Learning Calendar Information

  • Spring Break, April 6 to 13: No virtual online learning – students and staff off school
  • April 13 – Until Further Notice: Online Virtual Learning continues for all HFCA students

We are asking that you reinforce with your scholar that this is not a vacation; rather, it is school in an alternative setting. Teachers will communicate learning objectives and provide instructional materials and assignments which will require completion at the beginning of each week. Teachers will also be assessing student learning.

We understand that transitioning from the classroom to virtual learning will require computing devices for all of our students. We are currently working to identify student needs regarding technology use. If you are in this situation, we are asking you to contact the office at (414) 873-4014 or visit https://howardfullerca.org/chromebook-check-out-information/

COMMUNICATIONS

STAY HEALTHY

During day-to-day activities, people can take the following measures to prevent infection, in accordance with WHO guidelines:

  • Clean the hands regularly with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer. The CDC also make this recommendation, advising that sanitizer should contain “at least 60% alcohol” and that people should wash their hands for at least 20 seconds.
  • Clean surfaces — such as kitchen seats and work desks — regularly with disinfectant.
  • Avoid crowded areas when going out, for people over 60 years old and people with any underlying health problems.
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who display flu-like symptoms, including coughing and sneezing.
  • Get accurate information about COVID-19. Some good sources include the Pan American Health Organization and WHO websites.
  • The American Red Cross also advises against touching the mouth, nose, or eyes when out and about, before having a chance to wash the hands.

The 211 social services hotline available for all Milwaukee area residents can be called at no charge, 24 hours a day. The service is similar to the 911 network that can be called in case of police, fire, and medical emergencies. Operators will provide callers with information on a wide variety of non-emergency family, financial, health and social service issues.Remember that help is as close as a free phone call to 2-1-1.
