FREMONT – Fremont Public Schools released information today regarding early dismissal days, a community survey that closes tonight, updated winter sports protocols, and current COVID-19 numbers within FPS.
On January 11, the Board of Education approved several early dismissal Fridays in this second semester. The dates scheduled for early dismissal are January 29, February 12, February 26, March 5, and March 26. Dismissal times will be FHS 1:00 pm, ELEM 1:10 pm, JCAC 1:15 pm, FMS 1:25 pm. Lunch will be served and transportation will be provided to those students who typically use FPS transportation. Students that utilize the afterschool programs will attend their normal programming following the early dismissal. Preschool programming will continue as previously scheduled.
Fremont Public Schools invites the community to participate in a survey regarding the facilities of the district. Fremont Public Schools has an opportunity, over the next several years, to upgrade and/or rebuild our aging facilities. This opportunity is being presented based on bonds that are maturing, a favorable bond market, and a favorable construction market.
In order to move forward, a successful bond election is required. The purpose of this survey is to gather input from the community to begin to prioritize the district’s needs. The size, scope, and structure of a bond issue will be determined based on these prioritized needs. The survey can be completed at http://bit.ly/FPSFacilitySurvey. The survey will close today at 11:59 pm.
Fremont Public Schools updated winter activity protocols this week.
- Six designated fans per participant are allowed to attend (this includes cheer and dance team members performing at the event) at the following events: basketball games and wrestling duals.
- Four designated fans per participant are allowed to attend swimming duals and bowling duals.
