That you to Jerry Hansen (School Board Member) and his wife Gloria for providing lunch for the staff at both the Elementary and High School at the end of our school year. This is something the Hansen's have done for many years, and we are very appreciative.

Hello Ferndale Schools Family, As many of you are aware, Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health announced that they will be lifting the indoor masking mandate for schools effective at the end of the day on March 11th. On March 11 at 11:59 pm the statewide school indoor mask mandate will expire for students, regardless of vaccination status. Ferndale High and Ferndale Elementary will continue to follow all applicable federal, state and local mandates related to the pandemic. This means beginning Monday, March 14th, Ferndale High School and Ferndale Elementary School will no longer require students or staff to wear masks. Please take the time to discuss this change with your student(s). As always, we ask students and staff to be respectful and understanding of the preferences of others - whether it be to wear a mask or to not wear a mask. Our schools will continue to have masks available to any students, staff or visitors that want to continue to use them. Thank you, Beth Anderson, Superintendent Hola familia de las escuelas de Ferndale, Como muchos de ustedes saben, el gobernador Newsom y el Departamento de Salud Pública de California anunciaron que levantarán el mandato de uso de cubre bocas en interiores para las escuelas a partir del 11 de marzo. El 11 de marzo a las 11:59 p. m., el mandato de uso de cubre bocas para interiores en las escuelas de todo el estado vencerá para los estudiantes, independientemente del estado de vacunación. Ferndale High y Ferndale Elementary continuarán siguiendo todos los mandatos federales, estatales y locales aplicables relacionados con la pandemia. Esto significa que a partir del lunes 14 de marzo, Ferndale High School y Ferndale Elementary School ya no requerirán que los estudiantes o el personal usen cubre bocas. Tómese el tiempo para discutir este cambio con sus estudiante(s). Como siempre, les pedimos a los estudiantes y al personal que sean respetuosos y comprensivos con las preferencias de los demás, ya sea usar una máscara o no usarla. Nuestras escuelas seguirán teniendo cubre bocas disponibles para cualquier estudiante, personal o visitante que quiera seguir usándolas. Gracias, Beth Anderson, Superintendente

Mrs. Bigham was surprised this week to find her door decorated (by Mrs. Velazquez & Mrs. Hindley) with a Wishing Tree. For those of you that don't know, our very own Mrs. Bigham was the one (along with some help from students) that started the Ferndale Wishing Tree at Town Hall.

Good morning Ferndale Schools Family, As many of you know, the state and federal governments continue to place our schools and school personnel in an uncomfortable position of serving as regulatory enforcement agencies. Please know that it is not and has never been our intention to interfere with the personal values and beliefs of our families. Yet, we are held accountable to uphold the laws, policies, regulations and public orders that we are given as well as uphold school procedures and rules. We understand that many families are not in support of a state requirement that will add the Covid-19 vaccine to the list of those required for school enrollment. We also understand that many families are in support of the vaccine and a vaccine requirement. This issue has become quite divisive and we do not want this division to cause us to disrespect one another or the beliefs of others. Ferndale Unified School District is proud of how we always listen to one another and care for one another. We have had very respectful conversations on many divisive topics and issues. If you are going to participate in a protest, walk-out or boycott, please don’t do so by disrupting learning at our schools. We have fought hard over the past year and a half to get students back to a regular routine of learning. Please also consider contacting your elected officials or protesting in a way that does not disrupt student learning. If your student is missing school for a protest, boycott or walk-out please be sure to have a parent/guardian notify the attendance office for absence verification as is our regular procedure. Verified absences do allow for students to make up their school work, but again we encourage you to find alternate, meaningful ways to be heard. Most importantly we need to listen to one another, respect one another and be kind. Take care, Beth Anderson Superintendent
