FREMONT – Fremont Public Schools is announcing their Continuation of Learning Plan, to be implemented during the current, indefinite closure of schools in the city.
The Continuation of Learning Plan will begin on Monday, March 23, 2020.
“The FPS Continued Learning Plan provides the opportunity for students to keep their skills sharp while away from school, as well as engage families in the learning activities.

We are hopeful that the familiarity of academic resources will provide some consistency for our students during this uncertain time,” stated Kate Heineman, Executive Director for Teaching and Learning for FPS.

Fremont High School Seniors
Fremont Public Schools administrators want to assure seniors and their families that the district is “putting our efforts into doing everything we can for the Class of 2020.” Fremont Public Schools is currently reviewing credits earned, graduation requirements and determining next steps for helping students achieve their diploma. More information will be coming soon.
At this time all special activities are TBD, and will be decided based on guidance from local, state, and federal agencies. As information is received, decisions will be made and communicated to all.
“Our plans will continue to develop and evolve over the next several weeks as long as the school closure continues. First and foremost, our students and families must take care of themselves and their loved ones. The extended break is an opportunity to continue to learn in a different environment,” stated Mark Shepard, Superintendent of Schools.
