A Message From Our Superintendent
Dear Fontana Unified Families,
We are happy to report that the first two weeks of our phased-in approach to returning to in-person instruction have been very successful. Our transitional kindergarten through second-grade students returned to in-person instruction at our schools the week of April 5, with our third through fifth-graders joining them the week of April 12.
At our April 14, 2021 board meeting, Our Board of Education continued the phased-in approach of bringing back students by giving their approval for the return of sixth-grade elementary students to campus beginning the week of April 26. These students will return in the same two full days per week hybrid schedule that the TK-5th grade students have successfully commenced. Families who do not wish to have their sixth-grade students return to in-person instruction have the option to remain on distance learning for the remainder of the year.
The Board of Education has also approved middle school and high school students' return beginning Monday, May 3, 2021.
Middle school students opting to return to in-person instruction will attend 3 class periods per day on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. High School students opting to return to in-person instruction will attend all 4 class periods on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Wednesdays will remain a distance learning day with wellness and attendance check-ins.
If you have any questions regarding your student's return to in-person instruction, please feel free to contact your school directly or email us at email@example.com.
We believe that having students return to in-person instruction is most beneficial to their academic success and emotional well-being. We are thrilled to begin welcoming students back to our campuses. We will continue to provide in-person opportunities as the COVID-19 numbers in our community continue to improve.

A. B. Miller State Testing Update
The state of California has allowed all school districts the option to determine which assessment to use in place of the state tests. Fontana Unified School District has decided to use the MAP Tests in both Reading and Math in place of the state test this year. All students in all grades will be taking the MAP tests. A. B. Miller will be taking the MAP Reading Test on Monday, April 12th and the MAP Math Test on Tuesday, April 13th. We will have 2 make up days in case students are unable to test on the testing day or if they do not complete the test. The make up days will be Thursday, April 15th and Friday, April 16th. On the testing days and make up days we will be on a modified testing schedule. Wednesday, April 14th will be a regular Wednesday Schedule. See the calendar and schedule below. Students will meet with their 2nd period class during the testing block. It is very important that students take the tests and do their best. The results of this test may be used for reclassification and for course selection for next school year.
El estado de California ha permitido a todos los distritos escolares la opción de determinar qué evaluación utilizar en lugar de las pruebas estatales. El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Fontana ha decidido usar los exámenes MAP en Lectura y Matemáticas en lugar del examen estatal este año. Todos los estudiantes de todos los grados tomarán las pruebas MAP. A. B. Miller tomará el examen de lectura MAP el lunes 12 de abril y el examen de matemáticas MAP el martes 13 de abril. Tendremos 2 días de recuperación en caso de que los estudiantes no puedan tomar el examen en el día de la prueba o si no completan la prueba. Los días de recuperación serán el jueves 15 y el viernes 16 de abril. Los días de examen y los días de recuperación tendrán un horario de examen modificado. El miércoles 14 de abril será el horario normal de los miércoles. Vea el calendario y el horario abajo. Los estudiantes se reunirán con su clase del segundo período durante el bloque de pruebas. Es muy importante que los estudiantes tomen los exámenes y hagan lo mejor posible. Los resultados de esta prueba pueden ser utilizados para la reclasificación y para la selección de cursos para el próximo año escolar.
