  • 2019-2020 NEW START & END TIMES

    Clock icon On March 12, 2019, the FUSD School Board voted to institute new start and end times and additional early release days for our K-8 schools. These changes were made to accommodate the increasing growth of our district as more and more families see FUSD as the best place to learn for their children. In addition, this will provide more time for teachers to be trained and collaborate to ensure students are reaching their full potential.


    Walker Butte K-8 Leadership School new times-
    Regular School Day: 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
    Early Release Day: 8:00 am - 12:45 pm

    Register Online Graphic Dear Parents and Guardians,

    All families returning to the Florence Unified School District in the 2019-2020 school year are now required to re-register their students online through ParentVUE using the “registration” tab on our website:

    After logging into ParentVUE/Registration, you must verify current information and update any new information (address, emergency contacts, phone numbers, etc..) making sure you see the “complete” button for each student. If you do not complete the online re-registration, your student WILL NOT be registered for the new school year. Additionally, we must confirm proof of residence with all returning and new students.

    Re-registration must be completed by Wednesday, May 15, 2019.

    Reminder: If your student presently attends their FUSD school on a boundary variance you must re-apply for a boundary exception for the 2019-2020 school year by CLICKING HERE. If it is approved you can then fill out the re-registration. Additionally, if your boundary exception is approved, you will also be required to sign the boundary contract.

    Please take a few moments to re-register today!

    Right At School icon The Florence Unified School District welcomes all families to enroll students in their local school. As a public school system, the district provides instruction and support for students in kindergarten through grade 12 during regular school hours.

    However, because many families require childcare options before and after the school day the district has contracted with a childcare provider called Right At School to offer these services. Providing more options for families has been an interest of the school board and district administration.

    Right At School curriculum features hands-on learning, multi-sensory activities, child-driven projects, daily fitness, team building, and leadership development.
