Hello Pates,

Our phase-in process for student return has begun!  It’s wonderful to have our Pates coming back onto campus.  The phasing-in process is set-up to be slow to allow for a smooth transition.  If you selected Hybrid In-Person with the November 3rd preference, you should have received information about your child’s schedule from your classroom teacher.  If you did not complete and submit the October parent survey, your child(ren) will remain on CUSD Connect until you call the office to indicate your preference. Should there be a change from CUSD Connect to Hybrid In-Person, you will need to complete the CUSD Parent Acknowledgement Agreement form that would have followed in the Parent Survey had the Hybrid In-Person selection was made online.  The office staff can assist you with the acknowledgment form.

The new FW Hybrid Bell Schedule has been published on our school website and school Facebook page. During our initial phase-in this past week, we have learned the screening process and arrival time for the afternoon session can begin at 12:15pm instead of noontime, which is now accurately adjusted on our published bell schedule.  Also, your child’s teacher will provide you with the details on when the transition to this bell schedule will occur.  

As more students return onto campus, the additional entry points with screening and temperature check stations will be opened the week of November 16th.  Please refer to the published map of these locations on our school website.  Each entry point is identified (i.e. student’s last name) to limit congestion at each screening and temperature check station.  Students will be exiting campus at the same location of the entry points on the map.  If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at (559) 327-6600.

Looking forward to having more of our Pates back at the Fort!
