Fieldbrook School Community,

Last night, the School Board unanimously voted in favor of my request to close school through April 10, 2020. We will update you on our closure status should it be extended beyond that date. At this time, the soonest school would reopen is April 20, 2020 immediately following the scheduled Spring Break. The school website remains the best source of information. www.fbk8.org

As a school, we continue to focus on 3 main priorities: community connection, educational resources and support, and food services.

Community Connection

Each of our teachers has set up a daily digital Zoom meeting to facilitate connections between students and our staff while they are out of the classroom. We encourage students and their families to attend at least a portion of their classroom’s daily 2-hour video chat. Please refer to classroom webpages for specific times and visit the Zoom Information page on our website for instructions on accessing this technology. Teachers and staff are available through email and by calling the school at 839-3201. Continue to join us on Instagram (@fieldbrookschool) and Facebook (@fieldbrookschool).

Educational Resources and Support

Visit the school website www.fbk8.org and click on “CLASSROOMS” to access each teacher’s resource page. The resource page includes digital copies of activity packets and recommendations for enrichment activities and websites. All packets are in the office, please call ahead to schedule a pickup time. If you choose to come onto campus, please respect social distancing norms and avoid lingering on campus. We also ask that students remain in vehicles and that adults pick up the packets in the office. If another time/day is more convenient for you to pick up materials, please call the office.

Food Services

Lunches are available for pickup M-F from 11am -12pm at the school. Any person under the age of 18 may pick up a grab-and-go lunch at the school. Lunches must be taken off campus to eat. If making the drive to Fieldbrook causes a burden, many districts throughout the Northern Humboldt area provide the same service. Any child can pick up lunch from any location.

We are all adjusting day-by-day as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to shape our daily lives. As the state provides more guidance to schools, we will do our best to make adjustments that have the least impact on your daily lives. We will continue to bring you updated information as it becomes available. We are all in this together so we appreciate your continued support and patience.

 

Take Care,

Justin Wallace

Superintendent

 

 

Please Remember:

  • Parents and guardians are  encouraged to speak to students to reinforce proper hand washing and make sure they are washing their hands often.
  • If your student is sick, please keep them at home. Students should remain at home until a fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
  • Fieldbrook Elementary School District will keep students/families informed of any developments through our notification systems and this website.

Fieldbrook School Community,

I hope this message finds you and your family well. The start of this week has been a busy one at the school and I want to acknowledge the staff’s hard work and perseverance during this time. I also want to thank all of the families and community members who are unselfishly making sacrifices to see that all of our children are being cared for. We at the school miss the students and look forward to reconnecting with them. 

Our current closure lasts through March 27. We will update you on our closure status should it be extended beyond that date. The school website remains the best source of information. www.fbk8.org
