Important message regarding scheduling conflict between FUHSD College Fair and Rosh Hashanah

Dear FUHSD parents and families, 

 

As you may know, the 2017 FUHSD College Fair is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 21 at Fremont High School. While the District is excited to be able to continue to provide this valuable informational event to our students and parents, we are aware of the challenge that the date poses for some of our families as it falls on Rosh Hashanah. Unfortunately, FUHSD was assigned this date by the consortium of colleges that schedules college fairs throughout the state. The District did immediately request another date, however with hundreds of events being scheduled each year, we were unable to secure an alternative date and time. The only other option available was for a date in November, which would have been far too late to support our families in getting the critical information they need. 

 

Below we have provided information on several local and online college fairs which are open to the general public and which may be of interest to you and your student(s):

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the conflict of the College Fair and Rosh Hashanah and we will continue to try and minimize scheduling conflicts of this nature in the future.

Estimados padres y familias de FUHSD,

 

Como ya sabrán, la Feria Universitaria 2017 FUHSD está programada para el Jueves, 21 de Septiembre en la Fremont High School.  Mientras que el Distrito se complace en ser capaz de seguir ofreciendo este valioso evento informativo a nuestros estudiantes y padres, somos conscientes del reto que plantea la fecha para algunas de nuestras familias, ya que cae en Rosh Hashaná.  Desafortunadamente, FUHSD fue asignado esta fecha por el consorcio de colegios que programa ferias de la universidad en todo el estado.  El Distrito solicitó inmediatamente otra fecha, sin embargo, con cientos de eventos programados cada año, no pudimos obtener una fecha y hora alternativas. La única opción disponible era para una fecha en Noviembre, que habría sido demasiado tarde para apoyar a nuestras familias en obtener la información crítica que necesitan.

 

A continuación, hemos proporcionado información sobre varias ferias universitarias locales y en línea que están abiertas al público en general y que pueden ser de interés para usted y su (s) estudiante (s):
