Dear Foster Families,
I hope this letter finds you and your family well. It has been a challenging year or so and we are excited to welcome back our Foster Falcons. We have amazing families and we are here to support each other. I would like to inform you that the first day back to campus instruction for students is August 12, 2021. We will notify you of the most current DPH guidelines prior to the start of the school year.
Baldwin Park Unified will hold on-campus instruction and offer a DLAB (Digital Learning and Beyond) independent study option as well. Please take a look at our District website for information on the DLAB option.
Foster staff is dedicated to each student and strives to provide a strong academic environment that will ensure academic growth for all students. Our team will focus on supporting students in academic areas of needed improvement.
Textbooks will be issued to each student during the first weeks of school. Chromebooks will be issued to students upon receipt of the Student Acceptable Use Agreement. As a reminder, all items issued to students need to be treated with care and kept clean. This is a great way to demonstrate responsibility, a core value, and expectation at Foster.
We will be sending home the following forms, which need to be completed and return as soon as possible:
-Foster Student Handbook
-Family Income Survey- we need all families to complete for our school funding
-Student-Parent Device Agreement- please read with your child and have them initial as well
-Student Acceptable Use Agreement- read carefully and select the one for your grade level TK - 3 or 4 - 12
-Annual Parent Notification to Parents and Guardians- please fill out the Acknowledgement of Receipt and
Students can bring them to school when they have completed all forms, and office staff will review them. A device will then be issued to your child.
For our returning families all enrollment packets were collected last year. Please ensure you have completed and turned in your packet to our office staff. We cannot complete enrollment until your packets are complete and returned. The enrollment packets will be reviewed and if follow-up is needed, you will receive a phone call from our office staff.
Foster continues to be a “Uniform School”. All students will be expected to be in full uniform beginning the first day of school. We offer many options with the use of school and college shirts as well.
Communication between the school and home must be consistent and ongoing. We will continue to keep our families informed through our website, phone messages, Instagram, and other correspondences. Please be sure to keep the school updated with any concerns you have regarding your child’s academics and/or social-emotional needs(ren). In addition, keep us updated regarding change of address, phone number, or work information so we can keep the lines of communication open.
Our office is open from 7:30-4:00. Please call and let us know if we can help you in any manner. We look forward to seeing you Thursday, August 12th. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school office at (626) 962-8111.
