Dear Parkmont Community,
 
   As our school year nears its end, I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome that you have given to Johanna and me.  It has truly been a wonderful year working with you and all of your amazing children.  The students here at Parkmont inspire and motivate me.  This is why I went into education and it has been a privilege to be a part of helping your children grow and progress in their quest to reach their potential.  Our teachers and support staff are dedicated, nurturing professionals and they have really done an outstanding job in implementing the New California Standards and in helping their students to reach them.  I look forward to next year as we move forward together.  
 
   On another note, please take a moment to click on the following link http://goo.gl/forms/CGMtN6X7A6 in order to vote for the three community members that will sit on next year's School Site Council.  Taranjit Singh Lamba, Erik Pearson, and Malini Kumar have graciously submitted their names for consideration for the three available spots on the council for next year.  There is also a spot to write in another candidate if you desire to do so.  Once again, the link to vote is: http://goo.gl/forms/CGMtN6X7A6
 
   Thanks again, and, as always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
 
Principal, Kade Petersen

PARKING LOT "ETIQUETTE"

 

** If you drive your child to school, there are some facts you need to know:
1. REMAIN CALM!  

2. Please be aware of those around you.  We are ALWAYS concerned about student safety and driving; dropping your student in the wrong place could result in injury. 

3. Please remember that our students are not always careful. Therefore, your attention is of critical importance. 

4. If you choose to park across the street, please do NOT have your child cross the street, take a few extra minutes to walk to the cross walk. 
 
5. We know the line to get into our parking lots can be long, but is important NOT to cross onto the oncoming traffic side of the street. 

6. When pulling into the parking lot loops, please pull as far as you can BEFORE stopping to drop or pick up your child. 

7. Please do not park in any No Parking Zones, staff parking lots, numbered parking spots (teachers’ spots), or leave your car unattended in the parking loops. 

8.  The left lane is NOT for stopping.  This is intended for driving ONLY.

9. If you park in a visitor spot, please do NOT send or call for your child across the parking lot.  Parents/students must use the sidewalk to and from your car. 

10. Please be respectful of our neighbors and do not block their driveways.

11. If you notice any dangerous driving on Parkside Drive, please do not hesitate to call the Fremont Police Department (510) 790-6800 or file an online traffic complaint:  http://www.fremontpolice.org/forms.aspx?FID=62 
 

Measles

Hello Parkmont Families
With the Alameda County Public Health Department’s (ACPHD) recent report of five confirmed cases of measles within the county so far in 2015, the Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) is providing families with information regarding the illness.
 
FUSD reminds families there are currently no known cases of measles within the District. The ACPHD is investigating and will notify the District immediately with any reports of confirmed cases or suspected exposures.
 
Measles, also called rubeola, is a highly-contagious illness caused by a virus that causes fever, cough, runny nose and watery eyes, as well as a rash. More serious cases of measles can cause diarrhea, middle ear infection, pneumonia, or encephalitis (brain infection). Measles is spread person-to-person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or shares food/drink. If your child demonstrates any of the above symptoms, please do not send child to school and contact your physician immediately.
 
Immunization is the best protection against measles. There are typically two doses given: one at 12-15 months, and a second time as soon as 28 days later. Many children receive their second dose before kindergarten. FUSD, as well as all California public schools, requires both doses be administered prior to enrollment.
 
Please contact FUSD Student Support Services at 510-659-2534 with questions or for more information.
