As we shared with you last Fall, legislation mandating a start time no earlier than 8:30 a.m. for all high schools in California goes into full effect in the upcoming 2022-23 school year. A new bell schedule for all five FUHSD campuses that is in compliance with this new State law has now been finalized. You can view the new bell schedule below.
In creating this schedule, we spent several months gathering input from parents via our PTSAs, students via a brief survey and staff. We incorporated the feedback we received into the schedule in several key areas, including the number of tutorials per week and ensuring that the amount of time students would miss for after school activities and athletics was minimized to the greatest extent possible. Students will continue to have access to free brunch and lunch in the 2022-23 school year.
We will continue to work alongside our feeder districts and city partners to ensure that impacts to traffic during school start and end times are mitigated to the greatest extent possible, and that we ensure a smooth start to school in August.
We hope that by providing as much advance notice of this change as possible, you and your family will have ample time to prepare ahead of the planned bell schedule change.
