Dear FUSD Community,

Peaceful Protest
The messages of Pride Month comes at an appropriate time as we struggle with the events of the past ten days. I too was shocked and saddened by the tragic and needless death of George Floyd and understand the outrage being felt throughout the country. I ask our community to come together in support of African-American students and families and to do so respectfully and peacefully. This is a time to come together - not to divide. 
Taking a stand against the actions we have witnessed is necessary, but in honor of those who have passed, I ask all who are demonstrating to drop your weapons, drop your verbal assaults and demonstrate what we are known for in Fremont - coming together in peace and working together to make the changes we need to make in order to move forward. 
As a District, we want to do our part to support our community during this difficult time. In the coming weeks, we will be working to create a platform to bring our school communities together to discuss how these issues are impacting our community and how they can be addressed. I will send details as soon as possible. In the meantime, members of our high school counseling staff have put together some resources for families to assist in speaking with children about racism and violence:

I conclude with a reminder that COVID-19 is still a threat to our community. If you attend a protest, please wear a mask and practice social distancing. 

Thank You FUSD Retirees
The end of every school year comes with a bittersweet task of saying goodbye to another group of dedicated teachers and staff. We are happy to see them embark on a well-deserved retirement, but sad to lose their experience, wisdom and in many cases, their presence as fixtures of their schools and communities. This year is no exception as we wish our retirees and their over 2,100 years of combined experience the very best in the next great chapter of their lives. Please take a moment to watch this tribute video and reach out to any names that have made an impact on your family.  
Pride Month
In celebration of Pride Month 2020, we were happy to raise the Rainbow Flag in front of the District Office this week. Last September, the FUSD Board of Education approved the purchase of flags to fly at every school through the month of June. As educators and members of a diverse community such as Fremont, we are proud to celebrate this month’s message of equality and inclusion and are committed to uphold these values each and every month.
FUSD Task Force
The Task Force is currently working on the opening of the 2020-21 school year and will review all aspects of school business. A survey will soon be sent to our school community to provide input on the various scenarios of how the school year will look like. As details are finalized, we will announce when the survey will be available.
I look forward to celebrating the Class of 2020 and the end of the school year with you next week! 

Raúl M. Zamora, Ed.D.
Acting Superintendent
