Greetings Fremont Families,
I hope that your summer has been restful. If you have been around town, you have seen a great deal of progress on the four sites of our new elementary schools at Atkinson, Croghan, Lutz and Otis. The work at the four sites, which started this spring, is progressing nicely. The elementary schools are planned to open next fall and the high school is scheduled to open in the fall of 2021. As I write this note, we are just getting under way at the high school site on North Street. The work zones at the elementary schools have been fairly self-contained because we have been able to maintain existing traffic patterns and school entrances. This will not be the case at Ross High School. The location of the new building will roughly be where the current large parking lot is now. This fact is driving the necessity to move the main parking area to the back of the existing building. Our largest parking lot for students and staff will be where the buses used to park and people will enter the back of the building near the cafeteria. The next two years will be a challenge as we live in a construction zone. Please be patient with us as we do the best we can to manage traffic, parking and entrances to keep everyone safe through this historic time for Fremont City Schools. It is a great time to be a Little Giant!
Jon C. Detwiler, Superintendent
