Foothill MS Community Memo

March 17, 2021

Information is continually being updated daily but as of right now I will share what we know.

Dr. Clark shared at some point parents and guardians will be able to tour campuses to check on the safety protocols we have put in place. As we have teachers and staff transitioning back to classrooms the campus is unavailable during the school day and then sanitation/disinfecting begins when staff leaves for the day. Therefore I have set up three Zoom Virtual Tours that you can join me, on a walkabout and ask questions. I will record this as well so everyone will have the opportunity to see our campus. Please see the Zoom links below--tours will be this Friday, March 19 at 8 am, followed by next Monday, March 22 at both 3 and 4 pm.

There are a number of schedules pending the special Board meeting this Friday. All of which I will publish as soon as possible. One calendar point to remember is Friday, April 2nd is a School Holiday.

This is the last week for our Book eFair and also our Spirit Wear sale.

Check out the videos by the District CBO on all things financial.

Have a wonderful evening.

Sincerely appreciative to serve the Foothill Community.
