option.

TK/K students are welcome to come through the lunch line and grab a lunch but there is no lunch supervision for TK/K students they will need to eat with a parent/guardian off campus.

Breakfast will be served daily in the MUR for any interested students at 8:05am. Parents/guardians are not allowed in the MUR. Students will be supervised while they eat and will be either released to recess when finished or if they are TK/K they will be walked to class.

For menus and more information please use this link.

Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality Education (CHPSE)- 4th & 5th Grade

The Fremont Unified School District Board of Education and our school faculty believe it is important for students to assume responsibility for their own health and well-being. They benefit from instruction that fosters the development of positive health behaviors and the prevention of negative unhealthy behaviors. FUSD’s Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality Education (CHPSE) curriculum focuses on information that is essential for students’ well-being. This course of study conforms strictly to the guidelines provided by the California State Education Code 51933 and the California Healthy Youth Act.

Lesson Dates:

4th Grade: May 16th- May 19th

5th Grade: March 27th- April 4th

State law allows you to remove your student from part or all of the Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality lessons. Students opting out of lessons will be provided an alternate curriculum under the supervision of a credentialed teacher. If you do not want your student to participate in all or part of the Comprehensive Health, Puberty, and Sexuality education program, you must provide, in writing (email or on paper), a note to your student’s teacher.

Links to the curriculum, opt-out information, and parent resources, can be found at: https://www.fremont.k12.ca.us/HealthResources.

English Language Proficiency for California (ELPAC)

Every Year, California students take several statewide tests. When combined with other measures such as grades, classwork, and teacher observations, these tests give families and teachers a more complete picture of their child’s learning. You can use the results to identify where your child is doing well and where they might need more support. Any English Learners at Leitch will take the ELPAC between February and May here at school.

Medication at School

If your child needs medication at school please use this link to get all necessary form. Health Forms

These forms will need to be completed and signed by the doctor so please try to get this completed before school starts.

FUSD COVID Safety Measures

There are many questions around COVID 19 and safety measures. Use this district link to find lots of helpful information. COVID Safety Measures


Per Board Policy any parent/guardian of a student enrolled in the District shall notify the District prior to or within five (5) days of any change in circumstance and/or a move which would affect their student’s residency (AR 5111.1).
