New Incoming Families

The 2020-2021 school year is certainly unlike any other, and we want you to know that we are here to answer any questions you have. We also want to help make the transition to Fox as easy as possible for your family.

While many things are in flux for 2020-2021, you can count on several Fox communication channels to keep you in-the-know for school news. Below we have listed some resources that you can sign up for to stay connected.

The Buddy Program

Fox's Buddy Program helps new families establish a connection with a "veteran" Fox family, so they may ask questions and immediately feel a part of the Fox community. Click here to sign up. We will match you with a current Fox family once the school year starts.

Weekly Newsletter

Every Sunday during the academic year, we send out an update on what's happening at the school and within the district. You will also receive important announcements and invitations to school events. Be sure to sign up here to get these updates.

Facebook Page

We post late-breaking news, reminders, school photos, and students-in-action videos. You can join here.

Fox Directory

The Fox PTA hosts this directory to help our community stay connected. It is only open to families of Fox students and to Fox staff, for non-commercial use only. Sign up here

Fox Calendar

You can view the Fox calendar here, and also subscribe to get updates. Click on the button "Sign up to receive automatic calendar updates" for next steps on how to subscribe. This calendar is subject to change as events within the community change.

SchoolForce

SchoolForce is our district's education foundation, and it is instrumental in raising money for our teachers and programs. SchoolForce supports the following: our library/librarian, on-site counseling and social-emotional education, music, art, reading specialists, science teachers and technology. Without the SchoolForce Foundation, all of these programs would be at risk. SchoolForce works to ensure an exceptional educational experience for all children in the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District. 

This year, our schools are facing unprecedented changes and budget restrictions. We know families are facing different financial challenges right now as well, but if you are able to do so, we encourage you to donate. You can check out all the amazing ways SchoolForce supports our students here. Sue Constantinides is our SchoolForce Fox Chair, feel free to reach out to her with questions at fox@schoolforce.org.

If you have any questions about these programs or about Fox in general, please feel free to reach out to the New Family Resource Team.
